It can be so easy to just take the chance to eat lots of foodstuff and really not worry about the consequences! Though you are eating for two, it pays to remember that you ARE only eating for two, not three or more unless you are of course!!!!

Start with your BMI - Body Mass Index, a ratio between your height and weight at the time of conception and for most people a reliable indicator of their body fat. Then only you can decide how much weight should you gain during pregnancy.

Thus, you need to critically monitor your weight to ensure your well being as well as your baby's. The best move to know if your average weight gain is healthy is to ask your health expert. Normally, pregnant women with overweight women must gain 15 - 25 pounds during the pregnancy. Underweight women ought to at least have a weight gain during pregnancy of 28 - 40 pounds. And an average weight before pregnancy must gain 25 - 35 pounds.

Mother who gains too much weight has higher risk to having larger baby or early baby. Aside from that, they too are prone to specific diseases such as varicose veins, high blood pressure, diabetes etc. And if you lose weight during your pregnancy, this is also not safe since you and your baby's healthy can be compromised.

Add high protein food, iron, folic acid and calcium in your regular diet. A good and healthy pregnancy diet includes red meats, dairy, vegetables, fresh fruits and whole grains. This coupled with a good pre-natal iron supplement and vitamin supplement, if your doctor suggests, and you will be well on your way to having a healthy baby, as well as keeping your mass gain under control.
