  1. 1. Tips On How To Have A Healthy Pregnancy Finding out that you are going to have a baby is an amazing and overwhelming discovery. There may be a ton of questions racing through your mind as you have never experienced pregnancy before. Appointments, announcements, physical and emotional changes and preparations to your home are just some examples of all the things you now need to take care of. The following article will offer you some very helpful advice on how to take care of yourself, your baby and your life while you experience the amazing miracle of pregnancy. Having a baby? Do you plan on breastfeeding? Are you thinking about doing so publicly or are you looking to be more discreet. Nursing clothing can help you! Many maternity lines also carry "breastfeeding shirts." In other words, no one can really tell what you are doing. So you can tell what it looks like to others in public, try nursing at home looking in a mirror and making adjustments. Create a relaxing bedtime routine during pregnancy to get the best sleep that you can. A consistent evening routine will signal to your body that it is nearly time to sleep, ultimately making it easier to drift off. A warm shower or a shoulder massage are a couple of things you can do so soothe yourself. Before planning to get pregnant, see your doctor first. He or she can tell you about what changes you should make to have a healthy pregnancy. Preparing your body to deal with pregnancy is key in ensuring an experience that is safe and healthy. If conceiving is something you are attempting to do, then learn how to monitor and track your cycles. If you learn your cycle, it can help you find the best time to try and get pregnant. It will also help you pinpoint when you became pregnant so you can have a more accurate due date. Your OB/GYN or family doctor will recommend that you take a prenatal vitamin while you're pregnant. Be sure to take this everyday. They supplement your diet, boosting levels of vitamins you might not be getting due to morning sickness or a lack of appetite, which will give your baby all the nutrients they need to grow healthy and strong. Eat frequent small meals in order to calm your upset stomach. When your stomach has something inside it, it often feels a bit better. Try to keep the foods you do eat light and fresh. Produce and lean proteins are key. Avoid taking vitamin A when you are pregnant. Some studies have shown that Vitamin A may cause damage to a developing embryo. Do not consume any food that is abundant in vitamin A, such as mozzarella, egg yolks, mangoes and liver. Eat very small portions of these foods once in a while if you want to. Pregnant women should sleep on their left side during their third trimester. This position facilitates blood flow to your baby, as well as to your uterus and kidneys. You shouldn't sleep on your back because this is the absolute worst position for the blood flow. When you are decorating the nursery, take the proper safety precautions. Being around paint fumes while pregnant may not be the healthiest thing. Therefore, ensure that this room has proper ventilation, and keep the windows open. Ask your loved ones to pitch in so that you don't have to be in the room when the painting is taking place.
