    Without a proper monitoring the period of pregnancy could be very trying. My wife always has one complain or the other in the second and third trimesters. Our doctor requested that she cut down on her  her weight prior to conceiving. Monitoring weight could be very tricky , thanks to technology. The reasons for cutting down on weight during pregnancy as well highlighted here, are crucial to the health of both mother and child. Thank you for this educative article.

      Pregnant women who are conscious of their weight while pregnant are at an advantage for smooth pregnancy and delivery. Overweight can make pregnant women lazy and sickly and thereby may feel lazy to push their babies during delivery hence complications may arise.

    You are so right it’s very important to take care of yourself by eating healthy and staying fit especially while trying to get pregnant and being pregnant.  Its also important to do this when you’re not pregnant as we all want to feel the best we can for as long as we can.

    I have one of these scales that measures fat, water, and muscle mass they are very good to have and I would suggest recommend these to anyone not just the pregnant.

    I think it’s important to monitor your progress while pregnant but also important for people who are self conscience about their weight to be careful not to deplete calories from your baby because they are afraid to gain too much as well.

      Dear Amanda,

      What you said is right. Everybody needs to take care of self especially measuring their body weight from time to time to watch when gaining excess weight so that it would be easy to control at the early start. So it not only for the pregnant women but I use them as an example as they are my audience.

      Thanks for your comment

    This a great and helpful article to read, it’s good to see there’s some valuable information to share and help mothers to be about why is important to take care of themselves and how important is to keep weight right.
    I remember when I was pregnant from my first son (a few years ago) the doctor told me I was gaining weight so fast and I should get a diet to keep my weight under control. I was shocked, I didn’t want to do it.
    But I did that diet anyway, and it proved me I was so wrong, my pregnancy went well, the baby was born healthy and with good weight and I was so happy as I didn’t weight much at all.
    I still remember when a cousin visited me and the baby and she told me: – wow! you’re wearing already your regular clothing!
    I find the scale you recommend in this article and the tips you share to help young women to stay on their healthy weight will help them a lot, and there’s a good reason to keep an eye on out weight, our health.

    Hello,
    Gaining a lot of weight is a fear that all woman have during pregnancy.
    My question is: What happens if you don’t eat more than normal during your pregnancy, could this hurt your baby? I also read the comment of SJ below, and I found it so funny 🙂 I think a pregnant woman doesn’t need to eat for two because the baby is so small that it wouldn’t be a big difference.
    And do you need another weight monitoring tool for pregnant woman than you need for not pregnant people? How is it different?

      Hi,

      You have to eat good food not necessarily  eating more than normal. You have to eat healthy by making sure you eat enough vegetables and protein and less carbohydrate because almost every food we eat contains some carbohydrate. Eat less at time. Take healthy snacks in between, Support it with some exercise. You will notice you will feel healther and strong even though you are eating less and your pregnancy will progress normal.

  6. SJ says:

    This is such a great article, thank you.

    I find being pregnant that people don’t help you by encouraging you to eat more and saying oh well you are eating for two. Which is totally not true. The other one of us is very very small and doesn’t need to eat THAT much.

    This makes it more difficult to keep your weight. But with the tool you have provided it will be easier to keep accountable – not just weight but fat count as well. Will be taking action.

      Monitoring your weight while pregnant is no more a serious issue, previously,  if you don’t go to your health provider you wouldn’t know what your weight is, technology has made it easy for everyone.

       Pregnant mothers can check their weight anywhere even when they are in a journey because some are portable and can be carried around wherever you go.

       This can help you eat your meals with relaxed mind knowing what level your previous weight is.

    Yes, when I was pregnant with my son – 17 years ago – I did put on quite a lot of weight for my size. I’m petit, so weight would aggravate my ankles more severely than with taller women. I must admit, I didn’t use monitor, nor did I check my weight regularly. In fact, as far as I remember, midwife never seemed worried about my weight. But it’s also true that I kept myself active by doing a great amount of walking. You are right, gaining too much weight during pregnancy can lead to gestational complications, but it can also lead to health problems later in life. Keeping active, without necessarily going into strenuous sports activities, is vital to having a problem free pregnancy.

    1. admin says:

      Hi GiuliaB,

      Naturally when you are pregnant, the increased pregnancy hormone together with the presence of the baby tend to increase the pregnant your size and weight. This type of  weight increase will stop few months after you  deliver your baby and stops breast feeding the baby with or without any care( monitoring) But the combination of this weight and food the woman eats during and even after delivery especially if you eat indiscriminately as some woman do due to child demanding.

      It is very imperative you monitor your weight regularly. It is not only what will happen to you after all but to the baby. The baby might get too big and experience difficult delivery, deformity or even dead. 

      Monitoring your weight is highly advised and encouraged.
