Hey, please take proper bed rest. No exertion and no lifting anything heavy. Stay in touch with your doc and follow her advice at every step. Do not miss any medicine if she has recommended.; Your doc will call you for regular scans and tests. Eat light but healthy meals. Most importantly stay positive and calm. Take care and good luck 👍

What is your body weight and height rekha??

Since it is a triplet pregnancy conceived thru ivf..ur doc will guide u according to ur medical history. U may be given medicines to sustain all three or any other thing ( ur doc is the best person guide u)
Stay stress free, drink lots of fluid and eat healthy protein and fiber rich diet. Multiple pregnancies are also like other single pregnancies...just u need to take care. Take lot of rest and dont exert urself emotionally or physically.
Best of luck !

Hey congrats rekha! Triplets is triple joy. Pls tc of urself! All will be fine.

Follow your doctor to the T. And be on bed rest..

My weight is 56 kg and height is 5'3"

Thanks everyone for your positive reply

For protein what can I take in veg

Okay,,,,
Hope your doc has started with supplements and hormonal supports and make sure to get routine investigations especially NTscan and markers.. rest more and avoid any sort of physical exertions like lifting heavy objects, climbing stairs long standing or walking.. always keep yourself hydrated and check your cervicle length in every scan.. dont forget to take personal contact no of your doctor..

Paneer, soy are good source of protein...but u may be askd to have threptin biscuits or proteinex

Actually this is my first pregnancy and I don't understand all these things like cervical length

Cheese paneer soya, lentils, pulses, tofus, nuts

Which nuts can be taken as some have hot potency

Soaked almonds, pista, walnuts

Please avoid climbing stairs, squats, heavy work. Take proper rest and do not exert yourself. Eat healthy food and avoid junk and spicy food. Rest follow your doc instruction. You will be fine.

Ok thanks Dr Shilpitha
