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 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). Baby2See 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)
So, I was wondering … Where’s all the food going? If it’s not in me, not in the baby, then where exactly?
