The Joys Of Pregnancy – From Conception To Child Birth

Congratulations. You’ve just visited your GP who confirmed what you already suspected. You’re pregnant! Now comes the fun part – ensuring that you do everything you possibly can to stay fit and healthy for the next 8 and a bit months. Not just for your own health, but also for the health of your unborn child. You decide to read up on what you can expect as your pregnancy progresses – I found a great pregnancy week by week guide on Plant Supplement – and your enthusiasm begins to wane a bit. This pregnancy gig sounds like hard work!

The truth is that whilst some women sail through their pregnancy with few of the problems like morning sickness, lower back pain and various other pregnancy related ailments, many of us don’t. So yes, being pregnant can be a very long, hard nine months but there are any number of things you can do to look after yourself properly and help make it easier. Starting with what you eat. It’s always important for good health to ensure you’re eating a well-balanced diet but when you’re pregnant, this becomes doubly important. Because what you eat, or don’t eat, can have a direct impact on your baby. Remember too that your body will be supplying the baby first with what it needs and you’ll get the leftovers – make sure there are enough leftovers for you to stay in good health.

Pregnancy – What’s On And Off The Menu

Eating additional dairy foods is particularly important for a pregnant mum. Your baby needs the calcium for its developing bones and you need to think of your own bones and teeth as well. But not all dairy foods are good for you during pregnancy. Avoid products made from unpasteurized milk as well as cheeses that have a surface mould (brie, camembert etc), most of the blue cheeses and cheeses with a wax coating. Raw and partially cooked eggs are also off the menu due to the possibility of salmonella. As is raw or undercooked meat, seafood and poultry. Of course it goes without saying that junk food and caffeine are out! Onto the menu comes plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, particularly leafy greens and sweet potato. And fluids – plenty of water and fresh fruit juices.

Exercising During Pregnancy

It’s a fact that women who are fit and healthy have an easier time of the birthing process than those who aren’t. So, unless you’re under strict doctor’s orders to take it easy, you can and should keep yourself as fit as possible. It improves your circulation, keeps your energy levels high and helps you recover faster. Swimming is a great pregnancy exercise, as is walking and yoga. Some women even do a bit of weight training!

Enjoy your pregnancy and don’t forget to check out the Pregnancy – From Conception To Childbirth article on Planet Supplement as well as the informative pregnancy week-by-week guide I mentioned earlier.

  1. I rarely drop remarks, however i did a few searching and wound up here Health care
    Blog » The Joys Of Pregnancy – From Conception To Child Birth.
    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be simply me or does it give the impression like some
    of these responses appear like coming from brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are posting at other online social sites,
    I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to
    post. Would you make a list of every one of all your community pages like your
    twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
