Sleep as much as you want while you are pregnant. Sleep is in short supply for the parents of newborns. Also, while pregnant, your baby is eating up much of your available energy. Don't be afraid to sleep in, go to bed early, or nap when you want to. You won't be able to later!

 

Always wear sunscreen. This is especially important while you are pregnant. Tanning beds should also be avoided. Your skin will be more sensitive during pregnancy. This will increase the chances of sunspots and sunburns. The key is to remember to use a sunscreen that is free from harmful chemicals that could affect the baby.

 

If you smoke, being pregnant is the greatest reason you will ever have to stop smoking so find a way to do it now! As stressful as being pregnant may be, jeopardizing the health of your baby is a million times more stressful. This is a great opportunity to get medical help to quit and have the strongest motivating factor to keep you smoke-free.

 

Create a birth plan. Having a written document that expresses your wishes for your delivery will help the medical professionals involved understand what you want your experience to be like. Include things like who should be present at the birth and what procedures you want to stay away from during the delivery.

 

Pregnancy is both a positive and challenging thing to have happen in your life. The positive part about it is bringing something new into the world. The challenging parts are dealing with not only physical changes, but mental as well. You may experience different moods and things you're not used to and a doctor will very much be willing to help and a valuable ally in your new adventure.

 

Take your iron pills. Many pregnant women will get anemia at some point during their pregnancy. Your body needs a lot of iron reserves for the birth and after when you are breastfeeding. Ask your doctor early about taking an iron supplement to keep your levels high and prevent anemia in the first place.

 

Your nutrition now that you are pregnant, is more important than ever. Not only are you needing more energy and strength just to get through the day, but your baby also needs lots of vitamins and minerals to develop properly. Make sure you eat several solid meals each day and work in items from each major food group.

 

It's a very special time, being pregnant. It is a great journey and the choices you make are permanent Pregnancy is an amazing thing, but not without its questions and concerns. This article has provided you with a few basic tips to get you started on this miraculous journey. Hopefully, they'll help you along the way.
