n facing sum problems
jst wanted to knw if dese problm r normal
What kind of problems?
weight is 62
and BP is always low
i m suffering from mild pain in right lower abdomin
if i walk fast it increases
Are you taking any iron supplements?
yes i m
since d very beginning
Can you please tell me which one?
i think the name of the tablet is folfit
Ahh, ok Folvit is not an iron supplement
it has vitamin B in it. Thats all
i ll take dis up to my doc
i'll bet it will help
also i sumtimes face strong sensation in teeth while having icecream n sumthing sweet or cold
is it normal during pregnancy
That is dental sensitivity... you might have developed a cavity
that is not really due to the pregnancy
1 yr ago
but d sensation seems to b in a healthy tooth
i cant c any decAY in it
You won't see anything... I had the same problem.. I have really nice white teeth coz i use a bleaching toothpaste
but the cavities devlop in tiny ridges on th inner surface
Anyways. Get to a dentist and point out the tooth that is sensitive.. i will bet that there is a cavity there
No big deal nowadays.. Fillings are easy to put in and last a lifetime
is this tym ok for visiting a dentist
as its my 7th month
Sure, just tell the dentist you are pregnant and don't let them give you any sedation.
if they need to do something that requires sedation then you will have to wait awhile
so doc d apin in the belly is not related to an early/premature delievery?
i mean d pain
nope.. it is the fact that the baby is straining against the abdominal muscles.
what shd b d weight of the baby ryt now
weight for a healthy baby
2.5kg to 3.5 kgs is average
in 7th month??
for a person who is nutritionally healthy.. the number averages around 2.8 to 3.5kg
no this is at delivery
no no i m asking XXXXXXX the weight of the foetus
there are no real metrics for weight before birth.. that requires an ultrasound and depends on alot of different factors
at 7 th month
m a lean girl n i hv gained just 5-6 kgs
That's great! Average weight gain during entire pregnancy should be no more than 7
cn i deliver a healthy baby
the ones who gain more than that are running the risk of developing Gestational Diabetes
i m taking 2 pills every day
one folvit n another one for calcium dats all
no protein supplement n my diet is also very normal
low fats, moderate amt of nuts n seasonal veggies
m i doing thing correct
That's fine.. as long as you are having a healthy balanced diet.. no need for protein or fat supplementation
my feet are swollen n at times i feel dizzy
i think dats because of low haemoglobin
however my doc said its normal
nut i myself feel dat i shd have been 12+
as whn i conceived it was 13.3
The swelling of the feet is because the baby is resting against the veins that drain blood from the feet and causing venous congestion.. Unfortunately all i can reccomend is that you not lie down the right side and keep your feet elevated when you can
so i shd lie down on my left most of the tym?
whn i conceived the Hbit was 13.3
Hb was 13.3
now its 11.9
hw cn i help myself in dis
The baby has taken some of that from you.. you need to supplement iron.. hence the dexorange
there is another pill form of the same called Fefol
whr do u practise doctr
r u in delhi?
Nope. Bangalore. I practice at Fortis
thnk u for answering my queries
is dere nay thing dat u want to advice me
so dat i cn deliver a healthy baby
You need to look into the Hemoglobin issue! Make sure you get Iron supplementation.
Eat plenty of Dates and raisins as well as they have high iron content and mineral content
