3 Important Pregnancy Questions You Should Know The Asnwers To!

Dec 12, 2007
On thing that remains constant in spite of the fact that you are conceiving for the first, or second, or even the Nth time, is that there are queries, which every mom-to-be wants answered. Although the information that can be sourced online, from medical specialists, and sometimes even your own personal experience can be very useful, it is important to note that every pregnancy is unique and a completely new state of affairs is generated always.

Needing to ask pregnancy-related questions is very essential for the health and welfare of the mother as well as the unborn child. Nobody should feel discomfited or embarrassed at posing questions for which he or she does not have the answers. Taking note of this fact, the following are some regular pregnancy queries and their relevant answers.

1.On question that always does the rounds, is that, what is the right amount of weight that a woman can put on, and still be considered healthy?

The answer to this is that, in the case of a woman, who is of the standard size and whose baby too, is normal sized, the weight gain is generally between 25-35 pounds. In the case of a mother who is below the normal weight, the doctors may recommend a higher weight gain.

And finally, where an overweight mom is concerned, a doctor may suggest adding on less weight as far as possible. Whatever the weight category that an expectant mom falls into, what is very crucial is that she should consume healthy meals routinely and always remain hydrated. The significance of this factor cannot be stressed upon sufficiently.

2. A further commonly asked question pertains to fitness. How safe is it to work out during a pregnancy?

This query is quite a simple one. In case the new mom-to-be was full of zip prior to the pregnancy, then she can continue to remain active even during her pregnancy. Obviously, a little bit of reasoning, could help things.

Consult with your physician if your blood pressure levels are on the higher side, or you wish to initiate a new fitness program while you are pregnant.

Perspiring and setting your pulse racing is okay if it is kept within the prescribed limits. An expectant mom will ensure she gulps down plenty of water and stays away from places where sweating cannot take place profusely, such as a hot bath.

3. Limitations with regard to the pregnancy diet are also a frequently asked question. Generally, no restrictions on diet are set for pregnancy in the case of a healthy mother.

Nevertheless, medical professionals do advise consuming only meats that are properly cooked. An expectant woman would be wise to omit Sushi from her diet during this period. Ensuring that the meat is well cooked would certainly help avoid some unfavorable side effects.

Besides, a pregnant woman should exercise caution while
consuming unpasteurized cheeses and raw eggs. The intake of caffeine should be strictly monitored. On the whole, it is not necessary for the diet of an expectant woman to be changed drastically for the sake of the baby's health, even though certain factors need to be taken into account.

Queries pertaining to pregnancy are a vital component of maintaining a healthy and sound pregnancy. Important resources that can be tapped for solutions consist of your physician, books on this subject and the wisdom of women who have gone through the whole process and have lived to tell the tale.
