    During pregnancy, it often happens to crave for something interesting & different every time. But a healthier eating habit is good both for the baby & the mothers’ to be. I remember when I was pregnant, my gynecologist from Cloudninecare was stick only towards the healthier food during all the nine months. And thanks to her my delivery was less complicated.

    Starting prenatal vitamins as soon as you find out you are pregnant is a great idea. Getting advice from a doctor on what you specifically need to take would also be a good idea. Taking notes of what the doctor suggest during visits would be helpful.

    My husband and I are trying to get pregnant with our first child. I am very nervous to be pregnant as I have never been pregnant before, so I was looking for advice that would help me. I never knew that you shouldn’t stop exercising. I always thought exercising while pregnant was detrimental to the baby, but I like how you mentioned that exercise reduces back pain and adds muscle tone to help with labor pains. I’ll have to keep my daily exercise routines in place when I get pregnant!

    It’s good to know that prenatal vitamins are essential during pregnancy, even if they are eating healthy. It definitely makes sense too, especially since you are growing another human being inside your body. Plus, there really aren’t any downsides to taking extra vitamins; they just get flushed out of your system. Are some prenatal vitamins prescribed, or are they mostly OTC?

    One of my best friends from high school just found out that she is pregnant with her first child. I liked that you pointed out that she shouldn’t stop exercising. She plays a lot of soccer, and it seems like she should probably switch to just running until the baby is born.

    My husband and I are trying to get pregnant. My aunt suggested trying Vitro fertilization and she also shared this article with me. She said that when I get pregnant I should snack correctly and eat healthy foods like bananas, eggs, and oatmeal.
