Will having neem leaf affect fetus? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you today?
Hello, i am XXXXXXX I am 4 months pregnant. I am working in XXXXXXX Bangalore
Go ahead with your query.
Yesterday for Ugadi(Kannada new year), i had a neem leaf, which is a custom here.
will it affect the fetus?
ok.. i took only 1-2 leaf
I think1 or 2 leaves should not harm
Do not take any more of it.
Drnk lots of water to flush out the toxins
can you please tell me foods to avoid
yes. i did
Before consuming any medicine--herbal or allopathic...consult a doctor.
ok. i thought only papaya and sesame should be avoid. Neem i never knew.
Neem is used in many herbal preparations
Yes papaya can cause vomitting in some.
Some foods are considered hot and are to be avoided in pregnancy
These foods are part of herbal medicines again.
Just do not go outside your normal routine
do not take excess of anything.
Eat in moderation.
Take regular meals
or Eat something first thing in the morning before getting up from bed.
I think you will do fine.
Do you have any other question?
Then you have to eat a lot.
You have to eat for three people.
ok... i have a doubt here.
Maybe you have to take a high calorie snack at night.
Go ahead with your query.
i did NT scan on 12th week. Doc told the babies are back to back and are fraternal. The size is fine for both. But could measure only one NT.
Was the NT for kid fine?
as the other baby was turning other side
Most probably the other kid NT would be fine too.
she asked us to take the scan again 1 week later to measure for baby, so that it will change the position
but still that baby was turning other side and passed 15th week
Now gync told most probably the other kid NT would be fine too as the size is fine
so i wanted to confirm that
Yes it will be fine
As the factors that cause it would be same for the twins.
Usually it is felt around 5th month.
Since you have twins you may feel your kids earlier.
Mostly calcium and hanging the legs for a while helps.
and can i sleep tummy up side?
Does the pain become spasmodic?
Yes of course.
It is advised that you keep changing the position during sleep.
because if i sleep left and right only i get leg pain
Yes It has something to do with blood circulation.
Hang your legs a little bit and sleep.
if i sleep tummy upside. i dont leg pain
Yes you can take the position that is comfortable to you.
ok.. fine.. thanks
Just do not keep a position for a long time.
As you may get leg edema.
The main blood vessels to the legs pass just below the fetus.
Thus fetus should not hamper blood supply to the legs.
That the whole point.
Do you have any other doubt?
ok.. yes.. sometime i am able to feel pulse of the veins below lower abdomen
it will pulse faster and goes off after some time
How does it feel like?
Where exactly do you feel?
in pelvic area
under lower abdomen
I think it is because of the kids growing up.
Slowly they are trying to grow out of your pelvis.
Once they are outside you will stop feeling the pulse.
ok... last month it was worse. now feel better
As long as you are not having worrisome symptoms and kids do fine...I am not worried about it.
Yes I think they are growing out of your pelvis.
Any other doubts?
can doppler device harm fetus?
No it cannot harm fetus
ok.. i have anamoly scan scheduled on april 26th
Doppler is an ultrasound.
thanks for your time..
Hope I helped.
