    Pls Doctor, I’m in my third trimester and I’m not used to exercising. Anyway, recently I made time to climb the stairs of my five storey buiding 3 times and I did 10mins on treadmill, then danced for about 15mins. This was all in a day. Then I went for ante natal and was told that my blood volume reduced and I lost weight. So I stopped exercising. what type of exercise can I do to stay fit and not lose weight at least until d baby is born? Thanks a million.

      Be assured that it wasn’t that one day o exercise that made u lose weight or have low blood level. 30 minutes walk on the treadmill three to four times a day would be fine. How many kg have u gained so far?

    Thanks for the reply Doctor, I have a lot of questions, and I hope its not too much. firstly, if its not the exercise that made my blood go down, then what can it be? Secondly, I eat like three wraps/plates of moi-moi almost everyday, is it bad? I drink dano slim milk, but I was told it will make my baby tiny, is this true? I have more questions. That I’ll like to ask but this is it for now. Thanks Doc.

      It would be nice if you join the forum and ask the questions there, so it could help other people who have similar questions. I was trying to explain that one day of exercise can not make your blood level go down. Pregnant women are susceptible to low blood levels which is why they are given iron supplements from the 3rd month of Pregnancy. Are you taking your iron supplements? What kind of foods are you eating? Are you taking vegetables (especially ugwu)? also, moi moi is not bad, just dont eat too much food that is not neccesary. Dano slim will not make your baby tiny. Please do not take any medication or slimming drugs during pregnancy oh!!!! waiting for the questions. Please feel free to ask

    Good day Dr, please I need a food time table for a pregnant person. I have been working on my weight. When I started, I was weighing 104kg, but after I went down to 90kg, I took in. Now am afraid because I might gain all that weight back. Right now am weighing 92.6. Please I need a diet plan that can help me not to add unnecessary weight, though my husband is against that. Please I will really appreciate if It can be sent to my email. Thank you.
