Weight Gain during Pregnancy

Still continuing on pregnancy weight gain, we should remember NOT to gain too much weight during pregnancy. Back when we were in medical school, we were told that the ideal weight gain is 2 pounds for the first trimester, then 10 pounds for both second and third trimesters. Of course, this is not absolute, but, hey a 50 pound weight gain is mommy's weight gain, not baby's. If you make your calories count and not take too much sugary and fatty snacks, you should be able to gain a healthy baby weight, slim down gradually after giving birth (without having to look for thebest diet pills) safely!
