Baby Weight At 36 Weeks Gestation?
Good morning. I want to ask my wife is now 36 weeks pregnant and the plan is to have a ceaser on the 19th. From last night’s ultrasound, the baby’s weight is 2000 grams. Is that weight worth giving birth to and what to eat or drink to accelerate weight loss baby in the womb thank you good morning
Thank you Turimas for the question on the HealthReplies.com forum, pregnancy is a process that every mother must go through before experiencing a birth process. This pregnancy condition occurs due to the meeting of the father's sperm cell and the mother's egg cell during marital relations. Where this pregnancy lasts on average about 37-42 weeks before the occurrence of a birth. The normal weight of a newborn is in the range above 2500 grams. Meanwhile, babies who have a body weight below this value can be said to have low birth weight. Where in this condition can be caused by various factors such as:
- Inadequate maternal nutrition
- high maternal blood pressure
- have frequent pregnancies
- have a history of low birth weight before
- exposure to environmental pollution
- other conditions
Regarding food intake, a pregnant woman needs to meet various nutritional needs. Where these nutrients are carbohydrates such as rice, bread, wheat. Then the mother also needs to meet protein needs such as consuming milk, meat, eggs, etc. Vitamins, minerals, and fiber-rich foods such as vegetables and fruits are also necessary intakes for pregnant women, and additional supplements such as iron and folic acid are also needed. In addition, it can also increase the number of meals, by eating smaller portions but more often (up to 5-6 times a day).
