  • It is not to common, but it just means the babys not getting as much nutrients as she noramlly would, but you can have a healthy perfectly normal baby. The dr is just taking extra measures of caution.

  • Take prenatal vitamins or drink some ensure. I think there is ensure for pregnant women. I also eat cereal in the middle of the night, mini wheats, yumm!!! Then sometimes in the middle of the day I"ll eat another small bowl and so maybe three times a day I eat cereal, not big bowls and thinking thats why my babies are always big, lol.
