I am a 25 years old female.I am a too short 4'10 so I am pregnant .I want to  my baby will more highty .Plz what can I do now?

Not much: The projected final height of any new baby will be the average of her parents height + 5cm if male and -5cm if female. A short woman desiring tall offspring needs the father to be as tall as possible. If dad is also short, baby is likely to be so too. ...Read more

Hey...i am 17 years old and i am a female. Can u suggest me to do something to gain height. I am just 4`10...shorter than my mom.

Hard to say: Most women finish growing within 3 years of their first menses or 3 inches from that point.Both parents influence your height, and for you it would be estimated at the average of both,less 2.5 in. If you entered puberty late, you may grow some but most women finish by 16-17.A visit to the doc with testing could see if more could be done. ...Read more

Hi. I am 17 yrs old. I am 5.8 feet in height. I want to grow height. What food do I need to eat and how much quantity? Please let me know

Hi. I am 17 yrs old. I am 5.8 feet in height. I want to grow height. What food do I need to eat and how much quantity? Please let me know

Probably can't: At your age, you are unlikely to grow much more, and diet isn't going to impact it. 5'8" is fine; jet li and tom cruise aren't complaining. Shorter men are reported to age more slowly and live a bit longer. Because you're a man, you can look good simply by being physically fit; a trim, defined man of any height looks & feels better than a tall couch potato. Enjoy who you are. ...Read more

Hi, im viktoria. I just want to ask what am i going to do for my first pregnancy? I just want my baby to be very healthy as much as possible.

Nutrition and rest: The best thinhs you can do for your baby is to take care of yourself. If you are not already pregnant, talk to your OB doc before pregnancy about starting vitamin supplements with Folic Acid to prevent birth defects. If already pregnant, congrats! you are your baby's house for the nest year, so don't pollute it, keep it clean (ie don't smoke, drink, drugs), and make sure you get rest and exercise. ...Read more

I am a girl, 19 years old and my height is 5 feet 11 inches. I weigh 69 kg. I want to be 60 kg because i think i'm fat.Tell me what I should do?

You're kidding right: At 69 kg you are considered underweight compared to other 19 yo girls your age. You can download a growth chart from the center for disease control site and compare your height and weight on a growth chart. www.cdc.gov/growthcharts. If your doc has checked you out and believes it healthy for you to be leaner, seek out a counselor to define the best way to meet your goals. ...Read more
