Healthy Baby Bump

If you are watching in Discovery Health Channel, there is one program (I Didn't Know I was Pregnant) that features moms who doesn't know they are pregnant until they are ready to give birth. It's amazing that babies are born healthy in most cases. But I say and I believe most of you will agree, it's not advisable to go through stages of pregnancy without consulting a doctor. The risks are still there for the mother and the baby.


While doing my regular checking of email, I come across an article from Health Today concerning things that a first-time expectant mother must know.

  1. If you are planning to get pregnant, take Folic Acid. That is to support healthy brain development of the baby during the first eight weeks. 
  2. Balanced diet is important too. Take the supplements prescribed by doctor but don't forget to eat variety of healthy food. There are foods to avoid such as alcohol, sodas, coffee, and sweets. Ask your doctor for the list so you'll be guided accordingly. 
  3. Most pregnant women complain on back pains which is normal because of the abdomen getting big due to enlarging uterus. Doctors advise is to practice good posture in sitting and standing. You can also ask your doctor for few exercise tips that can help to ease the pain. 
  4. Our heart plays an important role in pregnancy that is why women needs to improve cardiovascular health. Exercises that will support your body weight or will not lead you to accidents are recommended for this purpose. Walking, stationary biking or swimming are few of the doctors recommendations. 
  5. As day past, changes in your body will show such as pimples. You may also have discharges and heartburn. Before it even happen, you can ask your doctor for things you can do if you are uncomfortable with these changes. 
  6. Frequent urination is very common to pregnant woman so don't be irritated about it.
  7. Before delivering your baby, prepare everything you need. Have them ready in a bag that your husband can easily bring when the water bag broke. 
  8. Most importantly, be happy always. It will make your pregnancy lighter and not stressful.

  3. Great tips for pregnant moms. Those who didn't even know they're pregnant surely didn't get through the morning sickness stage. Though I envy those women I wouldn't to be in that kind of pregnancy for the sake of the baby.

  4. It has been almost 7 years since the last time I was pregnant. I missed those baby moves in my tummy. Pregnancy is the greatest thing and to carry a human being inside you is amazing and so hard to describe :-) Yet being pregnant is not easy too but with healthy is what matter most for the Mom and for the baby :-)

  5. It's really important to take care of our body especially when pregnant because whatever happens to us or whatever we feel and eat will always affect the fetus. This every expectant mom or wanna be mom should really really bear in mind.
