weight gain breakdown
I see so many posts on here where women are concerned about weight gain during pregnancy. It is very easy to keep yourself informed on topics like this. March of Dimes, APA, and many other sources will give you a breakdown of the weight you are gaining. You are SUPPOSED to gain weight when you are pregnant.
For a 30 lb weight gain, here is the breakdown:
Amniotic fluid-2 lbs
Body fluids-4 lbs
Fat, protein and other nutrients-7 lbs
People who were underweight before getting pregnant are also supposed to gain more than people who were overweight. In this "fake news" climate please keep yourself informed.
