I am pregnant

It is a great joy for every woman who finds out that they are pregnant. Regardless of if it is your first time. Whatever you decide to do next is what matters to you and your unborn child, and can help you keep enjoying the next nine months.

Tell Your doctor, he needs to know

You realize apart from your partner; your doctor is the next crucial person to break the news to. If you don’t have a personal doctor, then you may want to visit a health centre as soon as possible.

Let the doctor know if you have been under any kind of medication or you have a history of chronic disease, like blood pressure or a heart condition.

The doctor will also be interested to know if you have had pregnancy complications in the past or miscarriage.

Do not hesitate to talk about diseases that run in your family line, they pose a major risk for you and your unborn baby.

It is vital to have frequent appointments with your doctor just to make sure that you are both out of danger.

When pregnant, nobody would want to hear that their pregnancy is not going on well. They will do screen tests; ultrasound scans and checks of your blood pressure and urine.

Get IFAS-Iron and Folic Acid Supplements

This can help in protecting your baby from developing brain and spinal code problems (spina bifida)

It is recommended that you take a 400 microgram tablet every day. This folic acid supplements are available at your nearby chemist or health center.

When pregnant, there are women who might require higher IFAS dosage, like 5 milligrams each day. This happens if you are found to be affected by any of the above-mentioned conditions.

Taking 10- micrograms of vitamin D on daily basis is recommended. It is safe to take multi-vitamins but avoid taking vitamin A in excess.

You need to change your lifestyle habits

Carrying a baby in your womb is a sacrifice that calls for you to deny yourself some of luxury. It might be a tough decision to make but you will definitely have to.

Smoking: Quit smoking. You don’t want to risk your risk of getting pregnancy and delivery complications, stillbirth, premature birth, low birth weight and cot death. Nobody wants that. So you don’t have a choice.

Caffeine: This natural chemical is mostly found in coffee and other drinks, like tea, green tea, chocolate, in most energy drinks and fizzy drinks such as cola.

You will have to cut down on your daily consumption to up to a maximum of about 200 milligrams, which equals to 2 mugs of instant coffee.  

Excess consumption places you at a higher risk of giving birth to low weight baby or miscarry.

Alcohol: There is no known safe level of alcohol intake during pregnancy, but you will have to cut on your intake for sake of your baby, as it might pose a risk to miscarriage, low birth weight and premature delivery.

Foetal alcohol syndrome is a condition associated with heavy drinking during pregnancy and might result to severe mental and physical problems.

Healthy Diet

Your growing baby needs required nutrients. Eat a balanced diet of carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables and protein. Having a heavy breakfast can help you avoid snacking during the day.

Some of you might experience morning sicknesses and nausea. There is no proper treatment for that but you can try to eat very small meals.

Consider eating in the morning, maybe right after getting up. This can help settle an uneasy stomach. Small sips of ginger tea can help with nausea.

There could be fears of putting on a lot of weight or thinking that if you eat less, labour will be easier and you won’t have to work hard to get rid of the baby weight. However, this might lead to serious complications for the mother and child. Avoid dieting or starving yourself.

Dealing with your cravings is another major challenge. You will have to eat what you feel like. Just make sure it is within the parameters of healthy eating.

Also make sure that you drink a lot of water and fluids if you are vomiting. Consider seeing your doctor incase the situation gets out of control.

Keep exercising

Apart from wanting to keep your baby safe, you will also have to mind about your yourself. Don’t quit exercise. Even so, talk to your instructor about it for better and safe moves. Otherwise, you won’t want to risk pregnancy termination.

Stick only to ways that make you and your baby comfortable.

If you want to begin, start gently. Take walks around the park, your estate, you can swim or even do pregnancy yoga.

Set time for relaxation and rest

This will help you overcome common tension and frequent headaches. You also have to battle a whole cycle of mood swings, courtesy of hormonal changes.

At your early stages you could be experiencing fatigue, so you should retire to bed early.

Make your bed as comfortable as possible just to help ease the pressure.

Are you under medication?

As stated earlier, you will have to let your doctor know that you are pregnant and whether you are under any medication. This will help you know if they are harmful to your baby.

You don’t just stop taking your medicine without medical advice. This case also applies to those who are HIV/Aids positive. Read more on the same https://aidsinfo.nih.gov/guidelines/html/3/perinatal/157/pregnant-women-living-with-hiv-who-are-currently-receiving-antiretroviral-therapy

Spread the news

Apart from your immediate family and very close friends, you may consider letting people know tat you are expectant.

This will safe- guard you and your baby. For instance, if your work is strenuous, you will have to talk to your boss about it.

All these measures are meant to help you have a safe pregnancy and safe delivery. Remember no woman should die while giving life.
