Weight:Doc scolded me yesterday ( Please suggest
2008-01-24
Name: Smrity I am 22 weeks pregnant. Yesterday I had my anamoly scan done. I also visited my doctor and she scolded me like anything. Reason: I was 52 Kgs before pregnancy and I gained 9 Kgs in 22 weeks. She says Baby is just 489 gm and rest is my fat. She asked me to exercise and eat healthy. However, i don' t eat much of oil or ghee. Yup, I eat rice in my lunch/dinner (once) and I also eat icecreams sometimes but I don' t eat junk food. I don' t think, my diet is so bad. I don' t get time to walk or exercise. I have to leave for office as soon as the house works get over and then sit at one place before comp for 8-9 hrs and then come back home. The Mumbai traffic takes so long that I only reach home by 9:00 PM and by then I am too tired to walk or do anything except have my supper.

Please suggest what can I do to reduce my weight???? And is it so serious. My doc said that if I keep gaining weight like this, I should' nt complaing if I have to go for C-section and she also said that I might end up having high BP or diabetes.
I am scared.....please advice....

yes it is actually more serious that what your doctor said.
You need to reduce weight and eat healthy. High BP< gestational diabetes, eclampsia are life threatening diseases.
You are gaining too much weight.

i agree what mm said. And i disagree with gauri. Pregnancy does not mean eat eat and only eat......you should check your weight. you should excercise. no excuse for that. or else your baby will have problems and you will land up with bp or diabetes. you can also have c-section. by the way, a pregnant women needs only 300 calories extra than non pregnant women. make sure you get that.

what you are thinking about losing weight, controlling weight i think you should throw this from your mind completely.
very importnat during pregnancy and after when you are feeding you must never think of losing weight. it will really effect your health. for my first preg i was 44kgs when i conceived but on my last visit iwas 62 kgs. you will be in problem if you dont eat when you feel hungry .and another thing your doctor shouldnt scare you or shout at you at all. i had changed 3 doctors b4 i settled for one where i delivered my baby . i hate doctors who dont know how to talk.
about diebetics then its heridity and if you are above 35 and please make this clear to your doctor right now that you would prefer normal delivery. i had told this staright to my doctor.
i know one thing take rest and eat whtever you want you feel like eating. and odnt get scared or take mental tension during pregnancy and even when you are bf..it affects milk production too. dont exercie i f you are too tired. if you dont eat you will feel weak u need so much of energy for delivery plus someitmes i have seen with my freinds cousins n it happedn with me too..after 8 and a half month i cudnt eat i use to feel so heavy whetever wight i gained it was tille 8.5 motnhs after that it was hardly few grams that time my doc use to scared me too u are not gaining weight...if you control now and later if same thing happens with you then it will really affect you baby. keep your mind clear from all the fears all the best do what you feel is right and listen to your body

Diabetes is not hereditary always and people as young as 15 can get it.
Smirty, your doctor is absolutely right, no need to change doctors. Control your diet properly. If you are obese, chances are that your baby will be overweight later on. Eat nutritious food. Dont be foolish enuff to think you can suffer from diabetes.
Your doctor will decide if you have normal or c-section, there are 100000 things that can go wrong.
