pregnantThat chocolate ice cream might look mighty tasty when you're pregnant, but moderation is key. You don't want to go overboard. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) reports that gaining too much weight and or being overweight before your pregnancy can increase various risks during pregnancy. ACOG reports that miscarriage is a risk factor associated with being obese. But other risks can occur as well. Being overweight can increase your risk of developing gestational hypertension, preeclampsia, and gestational diabetes. A negative (or too high) body mass index can increase the odds that you'll end up with a cesarean birth. Tips:
  • Eat a balanced diet and treats in moderation.
  • Cravings! If you want a sweet treat try fruit, cold and creamy; yogurt or frozen chocolate low fat milk.
  • Talk to your care provider about a safe pre-pregnancy and pregnancy exercise routine. Walking, swimming, and yoga are good safe choices but if you're careful you can still jog, lift arm weights, and ride an exercise bike. Again, remember to talk to your care provider about safety.
  • Get together with other pregnant mamas. It's easier to exercise with a buddy or two. Go for a long walk in a city area and window shop!
  • If you're considering getting pregnant, talk to your care provider to learn about reaching a healthy weight before hand.
