What to Do in the First Trimester of Pregnancy
Pregnancy is one of the most exciting phases of a woman’s life. The whole pregnancy is such a beautiful cycle, full of changes that we need to embrace. So here are few things one should do in the first trimester or first three months of pregnancy.
- Stay Hydrated
Drink as much water as you can, as your body goes through so many changes and you may feel exhausted all the time. We need at least 3 litres of water to keep ourselves fresh and to balance our body temperature. Water also helps prevent urine infection, which is very common during pregnancy.
- Take Care of Your Nutrient Intake
One should always take care of their diet from the beginning, as our body needs all the macro and micronutrients it can get. Take a good amount of folic acid in this trimester, as it helps in the baby’s brain development. Take Vitamin A and C for the baby’s skin and a good amount of calcium for the baby’s bones. Make a diet routine for yourself. That’s how you will enjoy eating the foods you crave but still count on proper nutrition.
- Take Care of Your Skin
Due to all the hormonal changes and changes in weight, our skin changes as well. So it needs to give a special care to avoid stretch marks or skin pigmentation. Hydrate your skin by applying body oil
or skin butter. Eat healthy food and lot of water. And remember, your body will naturally recover after 6 months of delivery, so don’t bother about it much.
- Stay Relaxed
Get a good amount of sleep every night. Our body needs energy throughout the day to care for yourself and the child’s development, so it’s important to regain your energy through sleep. And don’t take much stress about anything because all of the hormonal changes we tend to experience.
- Stay Active
The last and most important thing is to keep yourself active. Exercise every day to maintain good body weight. Walk for at least half an hour.
A healthy baby lives in a healthy body, so do everything you can to care for your little one’s development.
