Answer:

4 Months Pregnant Body Changes

More than the increase in the abdominal girth, it is important that you consider weight gain as an essential parameter to judge the growth of the child. It is important to realize that changes will be obvious, especially if you are lean and thin. The changes will be limited at this stage if you were already obese prior to the pregnancy.

The abdominal girth will grow considerably only after the fifth month of pregnancy and bring about noticeable changes in your body structure.

Over the entire pregnancy, a healthy average sized female would gain about 11 kgs (20-30 pounds). During the first three months of pregnancy the weight gain is nominal and in the range of three to four pounds, during the second and the third trimester you would ideally gain about twelve pounds and nine pounds respectively. The weight gain is also affected by the weight and body mass index of the female prior to pregnancy.

If you are worried, please get yourself evaluated by your gynecologist. An ultrasound examination of the fetus will help you gain insight into how well the fetus is growing and whether there are any problems.

    I also get a coughing and vomiting sensation and I Don’t think there is much you can do for it. I am 12 weeks pregnant and I get the same sensations that you have. After I vomit I am completely fine for a while. This doesn’t happen every day just comes and goes. I think it just depends on what you have eaten.

    I am 4 months pregnant. Sometimes I have to remain empty stomach due to illness or sometime I am out of my house. Does empty stomach for few hours will harm my baby inside?

      Remaining empty stomach for long duration when you are pregnant will make you feel tired and fatigued. Also your baby will remain devoid of nutrition, if you remain hungry regularly for many hours. Try to eat something healthy even if you are out of your home. If you have planned to go outside, you can carry some snacks. Try to eat something every three to four hours. You can eat fruits such as banana, apple etc even if you are outside. It will provide energy and nutrition to you and your baby too.
