User :   Ok
User :   I am 29 years of age
Doctor :   ok
User :   51.5kgs in weight, 5 feet 1 inch height, 15 weeks pregnant
Doctor :   ok
User :   I have had an abortion 6 months ago as no fetal heartbeat was detected at 8 weeks
Doctor :   ok
User :   So overall i am very nervous about the whole thing
User :   I just wanted to ask if there is a checklist of changes which are normal with each week
User :   so that i can feel a little assured
Doctor :   Ok, there is no need to be nervous.sometimes these things happen.
Doctor :   ok
User :   I have lost 5 kgs over the past 2 months, some people say its normal to lose weight upto first 4 months
User :   is it so
Doctor :   At about 5 week you can see heart beat in your scan.
User :   Also, nausea has come down but i still feel vomitish at times, is that normal too
Doctor :   During the starting months due to nausea you will loose weight.
User :   Till how long does nausea continue
Doctor :   But later by 5 month you will feel like eating and pick up weight.
Doctor :   By 5th month nausea will reduce
User :   Ok, i had heard it gets over by 12th week
User :   so was curious
User :   Also, when does one start showing, i mean which month the bump becomes visible
Doctor :   It varies person to person, so by 4 th to 5 th month you will be ok.
User :   Thanks
Doctor :   By again 5 month
Doctor :   That is when you will start gaining weight.
User :   There is one more query, my doctor has given Livogen for Iron and Calcimax for calcium tablets
Doctor :   ok.
User :   but i got muscle pain in my shoulder and ribs
User :   so another doctor said that iron may be leading to gastrites
User :   So i wanted to confirm if iron and calcium is to be taken before or after food
Doctor :   Normally we start folic acid and iron 3 months before conceiving and after 3 month of pregnancy
Doctor :   Because as i said there will be severe gastritis and added to the iron and calcium it will increase
Doctor :   SO you can take it after 3 rd month.
Doctor :   Till then try to compensate by drinking milk 4 to 5 glasses and green leafy vegetables twice daily.
User :   The doctor already asked to start the calcium and iron now and discontinue the folic acid after 12 weeks
Doctor :   If you feel acidity is not uch you can take now.
User :   so i wanted to know if calcium and iron should be taken pre or post food so that gastritis is not there
User :   ok
Doctor :   post dinner is better, absorbtion of drug will be less, but acidity will be reduced. Do not take iron tablets with milk.
User :   Ok
Doctor :   Do you have any more queries.
User :   Is there any other prescription for iron and calcium tablets because the ones i am taking right now are huge in size and difficult to swallow
Doctor :   You can take Fefol and shelcal
User :   Also any book which can act as a pregnancy guide
Doctor :   ok,the complete child birth book
User :   Thanks a lot madam
