Having a healthy diet isn’t enough, make sure you have the proper prenatal vitamins, its best to consult your doctor for your specific needs!
- Avoid The Bars
Although many women know this, it’s always important to continue stating this. Avoiding alcohol is the number one thing to do while you’re pregnant! Also, don’t smoke while you’re pregnant and avoid second-hand smoke.
- Sleep While You Can
Most new mothers wish they would have slept more before their baby was born! Not only will you feel rested after getting an adequate number of sleep, your baby needs it too.
- Don’t Stop Exercising
Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean that you should stop with your exercise routine! Although, while your pregnancy continues, you may not be able to do the same routines and exercises as before, stopping all together isn’t good. Exercise helps reduce back pain and adds muscle tone, which can help with labor pains.
