  • Age (young mothers are less inclined to corpulence).
  • Early toxicosis (after it, as you know, the body tries to replenish the lost kilograms).
  • Baby size (the bigger it is, the more difficult the mother is, respectively).
  • Little or polyhydramnios.
  • Increased appetiteand control over it.
  • Tissue fluid (with the existing fluid retention in my mother's body there will always be an excess of weight).


In order to avoid complications, one should not go beyond the known weight frames. To starve, of course, categorically impossible - the crumb must receive all the necessary substances for him, and one should not risk his health. But everything is not worth it - lean on healthy dishes.
