How can I prevent stretch marks and weight gain during pregnancy?
Hello, I am 3 months pregnant. I was always overweight and conscious about how I looked. I started exercising and losing weight. As I am pregnant I don’t want to gain extra weight and stretch marks. How can I prevent stretch marks and weight gain during pregnancy?
@noopur Hello, weight gain and stretch marks during pregnancy are normal. stretch marks can happen when your skin pulls apart quickly due to rapid weight gain. You may also notice stretch marks after rapid weight loss. Some people develop stretch marks during growth spurts, such as during puberty. Eat a healthy diet and exercise to help you manage your weight. If you do notice rapid weight gain or weight loss. Stay hydrated (Drinking enough water may help keep your skin hydrated and soft. Soft skin doesn’t tend to develop stretch marks as much as dry skin does). Eat nutrient-Rich food (Stretch marks may also occur if you lack nutrition in certain areas. Eating foods that boost skin health may help). Include vitamin C, zinc, and vitamin D in your diet.
