How To Make The Most Of Your Pregnancy

4 November 2011 One Comment

When you are expecting a child, it is one of the most wonderful times of your life. Still, pregnancy brings with it many questions, and each pregnancy is different. If you have questions or concerns about your pregnancy, this article can help you address them with some time-tested advice.

pregnant Before you even become pregnant, take a prenatal vitamin. Your baby begins developing its neural cord, which eventually turns into the brain and spinal cord, during the first trimester of pregnancy. Ensuring that you get the proper amount of folic acid, calcium and iron is essential even from the very beginning of your conception journey.

If you think that your water may have broken, do not be afraid to call your doctor to make sure. Many women have been in your situation and if your water did break, the baby has to be out within a specific amount of time in order to prevent infection.

It is important to exercise and stay fit during pregnancy. You should do low impact exercising like walking and yoga. This will make sure you stay your healthiest during pregnancy and also stay stress free. You should talk to your doctor before you decide to start exercising to make sure it’s safe.

Try to avoid Vitamin A as much as you can when pregnant. Vitamin A can cause severe damage to the embryo. Avoid foods that have this vitamin, including liver, mozzarella cheese, egg yolks and mangos. It is okay to have a little bit of these foods, but do not eat them daily.

Check out consignment shops and thrift stores for your maternity clothing.  You will only be wearing the clothes for a few months so why pay full price.  You will save money and help the environment by reducing the environmental effects that come from producing and shipping new clothes.

If you are pregnant with your first child, you should babysit for a friend with a young baby; this will give you an idea of what it is like to care for a newborn.  Also, this will help to make you feel a little more comfortable once your baby is born.

Don’t let your concerns or uncertainties about pregnancy distract you from the important job of making sure that you and your new baby stay as healthy as possible. By remembering what you’ve learned in this article, you can relieve your fears and just focus on giving your baby the best start possible.
