Diet for pregnant women

Earlier it was said that the pregnant woman would eat for two. It’s not true. You should not eat twice as much as before. On the other hand, you should consider meeting the nutritional needs of two individuals.

All the nutrition the child should have during pregnancy gets it from you through the umbilical cord. Therefore, your diet during pregnancy is important. If you do not get into some subjects, the child does not get them either.

How much should you get up during pregnancy?

A weight gain of 10-12 kilograms is considered normal. For practical reasons, you divide the pregnancy in the first, second and third trimesters (third).

The first trimester is the first 12 weeks. Then it is reasonable to go up 1-2 kilos.

The second trimester is between week 12 and 28. Then it is reasonable to go up 300-400 grams per week.

Third trimester is from 28th to 40th week. Then it’s good to go up less than 3 kilos and more than 1 kilo per month.

If you go up more than 600 grams per week, consult your doctor or midwife to check that you are not getting any fluid collections or developing diabetes.

Large fluid accumulation may also be due to the fact that you eat wrong food or move too little. If this occurs, consult your doctor or midwife.

When you are pregnant, the need for nutrition increases. Choose good nutritious food and be restrained with candy, coffee, ice cream and sweet drinks. Particularly important is that you get enough of vitamin B folate, iron, calcium, vitamin D and omega 3 fatty acids.

Due to the effect of hormones, your bowel has reduced mobility during pregnancy. It can cause sluggish / stomach ache. Even iron tablets may affect the stomach. Fiber rich food and drinking lots of water will help. Eat fruits, vegetables, whole grains, wheat bran and prunes. Drink 2-3 liters of water distributed throughout the day.

Exercise. Physical activity also counteracts sluggish / stomach ache because exercise stimulates bowel movements. It is good to move regularly. Swim or go fast at 2-3 times a week for 20-30 minutes at a time.
