Pregnancy is an exciting time and most mom’s can’t wait to meet their baby. As your baby grows, your belly will continue to grow and get bigger so that you can house your growing baby. Most doctors recommend that women gain between 10 to 40 pounds depending on your starting weight. Talk to your doctor or health care professional to determine how much weight your doctor expects for you to gain during your pregnancy. It is important that you don’t restrict weight gain or start a diet during the duration of your pregnancy. Your baby depends on you for nutrients and your body begins storing extra calories in order to prepare your body to breast fed your baby.
