So I'm 31 weeks pregnant and only gained about 20 pounds since I became pregnant. My doctor says I'm a little underweight and not gaining enough. I was and still am a a very petite woman. Pre - pregnancy weight was only 98 pounds. The doctor suggested drinking a full glass of whole milk a day to help with the weight gain. Are there any other ways to help me gain more?
I agree with Christina. Do what your doctor recommended and eat nutrient dense foods and your baby should be fine, especially if she is growing well. Try adding nuts to your diet, if you are not allergic, as they are high in protein and good fats.
The good news is the baby weight went away really fast for me. I was back to my pre-preg weight within 8wks an now I actually way less then I did before.
