Pregnancy is a very joyous stage for women. But during this stage women experience some unavoidable cases of discomfort which completely depend upon individuals. Being a little bit aware of this, woman can enjoy safe and healthy pregnancy.
Control Morning Sickness
It is a common uncomfortable condition during pregnancy. To keep it in control, don’t keep your stomach empty. Periodically have some nutritious meals. No one will wonder if you always keep some foodstuffs by the bed, so you may eat them in the middle of night.
For the first three months some women can’t eat properly and experience bad smell in many foods, but this situation disappears after few months. You may avoid getting closer to those foods. To avoid morning sickness you may have lemon drops, chewing ginger or foodstuffs mainly made with lemon or ginger. Always drink plenty of liquids and water to maintain healthy pregnancy.
Avoid Spotting or Menstruation Like Discharges
Some women experience menses like discharge (not red but pinkish) at the early stage of pregnancy, for some it happens till seventh month. This is not menstruation; rather it comes out when your fetus reaches at the opening of your uterus. This is a dangerous situation and any time you may get abortion and critical health condition may arise.
When this situation arises immediately contact your doctor. Spotting occurs for unawareness. To avoid spotting totally bed rest is the solution. This may happen for excess labour, frequently having sex, taking antibiotics or many other unknown reasons. So be aware of this and have safe pregnancy.
Eat Food For Two
Now you are not alone, you baby is also there growing up in your womb. Eat plenty of foods enriched with vitamins and minerals. Fresh vegetables, seasonal fruits and milk are the sources of vitamins and minerals. Fat is necessary for absorbing some vitamins, also important for skin stretches and development of baby’s brain.
Avoid spicy, rich and fried foods. Drinking huge water and having least amount of salt may control your high blood pressure. You need more calories at this stage, approximately 300 calories everyday. Some women may have high blood sugar during pregnancy; if so, consult your doctor immediately.
Your Daily Life Habits
