Hw many times during pregnacy are u suppoe to go for an ultrasound to check the babies weight gain?

As needed: There is no specific recommendation for routine ultrasound exams during a normal pregnancy. However, most women are going to have at least one ultrasound at 18 to 21 weeks, the ideal time to evaluate for normal fetal structures. There will likely be additional sono's if there is a problem with the size of the uterus (abdominal measurements), gestational diabetes, elevated blood pressure, etc. ...Read more

No: Thalassemia minor means she is a carrier, and it not affect her weight or height.

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

1-2 ultrasounds help: An ultrasound study of fetal size knowing lmp helps. A baby is not considered to have growth restriction until very small (usually <10th %ile compared with others the same age). Having 2 ultrasounds can show the trend for fetal growth. Expectant mothers might want to take a look at my guides, including the one on ultrasound and this one on first pregnancy: https://www.Healthtap.Com/health_guide/27. ...Read more
