Gigi Leung Caves in to Eating Urges; Gains 20 Pounds in Five-Month Pregnancy
Since getting married with her Spanish husband Sergio in 2011, Gigi Leung (梁詠琪) tried to get pregnant without success for two years. In September 2014, Gigi Leung happily announced that she is expecting. With her sugar cravings increasing during her five-month pregnancy, Gigi has already gained 2o pounds.
Unhealthy Weight Gain
Gigi revealed that she felt immense pressure due to their previous failed attempts at pregnancy. Sergio suggested a vacation to the United States to help Gigi relax, which resulted in her successful conception.
As Gigi is 38 years old, her pregnancy is considered high-risk. Over the last few months, Gigi experienced a much larger appetite. The once thin, long-legged beauty has already gained 20 pounds. Her chest size has also increased from an A-cup to a D-cup.
While obstetricians recommend that healthy weight gain for pregnant women should not exceed three pounds per month, Gigi’s weight gain has surpassed this recommendation.
According to health professionals, exceeding this limit may result in diabetes, chronic hypertension, and other health issues.
Uncontrollable Cravings for Sweets
During their recent trip to a candy shop, Gigi uncontrollably purchased a large quantity of sweets. Her husband stayed close to her side and constantly discouraged her from overbuying. Sergio also carefully guided Gigi inside the crowded store to protect her from any accidental bumps. Distracted by the candy assortment and her shopping spree, Gigi was unresponsive to her husband’s touches.
Gigi’s figure has noticeably gotten rounder and she may need to control her eating habits during her remaining pregnancy for healthy fetal development and prevent excess weight gain ahead.
