Pregnancy is a wonderful time in a woman’s life, but it can be very taxing and stressful as well. You will go through so much in that lunar nine months that you will want to be prepared at least a bit on what to expect. There are several books and online sources to help you achieve this goal.

If you have the problem of heartburn during pregnancy, you might want to consider chewing gum after you eat. When you chew gum, it will stimulate the salivary glands, and the saliva produced could help to neutralize the acid lessening the chances of developing heartburn and the discomfort it brings.

Decide if you want to use a Douala when giving birth. If you do, start talking to some that are local. Douala’s can help you have a shorter birth, and one that is more satisfying and safe then going the traditional route. Don’t let someone talk you into doing this, it needs to be 100% up to you.

Oral care is important for a healthy baby. You may not think of your teeth and gums as having any effect on a baby, but research has shown that mothers with gum disease are at a higher risk for miscarriage and preterm birth. It is best to see your dentist before you conceive, while you can still get X-rays and other treatments.

To help you sleep better while you are pregnant, plan your fluid intake around your smaller bladder capacity. Make sure you get enough water to drink during the day, but slow down after dinner and stop entirely before bedtime. This will help reduce the need to get up during the night to use the restroom.

Ask for help with some of your daily tasks. Things that involve heavy lifting, climbing and using chemicals should be avoided when you are pregnant. They can have a negative impact on both you and your unborn baby, so do not be shy about asking your partner or other family members for assistance.

Plan to tour the hospital or birthing facilities where you are going to give birth. This will give you the chance to have an active choice on where your child is born, and also lets you know the ins and outs of the program. Make sure you feel comfortable with where ever you choose.

It is very easy to see why any woman preparing for or already in the midst of pregnancy would want as much information about what to expect as she can get. You can find stories and real life information from women who have been there and how it affected their lives.
