Q:

hi, i am in 12th week and till now most of the time i am on rest as advised by the doctor because i feel very tired even on walking for 10 mins and feel abdominal pain most of the day if i am not resting.
i want to ask , will the situation be better for me from 4th month ?
And from few days i am feeling pain in my knees. Do i need some calcium or vitamin supplements ?

Tina here is response from our expert Sonali Shivlani

It is important to understand from your doctor why bed rest has been prescribed. Since you are feeling abdominal pain as well there is something which requires you to be more careful. Once you know the reasons we would be able to ascertain how things will progress in the following months. Most of the times pregnancy does tend to settle and be much easier from week sixteen onwards. Inactivity can cause more aches and discomforts and once your doctor permits exercise stretches and other prenatal exercises will surely help. Calcium and iron will be started from the fourth month so if there is a deficiency it will get taken care of.
