  1. Hello Dear,
    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.

    Back pain is common during pregnancy, but back pain particularly on the left side needs investigation. It might be due to wrong posture habit or due to Calcium & Vitamin D deficiency or it could be Renal Calculi. You should consult your gynecologist and get it checked.
    Regarding the health chart, you should follow a balanced and healthy diet ensuring you are getting proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. You should breakdown your 3 meals into 4-5 and avoid overeating. In addition to eating you should ensure you are taking ample fluids ( You might find this article useful: http://medimetry.com/2015/08/01/what-to-drink-during-pregnancy/ ). Consult a dietitian for health chart as it is variable for everyone and is decided based on the body structure, BMI, and other factors.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with a follow up question.
