Weight gain: Well you can gain weight depending how late or how much you eat, but you are pregnant and your weight gain is likely because of that. That isn't too much for 36 weeks. ...Read more

Can i take CB-1 weight gain pills during pregnancy? im 4 weeks pregnant and i rellay want to gain weight ...!!!!!

Can i take CB-1 weight gain pills during pregnancy? im 4 weeks pregnant and i rellay want to gain weight ...!!!!!

Unwise: Simply because something is "natural" and "safe" does not mean it is either one during pregnancy. The various ingredients in CB-1 are for the most part untested in pregnancy (as most things are) so the cautious approach is to not take any chances and avoid it. Pregnancy does change your metabolism and if you are consuming enough calories you should gain weight without resorting to supplements.. ...Read more

Am 23 weeks 6 days pregnant. My baby's estimated weight is 621g.Is this an ideal weight or under weight?

Am 23 weeks 6 days pregnant. My baby's estimated weight is 621g.Is this an ideal weight or under weight?

Certainly fine: It is just an estimate. Just continue to get a good night sleep, eat healthy food 6 times a day to keep your blood sugar stable, relax and breathe and bring to your mind vividly positive experiences. In wintery weather you can do pretend skipping rope in the house as nice fun movement to keep your blood flowing. These things will optimize the growth of your baby. ...Read more

8 weeks old baby weights 4.35 kg. Was born 3.06kg. Didn't gain weight  from 7 to 8 weeks.  Should i worry?

A little: Babies gain weight every week at that age. If no weight is gained, one can return to the doctor's office to re-weigh the baby (sometimes there is a mistake in the weighing). The doctor will also want to know if there is any other change, such as in the baby's behavior, his eating, and his poops. ...Read more

My baby was born 6.7 pounds and now @ 7 weeks weights 9.3 pounds. Is that adequate weight gain?

My baby was born 6.7 pounds and now @ 7 weeks weights 9.3 pounds. Is that adequate weight gain?

Perfect!: Over the first couple of months, your baby's weight gain should average 15-30 grams a day (1/2 ounce to one ounce). I calculated your baby's gain and age of 7 weeks, so it is averaging 25 grams a day over that 7 weeks. That is fantasti and right on track! ...Read more

Safest surgery done to lose weight after accumulating 2 pregnancy weights.. I am 26 years, 120 kg, 165 CM height, breast feeding. Cant lose alone.?

All pretty safe: The bypass, band, and sleeve are all quite safe. For experienced surgeons, about as safe as taking out your appendix. It is best to think of the three procedures individually. Bypass ideal for bad diabetics and severe reflux. Sleeve is ideal for appetite reduction and reliable reduction of weight. Band is good for some patients who are pretty compliant with diet. All are quite safe. ...Read more
