Many women go into their pregnancies worrying about gaining weight. This whole attitude is only strengthened by many doctors, who are obsessed with weighing women every time they come to prenatal appointments. I guess most women worry about putting on too much weight in pregnancy, and wonder if they will be able to get rid of that excess weight after they give birth. It is perfectly understandable that you don't want to look like you are six months pregnant with a newborn in arms! Let's look at ways to prevent gaining too much weight in pregnancy, without worrying too much. After all, pregnancy is hardly the time to go on a diet!

The key to putting on just the amount of weight that you need to to sustain yourself and your growing baby is eating healthy. That sounds simple enough, doesn't it? The rules of healthy eating and healthy living don't really change in pregnancy, and the trick to staying healthy is eating healthy foods plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, full-fat dairy, and protein are all good. Trans fats and processed foods are best eaten in moderation. Of course, in today's world, avoiding processed foods altogether is like Mission Impossible, especially if you are tired from pregnancy and still working full-time. But keeping these kinds of foods to a minimum is wise.

Eating lots of sugary fruits and things like bread will make you put on more weight than you might want to. Did you know that eating as many fruits and vegetables as you want will never cause you to become overweight? If you are craving foods, there is harm in eating! It is just important to make sure that you are not eating too many of the wrong foods. It is quite possible to avoid putting on lots of weight in pregnancy. I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight pretty much immediately after giving birth.
