no weight gain during pregnancy

Recently we have heard that some women are aiming for no weight gain during pregnancy and that made us seriously concerned. With all honesty, we do understand how important it is for the young women to stay in shape. Packing on pounds is always easy, but getting rid of them is a totally different story… I know that the young would-be moms who have been working really hard to achieve the perfect lines and are used to seeing men turning their heads towards them as they walk by, must find it hard to make peace with an idea that their bodies are going to change. But putting your baby in danger, just so it would be easier for you to regain the bikini body after giving birth, is unforgivable.
Of course, we are not talking about the would-be moms who were obese when they got pregnant. Although some ten years ago most doctors believed that every woman, including the ones that already have a massive overweight, should get heavier at least by 10 pounds at least, today most researches show that in such cases no weight during pregnancy does stand in the way of healthy development of the baby. Of course, there is still a rather wide agreement that no female should be losing weight while pregnant, but as long as the women eats healthy food and gets enough calories, not packing on pounds is ok. In fact, at least till the end of the third semester no weight gain during pregnancy is quite common. This happens because after learning they are carrying a new life women start taking better care of their bodies and this incudes giving up junk food and replacing it with more fruits and vegetables, as well as exercising. In such cases stable weight is not an indication that the baby is not growing fast enough. He is growing and your body is preparing for motherhood. It is just that while your body mass keeps increasing due to these processes, you are simultaneously losing a little bit of weight due to your changed lifestyle.
Although the ladies who were obese are “allowed” to maintain the same weight over the nine months of pregnancy, all the others should not make this mistake. Even if you are afraid that the extra pounds will remain years after you give birth, we are sure that if you look deeper into your soul you will find out that you are much more afraid to unintentionally cause any harm for your baby. Of course, the fact that no weight gain during pregnancy could put your baby at risk does not mean that the more pounds you pack on, the healthier your baby will be born. Pregnancy should not be used as an excuse to overeat!
