Thanks for that Brightcurve but how much is the limited boundary? Is it the maximum or the minimum that is needed to be gained by the mother?

 

Brightcurve - December 16

In your case tiny, you are underweight before pregnancy then it is required to gain 5 to 6 pounds during the first trimester and 1 to 2 pounds on the second and third trimesters.

Okay, so if these requirements are not met what are the possible risks that might encountered?

 

Brightcurve - December 16

Risks such as miscarriage, complications like low-birth weight infant and premature delivery.

sometimes because of morning sickness it is difficult to attain the required weight.

 

Brightcurve - December 16

Yes, that is one factor that is difficult to handle. Not only the mother's condition will suffer but also that of the baby.

What could be the cause for such morning sickness? Not all mothers are encountering such.

 

AileenMay - December 16

It may be caused by hormonal changes but not really proven. Some even say it is most common with mothers carrying twins or triplets.

So what are the things that we can do to avoid morning sickness?

 

AileenMay - December 16

Most common advice is to eat a little and often. Before going to bed you may eat a little bread or yoghurt and in getting up in the morning take your time to get up and eat some bread before standing up.

what is the normal weight of a person so as not be called underweight or overweight?

 

PerryTim - December 22

It has something to do with your age and height. So it means that every person differs from the other's normal weight.

 

a n n a b e l l e - December 22

hmmm... so is there a certain formula for that so i can compute and measure my normal weight?

 

Fishlette - December 22

My friend who is a nutritionist taught me the formula. It is called the BMI or Body Mass Index wherein your body weight is divided by the square of your height. I don't know about the use of the age.

 

a n n a b e l l e - December 22

i see, i don't really get it but i will try to use your formula Fishlette. thanks.

If you really want to be sure and accurate then you try to consult your doctor and if indeed you are under or overweight at least you will be given some advice on how to correct it.
