Kind of upset dont know will the baby be alright
hi mummies, i'm 34 weeks and doc says baby is small at 1.9kg. she seems a little concerned. also, my blood pressure was around 130-140. so, she asked me to stay in hospital for 1 day to monitor my BP. it turned out normal. she has suspected pre-eclampsia. but, results show it's not. then, she sent me for another scan to check if blood flow to baby is normal. i'm waiting for results. but, i'm also very worried that baby doesn't fatten up in time for birth. what food can i eat to fatten my baby? do durians really work?
We can't tell exactly what to fatten up baby but since my girl's weight is on higher scale I can share with you what I usually eat. I often take the following: fresh soya milk w/o sugar, wholemeal bread goes with scramble egg n tomato, occasional fried rice n prata.
My baby weight 2.5kg in wk 35.
hi isy, thanks for your reply. yes, doc said my baby is small. i eat a lot more than you. i drink about 2-3 cups of milk everyday. i eat noodles/rice all 3 meals and i eat only wholemeal bread. dont know why my baby is still small.
thanks. but doc asked me to eat high calorie diet... im confused. let me try to load up on protein. do you think durians will help?
ok! im on a eggs, beef and durians diet! ive another appt next week..let's hope baby fattens up!
Good! I love birds nest
I dont't think there is an "ideal weight" for babies right? If gynae dont't voice concerns usually it's ok. Doesn't matter what weight so long baby is healthy. Worrying is bad for baby too.
Basic staple diet is milk, fish, eggs, vege, meat. I was actually advised that on top of calcium supplements if can drink milk better cos baby & mummy both need calcium for strong bones. The gynae's nurse told me 4 cups milk but I think she's crazy to even suggest 4 cups especially @ final trimester with bad heartburn (+ i dont't like that particular nurse)... :P
My baby suddenly put on 700g between 34-36th week.... So yes may have sudden growth spurt. She's already 3.35kg now at 38wks. I dont't have much appetite just try to eat 3 proper meals a day... My previous 2 pregnancies baby only 3kg at 40wks so everyone also blur dont know why this little girl is so "fat"!!
As for ideal weight, of coz we shouldnt be over concern as long as baby is healthy.
However here are some reading on fetal weight. Medscape: Medscape Access
Will change to cheese plus meat next week.
Hope my baby will weigh 2.3kg next sat!
Make a pregnancy ticker
yeah...that's what most mummies tell me ... as long as baby is healthy, it is fine. every baby is different... some are big and some as small.
me @ end of 38 wks now...and baby is weighing at 2.4~2.5kg...very small baby ..... gynae says if i dont give birth by next wkend, she will induce me...as she is concerned about my "small for date" baby..........
guess my son just doesn't like what i am eating..hehe... so skinny... he is active in my tummy, so i pray and hope he is just a small but healthy baby........
all the mummies, jia you !!!!
