Answer: You have to be positive dear, your baby might be 4 or 4.5 kgs while born. Generally in india babies born with the weight in between of 5lbs to 10lbs means 2.75 kg to 4.50 kgs around. Which does not consider over weight. Your baby might have little bit extra weight than expected but when babies born they start loose weight till 2 weeks. After 15 days they starts to regain. So don't worry about any complications as your baby gonna be super healthy. And for his future health you can make his schedule with proper diet and physical workouts and massage. He will be fine dear. Take care of you and baby.. All the best.

Answer: Dont worry..average weight you gain during pregnancy is between 10 to 15 kgss if you want to prevent weight gainAvoid excessive sugary or fatty foods as these contain empty calories and, although tasty, don't help keep your weight stable.Eat lots of fruit and vegetables with lean meat or fish.Remember that potatoes and bread are not fattening until you put butter on them.Brown or wholemeal bread is more filling than the white variety, as is brown rice compared to white.Alcoholic drinks are best avoided as they are not recommended for either mother-to-be or baby – fruit juice with sparkling mineral water is a good alternative.If you feel an attack of the nibbles coming on, opt for dried fruit and a glass of water, this will help fill you up and avoid constipation, which is a common side effect of pregnancy.
