    Thank you very much sir.your answer gave me positive hope. My height 5 inch and my weight 64.7kg.
  3. Good evening considering your height as 5feet your BMI is 27kg/sq meter which is on higher side you just try to reduce your wt slightly if possible since you are pregnant I won't advice you to go for dieting it might be due to normal wt.
  4. Contd..that increases during pregnancy.So don't worry just watch for swelling in legs and avoid salt,prickles,chats and street foods. Get yourself immunised against Tetanus if not done already.
    Best wishes.
