Plus #Size #Pregnancy
If you’re a plus size woman with a new pregnancy, get ready for comments. Although a pregnancy does carry some extra risks if you’re overweight.
As any woman who has been pregnant will tell you, pregnancy seems to invite unwanted comments and advice.
Put them together and you’ve got a recipe for intrusion and judgment that can cast a shadow over what should be one of the most exciting and important times in your life.
You deserve to relax and enjoy your pregnancy!
Some common questions answered..
What is a #plus size #pregnancy?
Actually, a plus size pregnancy isn’t about #clothing size: it’s about #weight. Specifically, doctors look at body mass index (#BMI), which is your ratio of your #height to your weight.
If your BMI is 25 to 29.9, you’re considered #overweight.
If your BMI is 30 or above, you’re considered #obese.
What is healthy plus size pregnancy weight gain?
For overweight range, aim for a total weight gain of 15-20 pounds, more in second and third trimester.
For obese range, stay under 15 pounds of weight gain during pregnancy.
Pregnancy is NOT a time to go on a weight loss diet—even if you are obese or overweight. Your body will naturally start to convert stored #fat into energy during your pregnancy and this helps you maintain your weight even as your #baby grows.
What are the plus size pregnancy risks?
Some of the #complications that plus size women are more at risk for include:
Neural #tube #defects
Fortunately, there are some things you can do to help minimize your #risk. At the top of the list is eating a well-balanced, healthy diet and #Folic Acid to prevent neural tube defects.
Most likely, you will also have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. However, because being overweight does increase your risk of developing some #complications, it’s especially important that you get good #prenatal health care from a friendly doctor and take good care of your body.
