I am a mom of twin boys. I feel every pregnancy is different and unique in their way. I believe it’s a beautiful phase of life when everyone pampers you and you are like soaked up in pieces of advice. Everyone wants to share their pregnancy tips or wants you to be safe and take good care of yourself and your baby. In the whole pregnancy phase, we should take care of many things such as our doctor’s visit, prenatal tabs, exercises and most importantly, our diet.
We should have at least one glass of milk daily and lots of water. Instead of juices have whole fruits. Avoid fried foods.
In my last trimester, I was in lack of Omega 3, so I had flax seeds powder, and it really helped me, so go for it. We should have small meals throughout the day; it can be six small meals or seven also, it depends on you. In our pregnancy, we tend to have cravings for so many things but better to avoid junkies. Mostly all the gynaecologists do share food chart so follow that.
Add lots of green veggies in your diet like beans, methi, spinach etc. They are a rich source of iron, folate, zinc and many more.
In between your meal make sure you have one fruit.
If you have a sunlight area at your home, do try to sit in sunlight for at least 10-15 minutes daily in your pregnancy. It will take care of the deficiency of vitamin D for you and your baby.
If you are a green tea lover try to avoid green tea, no doubt green tea is immensely beneficial but as it triggers stimulation in the uterus, it can cause preterm labour, and it interferes with absorption of iron and folic acid so better to be safe.
Most importantly stay positive and happy!! Don’t let negativity come in your mind!
