How To Gain Fetal Weight At 31 Weeks?
Night … I am 31 weeks pregnant but the bbj is still 1.8 midwives recommend me to take ice cream. I have already consumed 3 days a day of ice cream 2 cups of 90ml. Does ice cream affect bbj?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
At 31 weeks gestation, the normal estimated fetal body weight is around 1500 grams or 1.5 kg. Therefore, your fetus's actual weight, including a little excessive. You should question again how your midwife measures your fetus's body weight (to find out if this is indeed an accurate method or not) and ask your midwife to refer you to an obstetrician if you suspect that there are certain things that are abnormal in your pregnancy or fetal development.
Ice cream consumption can indeed cause fetal weight gain, but consumption of ice cream alone will not be able to meet your nutritional needs or the baby in your womb. Therefore, even if your fetal weight is low, you are better advised to increase the amount of your meal (highly nutritious food). Consumption of high-calorie foods such as ice cream is not prohibited, but should not be used as the only source of calories to gain fetal weight (because the nutritional content in ice cream will not be sufficient for your and your baby's nutritional needs).
It's best if you don't consume high-calorie foods like ice cream or other sweets first. Consult with a gynecologist directly so that a more accurate ultrasound examination can be performed to determine the condition of your pregnancy and your baby (including to estimate your fetal weight).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
