If you’re concerned about controlling your weight gain, it’s better to exercise a little than going on a diet.
Regular, moderate physical activity (such as walking, swimming, prenatal yoga) may help you and your baby gain the proper weight, as well as reducing the discomforts of pregnancy, such as backache, leg cramps, constipation, bloating, and swelling and to improve sleep.
Check your weight gain during pregnancy through regular weighing. The weight you should gain during pregnancy depends on the weight you had before pregnancy.
*Consult your doctor for your weight classification.
