Healthy Pregnancy Weight Gain Can Help Your Kiddos
As the health benefits of working out keep on piling up, now there’s even more reason to stay active to keep the pounds from piling on—and it’s not just about you. A recent study showed that children of mothers who gain more than the recommended amount of weight during pregnancy are more likely to be overweight at age seven. Children whose mothers who are obese prior to pregnancy and gain excessive weight are at the greatest risk for being overweight. So while women at healthy pre-pregnancy weights are encouraged to gain 25 to 35 pounds, staying active and eating right can help keep you at appropriate pregnancy weight. Fit bottomed girls lead to fit bottomed babies! And seriously, what’s cuter than a fit bottomed baby?
