How to increase the weight of foetus (which is underweight) during the last month of pregnancy

Advice on Weight Gain of Foetus 

Such a problem can only be remedied by an increase in the nutrition you give yourself and an improvement in your general state of health, because until a fetus is born it depends completely on the nutrition received through the umbilical chord that connects it to the mother in the womb. Therefore, any weight gain by you will also help your fetus gain weight. In order to gain weight you need to eat foods that are high in calories, as well as essential vitamins and minerals. Eating a large breakfast is important, and it should generally contain products that are high in protein, such as milk, eggs, peanut butter. Take small snacks between meals, foodstuffs like curd and dried fruits are a great source of protein, calcium and minerals. Finally, consume foods that are high in natural fats and proteins on a regular basis during the course of the last month.

Other factors that are known to affect the weight of the fetus include smoking, alcohol, and other drugs. These should ideally be stopped right from the start of the pregnancy, but it is not too late to do so even now. If you still have problems gaining weight it is advisable to consult your doctor as they may be other underlying problems that could complicate your pregnancy or compromise your infant's health.
