Despite having the responsibility to take care of the nutritional needs for your growing fetus, you do not have to eat for two people. All you need is 300 more calories in the second half of pregnancy and 500 more calories when you are breastfeeding.
Try and have 3 main meals and three snacks in a day to give you constant supply of energy. Cornflakes, fruits, Chilla, poha, sprouts and eggs make good snacks and have high nutrient value. Avoid overindulging in cereals like wheat and rice as these result in a high sugar surge followed by a sudden drop, making you lethargic and low in energy.
Include as many colors in your diet as possible; as veggies or fruits and you would not go deficient in any nutrient. For example- yellow color as in mango, ripe banana, pumpkin etc, red color as in tomatoes, water melon, pomegranate etc..
Avoid eating raw salads(unless at home where you are sure that the veggies have been washed nicely), uncooked meat like grilled stuff from outside, which could have remained partially cooked at the core and may cause infection. In parties, it is better to consume the fried stuff instead which ensures that all the germs have been killed.
Certain foods like unripe pineapple, raw papaya, and pineapple should not be consumed in large quantities in the first three months. Avoid belue cheese, sea water fish ( if not cooked properly) and canned food containing monosodium glutamate.
Pregnancy slows down the digestion, so eat your dinner early. Have 2-3 hours gap before dinner and sleep. If you feel hungry at bedtime, you can take a glass of milk or a small snack.
Stay physically active and do not overstuff yourself. A normal healthy person does not require any commercially available protein supplement powders, but if you feel your diet may be deficient or you do not have time to prepare healthy snacks, it is OK to include some supplements in your diet but guard against too much weight gain as these powders are usually high in calories and fat content.
It is OK to have all the stuff your mom lovingly prepares for you, but mind the portion size. After all, you are going to be pregnant only once or twice in your life.
Hi am 35th weeks pregnant now. I went check up after 13 days. But my weight didn't increase it show same weight. I worried that my baby weight didn't increase properly. I wanna to know weather my baby weight increased or not?

At what age menopause occurs in women. Because I think age nearer to menopause may leads to lose of interest in sexual intercourse.
Im 21 years old. Took mefiprestol for abortion on 4. Of nov. Im still bleeding g.ultra scanning showed no any retained products of conception. Im still bleeding. Do I need abortion.
Penis Health Primer: Signs of a Latex Allergy
When the savvy guy engages in any penetrative sexual activity, he does it the right way - by wearing a condom. Taking care to avoid sexually transmitted infections is a key component of excellent penis care, and most men are very astute in this regard. However, there are some cases where a man does the responsible thing, slips on a condom, and then pays a strange price later - the itching, burning, swelling, rashing and other symptoms that indicate a latex allergy. How can a man be expected to maintain a healthy penis if he can't use the protection necessary to ensure that good health? Here's what he needs to know.
What's a latex allergy?
Latex is a natural substance derived from the rubber tree. It is used in a huge variety of products, but some of the most well-known are medical gloves (used in all medical settings) as well as condoms. Because latex can be stretched incredibly thin but still retain the ability to stop even the smallest of germs from passing through, it makes sense that it's a perfect product to use for making barrier protections.
A latex allergy is just that - it's an allergy to latex. For some, this allergy is extremely severe and shows up the moment they allow latex to touch their skin. For others, it takes time and repeated exposure to develop an allergy. That's why some men can use latex condoms without problem for months or years, but then they suddenly develop the symptoms of a latex allergy. For some, the initial reaction to latex might not appear for 48 to 96 hours after exposure, so it makes sense that it might be tough to narrow it down to latex.
A latex allergy usually shows up with the same type of symptoms. These include a ring of rash near the base of the penis, where the condom was sealed tightly; a swollen and red penis tip, where the condom pressed during activity; raised blisters on the penis that might be itchy; swollen skin anywhere the condom touched, including fingers, hands and perhaps even thighs or the lips (if the condom came into contact with the mouth).
Those who suffer a severe reaction to latex might immediately have a runny nose and stinging eyes, as well as sneezing and other upper respiratory problems. They might suddenly find it tough to breathe or feel as though their chest is tight. Those who suffer a reaction like this should get to the hospital immediately, as these are the first signs of anaphylactic shock.
Treatment and prevention:
When a man has a confirmed latex allergy, he will be treated just as if the allergy is to anything else. This might include a course of steroid therapy. A doctor will run tests to make sure the latex allergy is the culprit, and will then counsel the patient on what he needs to do to avoid the problem in the future.
Of course, avoidance is often the best option for those with an allergy like this. That means a man will need to look for condoms that do not contain latex. Often known as "natural" condoms, there are some on the market that claim to be hypoallergenic. Other types of plastic protections, such as those made of polyurethane, often provide adequate protection without the worries that come along with the use of latex.
No matter a man's choice in condoms, he's doing the right thing by using them each time he has sex. He's also doing the right thing by reaching for a powerful penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). When used daily, a crème that contains vitamins C, D and B5, as well as vitamin A for odor control, can help keep his equipment healthy. Shea butter and vitamin E serve as a bonus of hydration that ensures healthy penis skin, no matter the type of condom a man chooses to use.
