How Can I Manage My Weight While Pregnant?

03/11/2009

Question:

I am already overweight and I do not want to gain any more weight than I have to. What type of exercises can I do while pregnant? What type of diet should I follow?

Answer:

Any diet and exercise plan must be designed to maintain adequate nutrition for pregnancy and not put the fetus at risk. I would discuss this with your doctor who, in some cases with the aid of a dietitian, can develop a healthy diet to maintain a good weight.
