Hi doctor,

I am 32 weeks pregnant. My doctor suggested me to take complete bed rest as baby is very low down to the uterus. My problem is, I am unable to eat anything due to nausea and indigestion as there is no physical activity. I am losing weight and suffering from anemia and on medication for these. My hemoglobin is 9 g/dL and I weigh 54 kg. Currently, I am taking capsule Dompan SR, Ecosprin 75 mg and Susten SR 300 mg once a day, tablet Corcium twice a day and Depura vitamin D every 15 days. I am non-vegetarian. Please suggest me a nutrient-rich diet plan. Thank you.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • In your pregnancy, you are in third trimester. You can eat almost all good nutritive value oriented foods except few and be aware of side effects of medicines without physician advice.
  • For your loss of appetite and indigestion problem, you should take soft, semi-solid, low oil and less spices meals. Take vegetable soup and homemade stew twice a day with less oil and less salt.
  • Take folic acid, vitamin E and vitamin C rich vegetables and fruits in midmorning and midafternoon.
  • Citrus fruits like lemon, orange, guava, papaya, pears and berries are good. Avocados, greens, spinach, beetroot, carrot, gourd family vegetables are very helpful for making mixed vegetarian dishes.
  • Do not eat gravy or rich curry, but make simple food preparation.
  • Avoid meat, chicken curry, etc. Egg, pulses, sprouts, cereals and whole wheat all fiber rich foods are good.
  • I will give you a good diet plan at the earliest. Take care.
