Pregnant, have not gained weight. Suggestion? - Online Doctor Chats
how can I help you?
Actually, I needed some help with my eating plan
I am 28 and 17 weeks pregnant
I have not gained weight so far
What kind of eating plan are you looking at Ms XXXXXXX
Can you suggest something which will help me to reduce constipation, give me all nutritions I need
I could not drink milk since it triggers my nausea
First of all, you need to relax and not worry about weight gain much
You are just 17 weeks pregnant and during this time you will not gain much weight
Actually, in my first trimister, I had actually lost 5 kgs due to severe morning sickness, hence I was worried
now you will start gaining weight again
I will help you regarding planning a good diet
yes please I am looking for that
I want some eating plan which will provide me all nutrition I need and will help me with constipation and nausea.
The most important thing you should remember is that you require almost 1 and 1/2 times food (energy) than regular during your pregnancy
So whatever you eat, you should eat it more,
it is ideal to eat small amounts more frequently
And what all things I should eat?
You can eat all fruits,
eat normal foods
you should not hesitate to eat anything, there is nothing that needs to be avoided during pregnancy
yes, and what should be substitute for milk?
but, I agree that certain foods can make you feels nauseous
instead of milk you can eat yogurt
before pregnancy, I used to have it daily and now I can't even take it a small cup of it
It is alright
slowly that will become fine,
If you can tolerate dahi, buttermilk or lassi, you can have them as they also give you same fats and energy along with calcium
Okay, I will do that
Do you eat nonvegetarian foods?
in that case, eat lots of fresh green leafy vegetables
and lots of fresh fruits
you can eat everything
what type of foods do you like the most?
you can add Ghee to your foods
I am craving on all spicy foods these days
yes, ghee I am having
oh.. Spicy will upset your tummy and you will have reduced appetite
I wanted to ask, if jaggery - gud is allowed in pregnancy?
so reduce the spices a bit
sure, will do that
Jaggery is allowed,
Thats all I wanted to ask...
You helped a lot
Thank you very much for your valuable advice
In fact as I told earlier, there is nothing that is prohibited during pregnancy
you should eat everything and you should eat more that what you normally eat
yeah, but household ladies keep advising to avoid few things like these
I know what our old ladies advice,
I am happy to be help
I will follow your advice.
Thanks a lot and have a great day ahead.
