Your doctor’s just confirmed your pregnancy, heartiest congratulations! Pregnancy is a time for celebration and some amount of anxiety, especially if it’s the first time. Your lifestyle undergoes complete change, even for mundane things like eating and sleeping.
In the first few weeks most women develop a strong aversion to food. Going hungry, however, is inadvisable; you must keep your stomach full. Don’t snack on junk food even if the craving is very strong. Settle instead, for cereals, pulses, and fibers. A vitamin-rich diet is also strongly recommended. Get in touch with a dietitician if possible.
Most women stop exercising when pregnant. This can result in huge weight gain which might be difficult to get rid of after childbirth. Talk to your doctor about the kind of exercise you can do. Walking, which every doctor would advise, is one of the best forms of exercise and also good for the baby.
A major issue that pregnant women face is sleep. Sleeping at night, especially, is problematic for most women as they have frequently run to the bathroom. It is also nature’s way of readying you for your baby who will make you get up several times at times. Try and get a nap in the afternoon if you can. As you advance through your pregnancy you would be best advised to sleep facing your left side. This position is also recommended by doctors as being good for the baby.
Keep an eye on the bigger picture as the due date draws nearer. How do you ensure the wellness of your baby (and siblings) for life? Answer: Bank your baby’s umbilical cord at your nearest private bank. The umbilical cord is rich in stem cells which can be used to treat many serious disorders. It poses no health risk to the mother.Note: As a pregnant woman, you are specifically warned to seek medical advice prior to initiating any exercise program, diet, or treatment provided by Cryobanks.
