Our expert says:
No it is not safe to take laxatives. You can use Duphalac if you are constipated. You need to eat properly to feed the baby and should pick up about 12 kg in the next 9 months if you want a healthy baby. You need to pick up 1 kg per month for the first 5 months, and then about 1.5 to 2 kg per month for the next 4 months. You lose all of this after the birth of the baby, as this is due to the placenta, increased blood, baby and amniotic fluid. If you continue eating the way you are now, you will not only develop severe nutritional deficiencies but will also have an abnormal baby, as they can't develop properly if they don't get in all the right vitamins, proteien, and enough calories.
