Parenthood is a greatest joy that a couple experiences during their lifetime. Becoming a parent means lifelong changes and the opportunity to bring another human life into the world. Taking care of yourself during your pregnancy is very important as it affects the health of your baby. Also, it is very important to keep a check of your pregnancy weekly as there are changes in the growth and development of the fetus inside you. When you visit your gynecologist, she will give you some guidelines that should be followed. In addition to these, you should also do your homework as it will be affecting you and your baby both.

Diet

You should read articles that mentions all the essential nutrients that should be in a balanced diet. You can also talk to your nutritionist or your doctor, who will tell you what to avoid eating outside but if you have a sensitive stomach, try to avoid uncooked foods, salads, and avoid eating at places where the food is suspect. Don’t eat outdoors in summers because there are more chances of food getting spoiled easily. You should take a complete balanced diet that is rich in essential vitamins like carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals, calcium and other vital elements.

Sleep

When you are pregnant, you should take proper care of your posture when you sleep.

Sleeping on your back when pregnant may harm your back, as added weight sits straight on your spinal cord. It's advisable to sleep on your side, preferably on your left side as this will help in the optimal oxygen flow to your baby.

Alcohol

You should try to avoid drinking or smoking at the time of your pregnancy. You should try to avoid drinking but if you are craving for it then you should consider opting for a juice. A cup of mild coffee a day is fine, but having a glass of juice is even better.

Exercise

Regular exercise daily will help you and your baby stay fit and healthy. A short walk everyday can also suffice. You don't need to run or walk fastly, but keeping your leg muscles strong will help in the delivery process. You should always consult your doctor before starting any exercise program.

Read

you should spend some time reading articles related to pregnancy or any other topic of your choice everyday. Reading is a relaxing activity and also a good idea to stay away from depressing books and read something light and interesting. If you find interesting and enjoy reading, you should surely pick some lighthearted books at this time. If you don’t have time to read books, you should surely read a joke a day. Pregnancy is a very stressful time and this is a great way to just let loose and laugh. The effects of heartfelt laughter are bound to impact a foetus positively.

Music

during your pregnancy, you should try to listen to smoothing music and should play the same music consistently at the same time. You can also continue this when your baby is born and can watch your baby calm down as soon as you play the music.
