Pregnancy Weekly Guide

[Week 19 Mother] Beginning to feel the extra weight.

Your belly is growing, your body is getting heavier, your legs are swollen, and your shoulders and back are aching. Your body is tired, but your appetite is increasing.

Since you can't exercise as vigorously as you did before pregnancy, and your body doesn't keep up with you, it's easy to gain weight quickly.

Why not try to weigh yourself once a week to gain 300 to 500 grams a week? Moderate cardio and stretching will help both you and your baby.
