Eat a balanced and nutrition rich diet. Try to keep your diet as natural as possible with loads of fresh fruits and vegetables. Also include whole grains, proteins and complex carbohydrates to your meals.Take your prenatal vitamins regularly. It compensates for any gaps in your nutrition intake and acts as a healthy supplement for your and your baby’s healthInclude dry fruits and nuts in your diet as they have healthy fatsEnsure you get enough rest during the day and the night. Resting will give your body a chance to refresh itself. Over-exerting yourself puts a pressure on both you and the fetus. So try to catch a day time nap and ensure you get at least 8 hours of sleep in the nightStay relaxed and positive at all times. When you are over anxious, you tend to under-eat (thereby not giving your body and the fetus enough nutrients) or overeat (mostly wrong and unhealthy food choices)Keep yourself always hydrated with plain drinking water. Dehydration during pregnancy can cause many complications like headaches, acidity, indigestion, heartburn etc.If you are worried about your baby’s weight, talk to your gynecologist and understand how often you want to keep track of it. Usually doctors do not recommend ultrasound scans unless necessaryDiscuss with your doctor if you need to take any extra supplements to increase fetal weight
However, the point here is that it is the mother’s weight that determines fetal weight. If the mother does not gain enough weight, the fetus will accordingly be small.
