24 weeks pregnant weight gain

In this article we are going to talk about 24 weeks pregnant weight gain, but first of all, let us congratulate the would be moms who have successfully made it through the first two trimesters. We know that at this time being pregnant is not that easy… The morning sickness might be gone, but there is variety of other inconveniences to replace that one. However, we do not doubt that you are doing great. To make sure that during the next week you continue making sure that your baby grows at normal rate (as you already know, this partially depends on how much you are eating), in the following paragraphs we will not only point out an approximate normal 24 weeks pregnant weight gain, but also mention the ways to manage your weight if you notice that you are gaining too much or too little.
So we won’t try your patience ant tell you right now: an average 24 weeks pregnant weight gain is about 15-20 pounds (counting since the day you got pregnant). Why is it so important that during the following, twenty-fourth, week you get enough nutrients (this is your actual goal, counting pounds is just one of the easiest ways to know how well you are doing)? Right now your baby is going through an extremely important stage of development. His brains are developing extremely quickly and his taste buds are continuing to develop as well. The 24th week is also very important stage in the development of baby’s lungs. What about your child’s looks? His skin is still extremely fin and transparent, he is already about 1 foot long and only weights 1 and 1/3 pounds, thus his body is pretty lean. But don’t worry, he will start to plum up really soon. By the end of the third trimester your baby will weight about three pounds and you will be 25-35 pound heavier than you have been before pregnancy.
You wonder why you are supposed to gain around ten times more then your baby weights? The placenta alone weight around 0,7kg and the ammonic fluids are responsible for another 0,8kg. Plus, there is variety of other processes taking place, such as the growth of muscle layer in your uterus, increase of blood volume and extra fluid in your body, breast growth and the increase in fat. Although proper diet is essential for each of these processes, the simple fact that your actual 24 weeks pregnant weight gain is a little different from what is usually suggested should not be considered a reason to freak out. Just visit your doctor and we are sure you two will find a way to fix it: maybe you could slightly decrease your calorie intake or start exercising?
