What care should I take during pregnancy so as not to gain weight?

There will be an inevitable weight gain due to the baby's growth, but with cravings and emotional changes, it is possible to gain a few extra kilos by eating certain foods. It is important not to overindulge in sweets to avoid gestational diabetes.

Women can control their weight by maintaining a healthy and balanced diet. The doctor can provide a table of foods that can be consumed throughout the pregnancy and will keep track of the evolution of the pregnant woman's weight during check-ups. The woman should gain 11 to 14 kilos during the entire pregnancy.
