Our expert says:
Congratulations on the progress of your pregnancy - not long to go now. I presume you are the same Kasandra who has been updating me on your pregnancy in the past? I am glad to hear that you are going to drink a nutritional shake with full cream milk twice a day and take additional vitamins and minerals, because for a lady who is now in her 3rd trimester your BMI of 23,2 is too low. It is good that you gained 9 kg, but if you remember that I said it is suggested that women who start their pregnancies underweight (your pre-prgnancy BMI = 19), should gain 0,5 kg per week, which equals 14 kg for 28 weeks - so 9 kg, is 5 kg too few. So take it easy, use your shake with full cream milk and try to eat additional food too.
Wishing you all the best for this last trimester.
