Follow These Tips To Have A Healthy Pregnancy
When you are pregnant, it is arguably the most natural thing in life. However, it can be frightening and confusing as well for a mom-to-be. Your body is set to go through changes unlike anything else you will ever experience. Similar changes are to be expected in your entire life. But, there are many things that can be done to help out both pregnant women and their partners. Consider these suggestions as a start

Get prenatal vitamins from your doctor or over the counter and make sure you take them on a regular basis. A good prenatal vitamin will take care of the needs of both you and your new baby. Make sure that your vitamin contains 0.4 mgs of folic acid for optimum brain development

Make sure the water you're drinking during your pregnancy is safe. Tap water may contain fluoride, percholate, and lead, while bottled water may contain the same impurities as well as other chemicals such as BPA. Instead, invest in a tap water filter, and use a stainless steel or glass water bottle when out of the house

Use your friends and family for some down home advice. Pregnancy is one of those things that everyone is happy to give you their two cents about. You have to take it all with a grain of salt, but there will be nuggets in t here , that can help you have a much happier pregnancy

If your due date has came and gone and you're ready for your baby to come, give walking a shot. Walking is a way to help move your baby into the correct position to be born. Ask your partner to go with you. Steer clear of riskier methods, like contact exercise

Keep a food diary when pregnant. Keeping this type of record is a good way to ensure proper nutrition. You can also take it to go over with your doctor

Use alternative treatments for illnesses. Most OTC drugs contain harmful medicines that your unborn child can not handle. Look online for natural remedies that can relieve issues like constipation, nausea, and heartburn. Your doctor can also help

Do not use hot tubs or saunas while you are pregnant. These can overheat you and harm your baby. Common spa treatments often incorporate essential oils, which can cause complications and contractions early in pregnancy. Rosemary and juniper are a couple of scents that you should avoid

Do not let stretch marks stress you out, as they are completely unavoidable for many women. While applying cocoa butter and other creams may help to lessen the itching and irritation that comes along with rapid stretching of the skin, they cannot do much to prevent the marks themselves

When preparing for sleep while pregnant, set up a bedtime routine. Include activities that will relax you. Some relaxing activities are, drinking warm milk, reading a book or having a warm shower. When you are relaxed, it will be easier for you to fall asleep. Be sure that you have your routine set up so that you allow yourself enough time for sleep

Do not take any medications when you are pregnant until you have asked your doctor if it is okay. Depending on your pregnancy, certain medications can cause you or your baby serious medical problems. Many antidepressants need to be avoided as they could cause your child to be born with birth defects

Exercising in pregnancy is good for mom and baby. The benefits include decreased risk for gestational diabetes, less complaints of constipation and back pain and a quicker recovery from birth for mom. Stop exercising and see your doctor if you have signs, such as shortness of breath, dizziness, fluid leaking, uterine contractions or vaginal bleeding

Pregnant women should invest in a good sports bra. The added support will fight against aches and pains. Also, underwear that is tight around the waist should be avoided, as well. Not only will this be very uncomfortable, but it might also reduce the supply of oxygen to your baby

On balance, you should enjoy your pregnancy. Try these suggestions out to see if they work for you, and above all, enjoy your pregnancy!

If you get a headache when you are pregnant, make sure to stay away from aspirin. Aspirin has been proven to cause harm in both an expectant mother and baby. It is best to ask your doctor what medications are safe for you to use. Also, try relieving head pressure by using a cool compress

When you are going to get any type of testing done, make sure to let the doctor know that you are expecting a child. Many chemicals and processes that you come in contact with while you are pregnant can cause adverse harm to the child or complications with your pregnancy

Get prenatal vitamins from your doctor or over the counter and make sure you take them on a regular basis. A good prenatal vitamin will take care of the needs of both you and your new baby. Make sure that your vitamin contains 0.4 mgs of folic acid for optimum brain development

For pregnant women, make sure that you stretch your legs, before going to sleep every night. This is because many pregnant women get intense muscle cramps while they are sleeping, which could be easily prevented, if they stretch. Spend about 5 minutes flexing all of your muscles, before even climbing into bed

Being sleepy in the first trimester is very normal. Your energy level will probably plummet as that baby is growing in leaps and bounds. Make sure that you get lots of extra rest. Go to bed early and if you can change your schedule, wake up later. Don't be afraid to take a nap in the middle of the day either if you need it

Keeping a food diary will help you to remember to eat well and keep up with all the vitamins that you need. You will also be able to see if you are not feeling well, that there may be some type of food you are eating that may be triggering that reaction

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

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

If you have felt your baby moving around in your stomach, and then the movement stops for a few days, you should visit your doctor. Although this may mean nothing, there could be a problem with the baby that your doctor can help fix if taken care of in time

Your stomach will grow with your pregnancy, and you may notice a change in your stomach skin. When the belly grows, it may itch, which is perfectly normal. When looking for ways to soothe itchy skin, avoid excessively hot baths or showers. A hot bath or shower can actually produce more itching because excessively hot water will wash away essential oils that keep skin moist. Moisturize with a heavy cream, like petroleum jelly or cocoa butter. Remember to wear comfortable, loosely fitting apparel, and stop scratching

Keep your stress and anxiety as low as possible to ensure you sleep well at night. These two combined are the biggest things that keep you up at night at any time, but this is especially true during pregnancy. Talking about your problems or what's on your mind with a loved one or friend ensures your levels stay low, and you get one good night of sleep after another

Take some "me time" every once in a while. Once your baby is born, your life will dramatically change in a positive way, you will be busy caring for your newborn and not focusing on yourself. Go get that manicure, visit your best friends, or indulge in your favorite hobby. You'll be able to take off a few months to spend solely with your baby without feeling neglected

Nine months is a long time when you are pregnant with your first or second or even third child. Make the most of this time of intense and remarkable changes by remembering to practice the tips and tricks which you have just read. A healthy pregnancy is a perfect starting point for the journey to motherhood.
