So your gynecologist has confirmed that you about to become a mum? Heartiest congratulations! Life is never going to be the same, you can bet. Your eating habits, sleep patterns, even lifestyle undergoes a complete overhaul when you are pregnant. A lot of expectant mothers experience what is known as ‘special hungers’. Some develop a sudden and unprecedented craving for potatoes, noodles or just about anything while others develop a sweet tooth. That’s not so worrying as long as you don’t overdo it. You would need to watch out, though, for cravings having to do with inedible stiff like mortal, cement, or clay as these could harm your child in many more ways than you can imagine.
Make sure that your diet is rich in pulses, green vegetables and fresh fruits. Eat small meals throughout the day instead of settling for a couple of heavy meals. Do stay away from fatty foods during your pregnancy; go slow on foodstuff like chocolate and ice cream that are notoriously fat-rich. Also, drink plenty of water to protect yourself against constipation.
Take adequate rest by sleeping for eight hours at a stretch during the night and for two hours during the day. You are best advised to sleep on your back with your legs raised on a cushion. But if you prefer to sleep on the side, make sure that your upper leg rests on top of a cushion.
Following the aforementioned tips ensures the safe delivery of your baby. But what if your child were to fall seriously sick? No worries as your baby’s stem cells can now be stored. The blood is taken from the umbilical cord and then frozen and stored in a laboratory. You would have insured your child’s health for life.
