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.
