Pregnancy is the most beautiful and also most difficult phase in a women's life. Pregnancy triggers numerous physical changes in a woman’s body, including water retention and weight gain. After delivery, many women have difficulty returning to their prepregnancy weight with average weight retention of 0.5 to 3.8kg (1.1 to 8.4lbs) noted per pregnancy. (Brad A.roy)
