Answer: Following diet may help you in babies weight gain.
1. Milk And Other Milk Products:
Include foods such as whole milk or skimmed milk, yogurt, buttermilk, cheese, cottage cheese (paneer). All these food items are rich sources protein, calcium, and vitamin B12.
2. Pulses, Dals, Cereals, Nuts And Whole Grains:
If you are not a meat eater, include pulses, dals, cereals, nuts and whole grains in your everyday diet to make up for your body’s requirement of protein. If you are a vegetarian, you will need about 45 gm of nuts each day, as well as about a two-third cup of pulses on a daily basis.
3. Fruits And Vegetables:
Include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables in your everyday diet as it will help you gain your body’s required amount of fiber, vitamins and minerals. Make sure you have about five servings of each on a daily basis.
4. Fish, Meat, And Poultry:
If you eat meat and fish, make sure you include them in your everyday diet as well, as they will provide your body with the required amount of concentrated proteins.
While you are pregnant, you will need additional liquids to make sure that you are hydrated all the time. Drink as much water and liquids as you can through the day. You can simply have clean and filtered water throughout the day, or sip on infused water with fresh fruits. Avoid going for packaged juices as they are very high in their sweet content.
Eating fats will help your body get the energy it needs to help you support the growing baby as well as prepare your body for the delivery. Vegetable oil is a good source of fat as it has unsaturated fats. Butter and ghee (clarified butter) contain a lot of saturated fats, and hence you should have them in small amounts only.
Question: I am 32+5 days pregnant but my usg doppler is showing 33+5 days gestational age.. Why?
Answer: Hello dear, such differences are common... because gestational age on the basis of LMP date may not be entirely accurate if you don't have a 28 day cycle or have irregular periods...it also doesn't take into consideration the actual day you conceived, when sperm met egg, etc...so gestational age according to ultra sound is more accurate as it measures the baby's growth... and decides the week of pregnancy...
Question: Hello Dr...i m 21 weeks pregnant but still i didn't feel the movement of my baby?why this happen
And when i feel the movment of baby?
Answer: Hi, as it is your 1st pregnancy, you may mis understand movements to gas bubble or flutters.You should feel your baby's first movements, called "quickening," between weeks 16 and 25 of your pregnancy. If this is your first pregnancy, you may not feel your baby move until closer to 25 weeks. By the second pregnancy, some women start to feel movements as early as 13 weeks.
