advice for pregnant woman

Congratulations! For the first time in this article, I will give some advice and tips for easy management during pregnancy. Most importantly, as a as a first-time mom, you should know some essential tips. I have a lot of experience, so I will give useful tips one by one below.


1. Attitude

If the thought of having a baby is a little frightening, you’re not alone. Most parents who find themselves experiencing moments of incredible joy alternative to feelings of doubt shouldn’t be alarmed. After all, your entire family situation is about to undergo a dramatic change.


2. Health

Keeping yourself in good health during pregnancy (like all other times) is very important, both for you and your developing baby. Once your pregnancy is confirmed, you should visit your doctor once a month to check on your general health, blood pressure, and weight. During the final months of pregnancy, your visits should be more frequent.

Being pregnant does not mean you must curtail your normal activities. In fact, moderate activity will help you maintain your body in its best physical condition.


3. Sexual Relation

Your doctor will advise you about sexual relations during pregnancy. Intercourse is usually safe until the last six to eight weeks.


4. Exercise Relation

Moderate exercise under your doctor’s guidance can be beneficial during pregnancy since it contributes to overall muscle tone and good posture. Of course, each pregnancy is different, and therefore you should check with your doctor before engaging in any strenuous activity.

If you are employed, ask your doctor when it would be best to stop working. Generally, your health and progress during pregnancy will determine this. If you plan to return to work after your baby is born, ask your doctor how soon you can do so.

5. Rest and sleep.

As your pregnancy advances, you will tire more easily. It is important to get enough rest and avoid any strenuous activity, especially during the final months. Take the time to lie down or to rest with your feet up whenever possible. A regular nap in the afternoon is also a good idea. Try to get eight hours of sleep each night.


6. Bathing

Tub baths are permissible until the last two months of pregnancy, after which you should probably take showers or sponge baths. Your genital area should be cleansed gently, without the use of douches unless specifically recommended by your physician.


7. Drugs

During your pregnancy, especially during the first three months, try to avoid the use of any medication unless it has been prescribed by your doctor. The use of alcohol and cigarettes is also not recommended for pregnant women.


8. Drugs

Proper dental care is very important during pregnancy. Brush your teeth thoroughly after each meal, and continue to see your dentist regularly. Remember to inform your dentist that you are pregnant during your first visit.


9. Skin

During pregnancy, your body goes through some rather complex hormonal changes that can affect your overall physical appearance. Often, a problem complexion will clear up, although it is not unusual to develop very clear skin at some point during your pregnancy.



10. Hair

During pregnancy, dry hair may develop a shine and grow faster and thicker than before. On the other hand, some women made their hair excessively oily. After the birth of your baby, you may experience some hair loss. This is normal and is due to changing hormonal levels. New hair growth will occur within a few months.


11. Clothes

You should choose clothing that is loose, adjustable, and practical. Brassier should give your breasts firm support without constricting them or flattening the nipples. Round garters, belts, or other tight-fitting elastic garments should never be worn.


12. Shoes

Your feet are very important, and care and attention to your feet are most important throughout the whole duration of pregnancy. Your shoes should be low but not completely flat, and they should provide support and comfort.


13. Travel

If possible, try to avoid long trips, especially during the early and late months of pregnancy. If you must travel, it is advisable to take the most comfortable means available. If you travel by automobile, be sure that the driver and all other passengers always use safety belts, both lap belts and shoulder harnesses. For the protection of you and your baby, sit tall and place the lap belt as low as possible on your hips, under the baby.


14. Dreams

Most women dream more when they are pregnant than they are accustomed to. Although the exact reason for this is not known, it is probably associated with a change in sleeping pattern that results in lighter sleep and ‘waking dreams’ No importance should be attached to this phenomenon, and such dreams certainly have no profound meaning or significance.




15. Fresh Air

There are several advantages to breathing fresh air. Taking a short walk outside certainly does no harm, and if you have been sitting around most of the day, it certainly does quite a lot of good.


16. Packing your suitcase

If your baby is to be born in the hospital, you should have a suitcase packed and ready with all the items you will need during your stay. This should be prepared at the beginning of the ninth month or even sooner than that. You might want to take some of the following items with you to the hospital: nightgowns, slippers, nursing bras, sanitary belts and pads, garments, baby blankets, diapers, etc.
