But, this process of fat gaining can be increased a lot by the woman herself. There is an opinion that pregnant women should eat doubled portions to feed herself and the kid as well. But that’s the wrong approach to the healthy baby carrying. Physical processes are distributed in the way she needs small increase of taking calorie (maximum 500).
