Answer: Hi dear, Totally understand your state as I myself suffered from acne in pregnancy.yes,it was due to hormonal changes.the only thing helped me was drinking plenty of water.also keeping your face clean.no oily creams or cosmetics.i applied aloe Vera gel for moisturizer.used turmeric and sandalwood paste on acne.avoid touching the acne as much as possible.change your pillow sheets twice a week.fresh fruits and seasonal vegetables helps to regulate hormones.also avoid spicy,deep fried stuff,sugary foods.for scars you could use sandalwood paste on it. By gaining too much weight while pregnant can raise your risk for birth complications like c section delivery and premature birth. And even if you start pregnancy overweight or obese sticking to the recommended range of weight gain can significantly reduce your risk of health problems like diabetes. I can understand how difficult it could get to reduce weight. But reduce or gain it in a healthy way.try the following tips: 1- starting the pregnancy at healthy weight,which you have already done it .so good job! 2- eat in moderation and more frequently.it would help you check your sugar and also increase metabolism. 3- eat complex carbs.like oats,brown rice, wholewheat and quinoa.they digest slow and keep you full for longer time 4-keep moving.include light exercises,like walking and swimming in your daily routine.it not only would check on your weight but also ensure flexiblity 5-plenty fluids.drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water to keep you hydrated and flush out toxins. Donot force yourself to starve and crash diet.it would harm you and your growing baby. Weight would increase,as your body's hormones and water retention increases. Amniotic fluid also adds on. So donot worry much,post deliverey the weight would go and slowly through breastfeeding and healthy life style you can get back your pre pregnancy weight .
