Q: Hello,
I am 5 and a half months pregnant, I used to live in usa and my sister-in-laws used to take vitamins and other proteins and minerals. But now I live in Iraq and the doctors here arent as proffesional as they are in usa, so I would like some advice on what vitamins and pills I should take if they have it here. my sis-in-law takes some pills called gummies can you give me some information about that, also is it safe to have sex and how often. and I havent gotten fat I weigh about 115 lbs I havent gained much since my pregnancy, usually people get big but I seem to be the same, I would like to get a bit more fat gain some weight, my stomache isnt any bigger, why is that? also one more question is it safe for my child if I do sonogram,ultrasound, what is the limit on that. oh, and I am experiencing short breath.
