Answer: Alohadopa is given to treat hypertension...and high bp leads to slow growth in baby...if the gynecologist has recommended this medicine to your wife, so better to have this...or if you still have any doubt, you can go for an ultrasound to check the growth and position of the baby...if the growth is normal so no need to take the medicine.....

Answer: Your diabetes should be under control your fasting should be approx 90 and your postprandial should be below 140 your blood pressure is very normal right now but still you can continue your medications of blood pressure if your doctor has recommended so. about the amniotic fluid level 12 is still considered a good number do not worry below 8 is critical and IV Fluids are required but in your case I will recommend you to start drinking 3 litres of water now on everyday because you have roughly around 2-3 weeks only so it is very important that you drink 3 glasses of milk 3 glasses of coconut water. and your water intake should be high eat more of fruits and juices avoid sugar in them since you have diabetes should avoid sweet fruits that raise GI very fast such as grapes custard apple kishmish Kaju Chiku this is a very high sugar fix are very high in glycemic index and they should be avoided out for fruits which are low in joy such as apple papaya peach guava Pear pomegranate Cherry etcetera
