Top 10 Tips for a Healthy Pregnancy

10. Get Prepared

The first thing you will do is to visit your ob-gyne and to be safe during your pregnancy stages. Your ob-gyne will advise you on what foods you’ll need to eat to have a healthy pregnancy, the medicines you need to take and the things you need to avoid for your safety and the safety of your baby.

9. Don’t Overmedicate

Medication is very important during pregnancy, the medicines that your taking should be advised by your ob-gyne to avoid complications that will affect the baby during your pregnancy stages. Taking medicines that are not endorsed by your ob-gyne can cause defects in giving birth to your baby.

8. Eat Your Veggies

Your obstetrician will give you an advice on what fruits and vegetables that you need to eat. On your pregnancy stage, what you eat and drink is what your baby eats too, so you better eat nutritious foods like fruits and veggies to avoid any complication in giving birth to your baby.

7. Steer Clear of Dangerous Ingredients

During pregnancy stage, foods are limited. Nutritious foods are highly recommended by your obstetricians. If possible, before eating, you should first look at the ingredients if the food is healthy and if it will not affect the baby inside your womb. Avoid eating too many foods that are not in the prescription of your obstetrician.

6. Give in to Cravings

During pregnancy, you just can’t help to indulge into your food cravings. Cravings are not harmful to your body as long as the foods that you’re eating are nutritious. Just be sure that when you give in to cravings, you limit your food intake to avoid getting fat.

5. Keep Moving

To avoid labor pain, pregnant women are recommended to exercise every day. It will keep you healthy; reduce pregnancy complaints, turn your bad mood into good and can help you sleep better. Yoga, swimming and walking are some exercises that you can do while you’re pregnant.

4. Don’t Overdo it

Make yourself busy by doing things that can make your mind and hands busy to avoid too much thinking that can cause depression. Sometimes when you’re exerting too much effort into something or doing your chores, you feel dizzy so you better take a rest first. Then, if you’re feeling okay, you can now go back to your work.

3. Sleep Easy

In third trimester of your pregnancy, you’re sleep is not as comfortable as the first and second trimester. To avoid difficulty in sleeping, you should take a nap on your vacant hours for at least 20 minutes, which help you get a good sleep at night.

2. Calm Common Complaints

As your tummy grows, less common complaints during pregnancy is experienced. It is because of the progesterone that delays digestion. Exercising is also recommended to avoid muscle cramps and back pains that are common during pregnancy.

1. Zen, Baby

Too much thinking can lead to depression that can affect the health of the baby inside your tummy. Other pregnant women lead to a premature labor because of too much stress, which is not good for the health of both you and your baby. Always relax your body and mind to avoid the occurrence of stress and depression.
