    Default Not seeing dietician when recommended during pregnancy..

    4 heaped teaspoons of milo = 6mg iron, which is less than a quarter of your daily iron needs during pregnancy. I doubt you would eat 4 heaped teaspoons as it would be so dry without milk.

    There are much more healthier and efficient ways to get the recommended iron intake.

    I think it could be highly beneficial to you to see a dietician. Even if it is only once. Is the only reason your not going because it costs money?

    I honestly am not saying this to be hurtful. I believe you are in denial, that is putting your bubba at risk and you need a good hard dose of reality.

    You do not eat well. If you did you wouldn't be morbidly obese. You do not know about good nutrition. If you did you wouldn't be skipping breakfast, eating 8 slices of bread per day and singing the praises of milo.

    Time to swallow your pride, put your bubba first and see a dietician.

    Good luck.

    I agree with a pp, why wouldn't you put your and your baby's health first? It is certainly taking many years off your life, and I am sure you wish to see your son/daughter grow up, get married, have children etc.

    FWIW - my MIL is amazing, kind, giving and loving. I love her dearly. She is 53 and almost in a mobility scooter due to her severe weight issues. She is on masses of medication and in and out of hospital for knee and back operations as her body simply can't handle the weight. It is devastating to my husband and myself that our baby girl is going to have to grow up, fall in love with her grandma, and then see her buried when she will still be a child. How she will handle it I can't even imagine, let alone if it was her own mother..

    Being overweight is about more than how you look. Go see a dietician. You only get one life.

    The sandwiches are heated I have been told that is ok.. I know they are hot.. I have burnt myself on filling falling out.
    I snack on apples and tomatoes.


    I am not interested in if you think one would help me (cause I don't I know what I could do different) I want to know what the hospital will say if I refuse. Also I don't each much iron foods ATM so that is why I have milo.
    There is so much you could do differently but it's really up to you what you do. At least you are eating some healthy foods. I get really quite passionate about this topic so I'll try to contain myself lol! At the very least please try to have a healthy breakfast every day, it's so so so important!!! And hopefully you're taking pre-natal vitamins so bub is getting the essentials.

    I do think you're kidding yourself with the 'milo for iron' call.

    Dieticians are good at challenging food choices. I would look at it as an opportunity rather than 'what could they possibly tell me...'

    I'm sorry but i think a dietician would be good for you. You say you don't see what you could do different but there is a lot that could (and should) be changed tbh.
    Why not take an iron supplement (tablet or liquid) if you are low in iron? Makes more sense than milo, which is full of sugar, imo.

    I also mean this in a nice way but try drink water and give up white bread and sugar and milo etc because when your bubba is 6 months old and starts solids you are her role model , she will copy you , she will learn from you, if you can't eat properly odds are neither will she

    Well said. Lots of people who think they know about good nutrition don't.
    You are eating far too much bread and cheese. I wouldn't be surprised if you we're anemic or lacking many essential vitamins your baby needs. Saying you eat a salad isn't enough.

    Why do you think the hospital offered you this? Hospitals don't go round offering unnecessary services, they're busy enough as it is. They've obviously offered you this service cos you need it.
