Doctor :   Do you have any other query that I can assist you with?
User :   Yeah her stomach size is not so much when compared to other women, does the size also matter, does the size differ from different women, is it a problem..but the heart beat of the baby and other things seems normal
Doctor :   The size of the abdomen depends on various factors, the length of pregnancy, the growth of the fetus.
User :   People have suggested to use "Saffron with milk" does it produce more heat or is it good for the body...
Doctor :   If the ultrasound scans done during pregnancy is suggesting good growth of the fetus and no complications such as retarded growth, then you need not concern
Doctor :   with the external appearance.
User :   then scanning needs to be done right to know the growth of the baby
Doctor :   I am not aware of the medicinal quantity of saffron. A holistic doctor(Ayurveda doctor) will be able to give you better information regarding the advantages and uses of saffron.
User :   Sure Doctor thanks a lot...
Doctor :   Yes, regular scans during each trimester(3) will monitor the growth of the fetus.
