our site presents … 5 tips for a healthy pregnancy
#1 Don't eat for two
At a healthy weight?
Extra calories needed per day:
340 = 2nd tri
450 = 3rd tri
Try an apple with 2 Tbs peanut butter OR a glass of milk + 15 baby carrots + 5 Tbs hummus.
#2 Sleep on your side
Side sleeping prevents loss of circulation and low blood pressure.
#3 Beware the litter box
Cat poop can spread an infection called toxoplasmosis, which can cause serious health problems for your baby. Have someone else clean up the litter box daily.
#4 Take care of your teeth & gums
Pregnancy hormones can cause swollen, bleeding, tender gums. Don't skip your regular teeth cleaning.
#5 Get your shots
The flu can be more serious during pregnancy. It's safe to get a flu shot in any trimester.
Get it in your 3rd trimester.
