Question: Iam on 14th week and my BMI is already 37.. Does that effect my baby? Uam worried plz suggest
Answer: Hi dear,
By gaining too much weight while pregnant can raise your risk for birth complications like c section delivery and premature birth. And even if you start pregnancy overweight or obese sticking to the recommended range of weight gain can significantly reduce your risk of health problems like diabetes. I can understand how difficult it could get to reduce weight. But reduce or gain it in a healthy way.try the following tips:
1- starting the pregnancy at healthy weight,which you have already done it .so good job!
2- eat in moderation and more frequently.it would help you check your sugar and also increase metabolism.
3- eat complex carbs.like oats,brown rice, wholewheat and quinoa.they digest slow and keep you full for longer time
4-keep moving.include light exercises,like walking and swimming in your daily routine.it not only would check on your weight but also ensure flexiblity
5-plenty fluids.drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water to keep you hydrated and flush out toxins.
Donot force yourself to starve and crash diet.it would harm you and your growing baby. Weight would increase,as your body's hormones and water retention increases. Amniotic fluid also adds on. So donot worry much,post deliverey the weight would go and slowly through breastfeeding and healthy life style you can get back your pre pregnancy weight .your BMI should be in between 18-25.
Question: Iam 9 weeks pregnant and I had intercourse. Is that effect my baby? Iam really worried
Answer: Hello! Unless your health care provider advises you otherwise, sex during pregnancy is safe for both you and your baby. The baby is protected by the amniotic fluid in the womb, by your abdomen, and by the mucus plug which seals your cervix and helps guard against infections.
Question: Is thyroid effect the baby? Iam 8 weeks pregnant Iam having thyroid I already consulted with doctor Iam taking medicines.my mai question is it is effect on baby?
Answer: Hi dear,
Thyroid is an important gland for overall function of our body.during pregnancy it's requirements increases.usually the normal level is 0.4 - 5.5, but pregnant mothers should maintain it below 3. However the new recommendations for tsh levels in pregnancy are the following:
First trimester: less than 2.5
Second trimester: 0.2-3.0
Third trimester: 0.3-3.0.
Dosage often requires fine-tuning, so continue to check TSH every 4 weeks during the first half of pregnancy.but if you have started the medication,no need to worry at all .I had thyroid during pregnancy,and had no issue at all.
