Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Avoid doing any heavy work specially by bending forwards. Keep your feet on two pillows at night while sleeping. Watch for daily baby movements. If you feel they are less than 12 in 12 hours then you must see your doctor. Take high protein diet and rest in left lateral position.

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
