Fasting days for pregnant women, pregnancy and childbirth

Being pregnant, I gained weight too quickly. When in the sixth month the increase exceeded 10 kg, I panicked. I was afraid that the story of my first pregnancy would be repeated, and again, after the birth, I would be overweight, which the nursing mother would not be able to get rid of.

A nurse from the women’s clinic, who constantly scolded me about too much increase, advised me to hold fasting days. As she said, they will help and keep weight, and willpower to work out 🙂

With willpower it was difficult to negotiate. As soon as I set myself up for the unloading wave, an unknown force immediately pulled me to the refrigerator in search of something tasty. Usually this did not happen until late in the evening 🙂

Pregnant women need to especially carefully monitor their diet. Therefore, before spending fasting days, I consulted a doctor and wrote down the rules that he advised to follow.

one. On fasting days you need to eat only one product. If the temptation is great, you can afford to drink low-fat kefir. I also drank green tea without sugar, it helped me to warm up during the cold season.

2 Pregnant women are allowed to spend fasting days no more than once a week or after a meal with an abundance of fatty or sweet food.

3 Do not forget to drink water. Ideally, the amount of water should be at least 2 liters. If you suffer from swelling, limit the use of water in the evening. In order not to forget about the water, I put a full jug in each room.

four. If fasting days are difficult, try to do something for yourself. Walking around the city, embroidering or cleaning will distract you from thinking about food. If I stopped following this rule, I was immediately attacked by zhor from idleness. Especially if there was something tasty in the fridge.

five. When choosing foods for fasting days, choose those that are low in calories and do not cause heartburn. I did buckwheat, vegetable and fish days. Apples and juices, which the doctor advised, caused me to have heartburn.

Spending fasting days, I did not hope for the result. At that time I was very dissatisfied with my appearance and seemed to myself a beefy hippo 🙂 A month later I came to the doctor. It turned out that in a month I gained only 200 g.


I was frightened thinking that something was wrong with my pregnancy. But, as the doctor explained to me, these are the consequences of fasting days. Overweight began to go away, so the increase became imperceptible.

I made sure that fasting days help pregnant women keep their weight in order. But still I advise you to consult a doctor before taking such a step.
