The reasonable weight gain level for pregnant women is 10-14kg, divided into 3 stages: 1st trimester: insignificant weight gain, about 1-2kg; 2nd trimester: gain about 5-6kg; 3rd trimester: gain about 6-7kg.

Since the second trimester, if you gain fewer than 3-4kg, it’s call slow weight gain. Most of the reasons are due to their sickness or poor nutrition.

Troubles when pregnant women don’t gain enough weight

Insignificant weight gaining during pregnancy may be caused as you’re unable to absorb enough essential nutrition. This relates to defects in fetus. The most obvious example for your reference is, when the diet doesn’t supply you at least 400mcg of folic acid per day, the neural tube and spinal cord defects can occur to fetus. (Folic acid rich foods contain beans, orange juice, bread, cereal…).

Diets lack vitamins such as A, E, K, B2 and other substances (such as iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc) which relates to anemia in pregnant women and reduce the baby’s brain function.

If you don’t gain enough weight, you will have to face early labor. If you don’t have that, the baby can easily be low in weight after birth. This goes with tons of health problems in the baby, such as stunted growth afterwards.

The main meals within the day should have sufficient group of nutriments: protein, lipid, vitamin and fiber. You should have 2-3 snacks per day with bread, cakes, milk, fruits… The foods must be fresh and delicious enough before being cooked. Foods available for sale such as bottled milk, fresh milk, cookies… must reach the hygiene and quality standards.

You should diversify the nutriments to stimulate appetite and make digesting food better. Many researches show that milk is a precious source of nutrition for pregnant women and babies. Doctors recommend that women should have milk every day as milk contains fat, protein, glucose, vitamin, and essential nutriments for the body. You should drink enough water to make sure that the metabolism inside your body is smooth. Water also helps you to eliminate wastes accumulating in your body.
