Where’s My Food Going?

A regular pregnant woman would normally eat for two, she’d have an appetite to eat whatever is infront of her … or is it only me? The thing is, I’ve been eating for 4 ever since I got into my 7th month. I’ve gained 11kgs so far, average weight gain during pregnancy which is good. But the thing is, I’ve been told that the baby is kinda small/tiny.

On the 20th of July, more than one month ago, the doctor told me my baby weighed 1.400 kg, which was good. 2 weeks ago (that’s after 1 month). The Dr. told me my baby weighed 1.600 kg, & that it should have been between 1.800 & 2 kgs. I almost had a heart attack, the Dr. saw how worried i was, but ย she wasn’t. She smiled at me & told me not to worry, many babies are born small & healthy. She advised me to eat more protein & sleep either on my right or left side. I’m eating everything infront of me & I’m sure it has alot of protein, & i’ve been sleeping on my right & left side, I have no other option.

I’ve done my research on google & found out that my baby is in the safe side (El7mdellah).ย Baby2Seeย has a very informative article about baby weight, a chart that shows you if the baby is above or beneath average weight, mine wasn’t, but almost there y3ni. Come to think of it, it’s better to have a small baby than a huge one. (Check Pictures) ๐Ÿ™‚

So, I was wondering … Where’s all the food going? If it’s not in me, not in the baby, then where exactly?

    Just relax, the baby is fine, a baby usually beef’s up during 7 to 9 months of pregnancy,, and your 7th just started so you still have good couple of months to go.. dont panic

    • Im in the mid of my 8th month ๐Ÿ™‚ but tge doctor assured me again and told me that my baby’s weight is normal n i dont hv to worrt.

  2. I wouldn’t worry about it, sweets. You’re definitely within the normal range and if you keep doing what you’re doing things should be fine inshallah.

    And about the eating, I know that mothers begin to need a lot more energy during the last couple of months cause they’re usually the most strenuous for body. That’s because this is the time that the baby begins to really get a whooole lot bigger. So even if most of the weight isn’t going to the baby, its just your body compensating the energy levels that it needs.

    Bil salama inshallah! All the best, hun! ;*

    then dont worry sweets, whn the dr is sayin means she knows,, dont panic… the baby will gain 100 to 150 gms every week in ur ninth.and the smaller the baby is the easier to deliver, hence no issues.

  4. sheikha

    do check with your doctor about eating shell fish. It’s supposed to be harmful to the baby

  5. Allah esahel 3alaich babes hehe and well if its not going to the baby then it’s definitely going somewhere else or disappearing hehe yalla hanat not much is left and you will have your bundle of joy in your arms.
