Normal total weight gain throughout pregnancy is 9-10 kg. So don't worry about it. Have regular healthy foods with lots of vegetables, fruits and milk.

5 Ways to Overcome Feelings of Neediness

5 Ways to Overcome Feelings of Neediness

Man is different from the other species in that we are social beings. One of the main differentiators is our constant need to 'connect' with our fellow beings. Be it family or friends or society at large, we constantly need to be connected to our near and dear ones and want attention, affection, and assurance.

We need to respect this basic desire and appreciate that there is nothing wrong in feeling needed. Problems arise when this feeling to be needed gets excessive. There is a significant constant demand from the needy person, especially from those who are close to them.

Some cases where neediness is demonstrated are in new relationships. In the beginning, there is a great urge to please and therefore a greater focus on interacting with them. There is a fear of losing attention, there is insatiable excessive demand for attention - be it pleas, accusations, or demands - so as to not feel abandoned and deserted. Neediness is also quite evident in people with depression. Again, an attempt to not be abandoned by their near and dear ones.

By making a conscious effort, the neediness can be reduced, thereby making the relationships smoother and less painful to both the parties involved. As the saying goes - 'acknowledging the problem is half the problem solved'. Needy people should realize or accept if told that there is an issue and make a conscious effort to work on reducing neediness.

1. Divert attention - As simple as it might sound, it is equally effective. Indulge in whatever interests you - exercise, meditation, dance, sing, etc. The idea is to divert attention so that the urge to feel needy and act on that instinct is reduced. This reduces the fear of being lonely and works magic. The busier you get, the less bored you are. As they say, be alone but not lonely.

2. Clarity in communication - One of the intricacies of neediness is making unclear demands. Sadly, quite often, the person does not know what he wants, and so are the demands or requests which are equally unclear. Once you are aware that your neediness is making you do this, make an effort to clearly communicate what you actually want. This reduces the stress on both the parties involved and leads to a happier engagement.

3. Clarity in relationships - Take a step back and see if your neediness is affecting any major relationships. If yes, revisit and clarify. Make an attempt and reestablish the relationships. If it is your truly near and dear ones, they will be very forthcoming and understanding.

4. Move on - In cases where your neediness has affected another person, be wise to accept their wishes and not be more 'needy' or clingy. This acceptance will make way for a lot of healthier relationships as you learn to deal with accepting your issues.

5. Socialize - Use your hobbies to make more friends and socialize more. Having more people to interact with reduces your need to be accepted by the same people. You have more people to rely on and might make more friends for keeps.

These are some simple ways to reduce neediness on others, but as mentioned, the first step is to accept and then work on ways to reduce it.

You should get your ultrasonography done. Also check for your thyroid profile. If nothing abnormal, you can take a course of contraceptive pills daily one starting from 5th day of menses for 21 days for 3 months. That may regularise your cycle. Even if it doesn't, you can have hormonal essay done.

Have intercourse between d10-d16 of your periods on alternate days if you have regular cycles. Try for 3 months. If you don't conceive in 3 months then go for infertility evaluation.

Usually investigations for infertility are done after a year of not having issue in spite of unprotected intercourse, especially when both of you are young and have no other specific problem.

Hello. You haven't mentioned about whether you are breast-feeding your child? Is it your first child? Patience and communication with your partner are very important. Depending on your plans for future pregnancy, there are a number of birth control (contraceptive methods) available. Don’t forget to protect yourself from pregnancy until you are ready for another child, as well as using condoms for infection protection if this is a newer relationship. Speak to your health care provider about any questions specific to your situation. Below is a list pointing out the special considerations in the postpartum period. Oral contraceptive pill (OCP) Can be started at 3 weeks if not breastfeeding The combined pill (estrogen + a progestin) can decrease breast milk production so should not be started until at least 6 weeks postpartum. The Progestin-Only Pill does not affect milk supply and can be used during breastfeeding. When combined with the decreased fertility of breastfeeding, it makes a great choice for breastfeeding Moms. Contraceptive Patch or Vaginal Ring Similar to the combined OCP; start at 3 weeks if not breastfeeding or 6 + weeks if breastfeeding Injection Depo-Provera™ One shot every 12 weeks Can be given immediately postpartum regardless of breastfeeding No known effects on breast milk or infant ingestion of the hormone Intrauterine Device or Intrauterine System Inserted into uterus by a doctor more than 6 weeks after delivery Reliable, long-term birth control for up to 5 years but can be removed at any time The hormonal intrauterine system is as effective as tubal ligation Barrier Methods Hormone-free, only needed when you are actually having sex Condoms can be used anytime, and are commonly used temporarily while breastfeeding or to space out babies Use non-spermicidal condoms with lots of extra water-based lubricant to avoid vaginal irritation Diaphragms and cervical caps need to be re-fitted at 6 weeks postpartum Emergency Contraception Emergency Contraception (EC) pills are effective up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse but best if used within the first 24-48 hours. Emergency IUD is available up to 7 days after unprotected intercourse Sterilization Female sterilization = tubal ligation Permanent; only for couples who are absolutely sure their family is complete Abdominal surgery Can be performed the day after delivery while still in hospital through a 2 – 3 cm incision at the belly button Or, laparoscopically through one or 2 small incisions after 6 weeks Or hysteroscopically, where two small coils are placed in the openings of the tubes into the uterus Male sterilization = vasectomy Permanent; only for couples who are absolutely sure their family is complete An outpatient procedure Less risk and more effective than tubal ligation

These could be signs of vaginal infection or local injury. If symptoms don't settle in a week's time it is best she consults a doctor.
