Healthy Pregnancy

 

Congratulations are in order: You're pregnant! This momentous occasion is full of smiles, laughter and pride in your bundle of joy. Whether it's your first child or your fifth, you want to make sure your baby is healthy and you take care of yourself during your pregnancy.

The nine months you're carrying your child are crucial to his or her well-being. A prenatal vitamin gives expectant mothers the nutrients she and her baby need to remain healthy. If you regularly exercised before becoming pregnant, feel free to continue your active lifestyle. If you're nervous about the stress of the exercise, talk to your doctor for reassurance.

It's common to feel unwell during pregnancy. Morning sickness, stomach pains, depression and cramps are just two of the symptoms that you may experience, but there are ways to minimize the feeling. Stick to foods that are easy on your stomach, be sure to remain as relaxed as possible and surround yourself with loved ones you can truly talk to. Although fainting and dizziness can also occur, being well-rested can reduce the symptoms you feel.

Toward the end of your pregnancy, you may begin to feel uncomfortable in your own skin. Ask your partner for a brief massage, focus on rest and utilize calming activities such as meditation and deep breathing to get through tough periods.

While pregnancy for some may seem like a walk in the park, most expectant mothers experience at least a few difficulties. Just know you're not alone and there are steps you can take to help.
