Pregnancy & Weight Gain
During pregnancy many women experience large amounts of food cravings. This is completely normal, however do not blow it out of porportion! :P For instance, if you have a craving for chocolate, maybe have chocolate milk instead, to satisfy the need for a chocolate "snack". It is not good to gain over 30lbs during pregnancy, the average weight gain is 25-30lbs. But keep in mind, this is only for expecting mothers carrying one child. Expecting mothers of multiples carry weight that varys on how many babbies they are expecting. One of the main reasons that it is not good to over eat duuring pregnancy is that it could cause high blood pressure and put the fetus in a dangerous risk, also it could lead to diabetes during the pregnancy.
