Answer: Hi.. If you are under weight, you need to gain and maintain the consistency. After all, you are nurturing a life inside you.You need to include plenty of fruits and vegetables, protein, fibre and carbohydrates in your diet. Avoid unripe papaya and pineapple. Take folic acid and vitamin supplements if required, for your child healthy development and drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated.
