Question:My wife spotted few drops of blood, she missed his regular period 15 January, and then we did pregnancy test it showed positive, but today she spotted few drops of blood. First she spotted whiteness in the morning and then in the evening blood drops. Is it ok or any worrying sign?
Answer: Vaginal bleeding during pregnancy is any discharge of blood from the vagina. It can happen anytime from conception (when the egg is fertilized) to the end of pregnancy. Lightbleeding, or spotting, during pregnancy is common, especially during the first trimester.
Implantation bleeding is a common cause of spotting early on in pregnancy. Implantation bleeding happens when the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine lining. This can trigger a few days of light bleeding or spotting.
Question:My wife has gained 16kg weight and she is just six months pregnant. Is it a sign of any problem.
Answer: If you were normal weight, doctors advise to gain 10-16 kg total.Less than this may mean a smaller baby and more may cause extra problems of gestational diabetes, joint pain, difficult labour.
If you are overweight, doctors may say gain max 10 kg
However, 2-3 kilos out of this range is ok I feel. Every woman is different, some may have lot of water retention for example which adds to kilos.
As u have already gained 16kg till 6 months then please stop taking sugar content from ur diet as it can cause problem in labour. Rest u talk to ur doctor how to manage ur weight gain
