Is an 8kg weight gain at 26 weeks ok? I started at 62 kg

Is an 8kg weight gain at 26 weeks ok? I started at 62 kg

Yes: It sounds like you are on track with normal weight gain. However, weight gain is less important than fetal growth and weight gain. The better question to ask your OB provider is, "Are my fundal heights appropriate and did my US show adequate growth?" There seems to be an obsession with weight gain in pregnancy and honestly many women gain too much. Keep up a healthy diet and congrats. ...Read more

I've had two pregnancies that ended in which both babies heart just stopped beating one at 23 weeks one at 27 weeks. Im 10wks pregnant now will this repeat?

Not necessarily: You most probably would have an another preterm baby, because the probability with having two prior preterm deliveries is getting higher. But it is not necessarily that the cause of preterm delivery would be the heart issues, unless you have a family history of it, or prior babies had the inherited heart diseases. You have to have a close follow up with your obstetrician anyway for that reason. ...Read more

My sister quit smoking weed at 23 weeks pregnant. Can the baby still test positive when born at 39 weeks?

24 weeks pregnant and haven't gained weight rather i've lost 2kg from my pre pregnancy weight, doctors says the baby is growing at normal rate. normal?

Yes: but make sure you eat correctly and avoid too much weight loss. Through the course of your pregnancy you will increase your weight. Please note that a growing baby needs lots of energy and if he/she does not have enough through the nutrients you give, he/she will resort to using your supplies.. so please eat healthy but enough for both of you. ...Read more
