YOU MUST KNOW MOM…
To eat well during pregnancy, you must do more than simply increase how much you eat. You must also consider what you eat. Although you need about 300 extra calories a day – especially later in your pregnancy when your baby grows quickly – those calories should come from nutritious foods so they can contribute to your baby’s growth and development.
WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO EAT WELL WHEN YOU’RE PREGNANT?
Do you wonder how it’s reasonable to gain 25 to 35 pounds (on average) during your pregnancy when a newborn baby weighs only a fraction of that?
Although it varies from woman to woman, this is how those pounds may add up:
– 7.5 pounds – average baby’s weight
– 2 pounds – breast enlargement
– 7 pounds – your body’s extra stored protein, fat, and other
– 1.5 pounds – the placenta
– 2 pounds – enlargement of your uterus
– 2 pounds – amniotic fluid surrounding your baby
– 4 pounds – your extra blood
– 4 pounds – your other extra body fluids
Of course, patterns of weight gain during pregnancy vary. It’s normal to gain less if you start out heavier and more if you’re having twins or triplets – or if you were underweight before becoming pregnant. More important than how much weight you gain is what makes up those extra pounds?
When you’re pregnant, what you eat and drink is the main source of nourishment for your baby. In fact, the link between what you consume and the health of your baby is much stronger than once thought. That’s why doctors now say, for example, that no amount of alcohol consumption should be
considered safe during pregnancy.
The extra food you eat shouldn’t just be empty calories This should provide the nutrients your growing baby needs. For example, calcium helps make and keep bones and teeth strong.
While you’re pregnant, you still need calcium for your body, plus extra calcium for your developing baby. Similarly, you require more of all the essential nutrients than you did before you became pregnant.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost 4 million American women give birth every year. Nearly one third of them will have some kind of pregna‚¬â€œ related complication. Those who don’t get adequate prenatal care run the risk that such complications will go undetected or won’t be dealt with soon enough. That, in turn, can lead to potentially serious consequences for both the mother and her baby.
These statistics aren’t meant to alarm you, but rather to convey the importance of starting prenatal care as early as possible ideally, before you even get pregnant. Of course, this isn’t always possible or practical. But the sooner in
your pregnancy you begin, the better your chances of ensuring your own health and that of your baby.
GETTING ENOUGH FOLIC ACID
The U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all women of childbearing age – and especially those who are planning a pregnancy consume about 400 micrograms (0.4 mg) of folic acid everyday. Adequate folic acid intake is very important 1 month before conception and at least 3 months afterward to reduce the risk of having a fetus with a neural tube defect. During pregnancy, women should increase the amount of folic acid from 400 to 800 micrograms (0.4 to 0.8 milligrams) daily.
How can you make sure you’re getting enough folic acid? In 1998, the Food and Drug Administration mandated that folic acid be added to enriched grain products – so you can increase your intake by looking for breakfast cereals, breads, pastas, and rice containing 100% of the recommended daily folic acid allowance. But for most women, eating fortified foods isn’t enough. To reach the recommended daily level, you’ll probably need a vitamin supplement. Talk to your doctor about whether he or she recommends a prescription supplement or an over-the-counter brand.
Also talk to your doctor if you’ve already had a pregnancy that was affected by a neural tube defect. He or she may recommend that you increase your daily intake of folic acid (even before getting pregnant) to lower your risk of having another one occur.
