pls reply..very worried

Sonali Shivlani Dr.Saloni Pahwa Dr. Payal M Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa Dr Nikhil Datar pls advise

Eggs will not cause pre term labor.
follow doctors instructions as far as movements are concerned.
you are right eating high protein foods will increase babys weight better. Combining high protein foods with iron rich foods will help with HB levels.
full cream milk not required.
ghee only for taste. all these things are fattening and not contributing to baby weight.

Sonali Shivlani mam any alteration to be made to my diet chart that i m supposed to follow??...i have 10 days left for usg..& if baby will be born with such low weight then what wud be the complications.

Which week of pregnancy is this ? baby does gain very rapidly in the last few weeks.

hiii don't worry about the weight  start taking protein x 2 teaspoon very day with milk ur target should be finish one box in a month and u will notice that ur baby is starts gaining weight and till ur 9 month he or she will be healthy. and to increase ur hb starts taking pomegranate fresh juice daily before 12pm 1 glass  and a pinch of chunna powder on it. the quantity of chunna is ek dana wheat ka and after a week u will go for the test again ur hb will me normal. and for backp pain do some exercise don't worry if u follow this after a month u n ur baby will be healthy bless u both take care

Hi, Please Don't worry dear.
Your diet plan looks absolutely fine. Baby gains maximum weight during last month. So relax and take rest as your doctor said.
-You can take protein rich food like Egg whites, Soya(very high protein content), milk.
- You can use hot water bag to ease pain.
- To increases hb take palak. Its a very good source of iron. You can have coriander chapati also.
Most importantly please be stress free😄

Deepali Soam(@myteenytot) ..soya chaap ki sbji or soya nutrela chunks??...& my mil is not allowing me to have egg😣

Deepali Soam(@myteenytot) Monika Shivanand how much qty of paneer in a day i should take...is 100 gm wud be sufficient?

Hey soya chunks you can take. It is full of protein.
You can grind it and add it to your regular dough.

100 gm is sufficient. but would prefer u protein x shake. m also taking this from ma 5th month. and ma mother also take that at her time. the doc. said ur baby will not be live we can save only one her 8th month is going on than doc recommend her protein x she asked her to drink 2 box of it the weight of the baby is 1.3kg than final ma brother comes but he is still weak bcoz doc said if u had start taken this protein in ur the 7th month than he would be healthy. now he is 22yrs old but very skinny. I think u should consult ur doc. and ask her for protein x. in ur diet. look everyone will come and give u there suggestion but the final.choice is only urs. this is my mother's story which I feel to tell u.

my dctr prescribed me Polyrich badam kesar powder for protein..i was taking it one time but now started 2 times

You do have a good eight weeks on hand.Consume the high protein diet.And keep positive.

Monika Shivanand whats was ur brother weight at the time.of birtb

Monika Shivanand i thought baby with 2 kg weight couldn't survive but after listening to u m quite relaxed now..if at ur mom's time everything was fine then surely now it will be as there are many advanced facilities now..thanks Monika Shivanand Sonali Shivlani Deepali Soam(@myteenytot) for ur valuable time

Anytime anon.....never stress yourself. Things will work for you. Just focus on your health. Enjoy & takecare😘
