Early pregnancy care tips – Some good personal health measures to take during the first trimester

Early pregnancy care tips 😍

Here are good personal health measures to take during the first trimester:

What is the first trimester?

A pregnancy lasts for about 40 weeks. The weeks are grouped into three trimesters. The first trimester is the time in between fertilization of the egg by the sperm (conception) and week 12 of a pregnancy.

A woman’s body goes through many changes during the first 12 weeks of a pregnancy. Women often start to have concerns over:

what to eat

which types of prenatal tests they should consider

how much weight they might gain
how they can make sure their baby stays healthy
Understanding a pregnancy week by week can help you make informed decisions and prepare for the big changes that lie ahead.

How can I stay healthy during the first trimester?
It’s important for a woman to be aware of what to do and what to avoid while pregnant in order to take care of themselves and their developing baby.

What to do

Here are good personal health measures to take during the first trimester:

Take prenatal vitamins.
Exercise regularly.
Work out your pelvic floor by doing Kegel exercises.
Eat a diet high in fruits, vegetables, low-fat forms of protein, and fiber.
Drink lots of water.
Eat enough calories (about 300 calories more than normal).

What to avoid

These things should be avoided during the first trimester:

strenuous exercise or strength training that could cause an injury to your stomach
alcohol
caffeine (no more than one cup of coffee or tea per day)
smoking
illegal drugs
raw fish or smoked seafood (no sushi)
shark, swordfish, mackerel, or white snapper fish (they have high levels of mercury)

cat litter, which can carry a parasitic disease called toxoplasmosis
unpasteurized milk or other dairy products
