Hi, welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
You are an Indian most probably bengalee.
You are talking about pregnancy in 17 years of age in internet?
SHame of you.
IT is illegal to get married before the age of 18 years in case of female..
And inthis case as an indian following government rule We will not provide any information.
Try other places.
And one more thing, in HCM, no unscientific unreliable unmedical answer is given.

Hi ,
Welcome to HCM
A big NO NO NO for teenage pregnancy i.e. 17 years girl , not physically orphycologically mature to have a healthy pregnancy . There are added complications.
Regular wight gain , total 12 -13 kg during pregnancy is a sign of healthy pregnancy.
Freguent small meals every 2 hours ,with lot of green vegetables milk, at least a bowel full of lentils,fresh and seasonal fruits are necessary.
Its necessary to undergo periodic medical checkup that is booked case at least have basic investigations,and 4 visits as adviced by WHO.
These are some advices and I have tried go give answers to your quary.

Satyaji ,
I don't know weather your are asking this question for your daughter or girlfriend but 17 year is not an age for girl to carry such responsibility of being mother . As per our government standard 18 year is particular age for a girl to marry and after this age she can think for pregnancy .
Please don't ask this type of questions on HCM .
