Q:

Good morning everyone!
Is it true if I sleep for two hours during day time baby will grow more!??? Ppl load me with so much advise and say don't sleep so much baby will grow rapidly then delivery will b difficult and all..
Past few weeks am feeling so sleepy n Drowsy..
Suggestions.



My dr. Suggest me to sleep 2 hrs at afternoon and 8 hrs at night.. I'm sleeping 1 hr at afternoon but my mom also said that not sleep more at afternoon 😕

Now what is ur baby weight?

Don't know vrushali.. My last scan was 32weeks n baby weight was close to 2kg. What about urs.

I even took opinion from other gyno doc (common frnds) they say the weight is normal. But my doc scolded me during 32weeks saying baby weight is higher n told to cut all healthy foods.. It's gonna b a month I stopped having rice not more than one fruit or nuts tender coconut nothing.. Only chapathi n three spoon of rice.. :( moreover I don't eat two hours once too.. May b gene plays a role.. In spite of all this if I feel tired n sleep saying baby will grow more. But Wen I don't get proper sleep am getting headache.

Great. U took scan at 37weeks?
Day before my doc told to check my fluid test and nst test..

Yess.. But i heared that weight of baby upto 3.5 kg then it is possible to be normal delivery. Nd now u should check that ur weight increasing stopped. Dr.. Said its normal.

That's nice :) fingers crossed.. Are you doing any particular exercises to induce labor? Did ur doc tell anything? When is ur actual due date!?

Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa

nope.. it is not true,, infact doctors advice to take rest in day time..

My due date is 4 aug plus or minus 1 week.. Actually i had curvical stitch. Next appointment dr. Removing stitch n then they will give me some exercises.. But now I'm walking daily at night 20 min. Shruthi Prem

OK dear vrushali.. :)

Please take proper rest. Baby will grow accordingly. Your sleep won't grow him but your healthy food and healthy mind will definitely make him grow in a better way. My baby's weight was 3.7 and I had a normal delivery. He wasn't obese but was healthy and I used to take rest in the afternoons.
