Q:

I am almost nearing my due date but I have hardly gained any weight till now.. my weight dropped by 3 kgs in the 1st trimester and I have regained only 2 kgs in the last trimester..
Is there anything to worry? I have seen women gaining 7 to 10 kgs weight..that's y a bit concerned about my weight..
As far as my baby's weight is concerned, I think it's pretty decent.. 2.4 kgs currently..
I have got 2 doses of steroid injections for baby's lungs maturity 1 week back..my doc is planning c sec in next 10 to 15 days.. do I need to take more such injections? My doc asked me take 2 more this week and 2 more next week..but the doc at Govt hospital says they are unnecessary..
M so confused 😣

Hi Kritika if baby weight is good then don't worry about Ur weight gain yaar. All the best for Ur most awaited day dear.. as per injections docs r best to give advice.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hi,,,
Please take the two doses of injections again in next month.. and after that talk to your doctor if it is mandatory for third week doses also.. But dont skip next week doses.. it is very helpful in fetal lung maturity

Weight ke baare me mat socho.. i hardly gained 3 to 4 kgs extra.. my kiddo was healthy and weighed completely normal.. but she was a premature..

Dr. Payal M

Aim should be to carry till 38 weeks unless there is a need to deliver earlier.
As fetal weight gain happens much more in last few weeks.
Don't worry abt ur own weight.

As far as weight is concerned you should not worry Even i gained only 6 kgs till now and i am into 38th week.
My doctor said as far as your baby is gaining appropriate weight we should not be concerned regarding ours. . Take care dear 😘

Hi babys weight is fine...just follow doctors instructions and as advice given by shilpitha mam

Thank you all..but Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa I cannot wait till next month for more doses..baby has to be delivered after completion of 37th week in this month as my SGPT value in LFT test came to be high 114..

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Thats okay.. just ensure to take two more doses in next week and ask your doctor if next doses are mandatory or this much is enough..

KritiVika

Thanks doc..today I met my doc..he said he will give it on 11th again..he is monitoring in 3 days gap now...have been asked to repeat LFT again on 10th..
