Safe Ways For Early Pregnancy

The first three months are when the mother's body undergoes many physiological changes and the major organs of the fetus begin to develop.

During this time the risk of miscarriage is high and the health of the fetus is very dependent on the welfare of the mother. You will find yourself in the middle of a lot of advice about what you should and shouldn't do, much of which may not make sense.

So if you are wondering what security measures should actually be implemented, here is a short list of security measures.

1. Food and drink

Once the fetus attaches to the uterine wall, it begins to draw nutrients and oxygen from you. What you consume will determine not only your health but also the health of your developing baby.

While it's clear that you should eat nutritious, fiber-rich foods, there are some that you should avoid/minimize.

Caffeine: Consuming more than 300mg of caffeine increases the risk of miscarriage.

Large fish: While fish is an excellent source of protein and omega-2, large fish such as mackerel contain high amounts of methyl mercury and should be avoided.

Raw and raw fish, eggs and meat: Pregnant women are much more susceptible to infection.

Some bacteria such as E. coli, Listeria and Salmonella can easily contaminate raw food. Some of them, such as Listeria, can be passed to an unborn baby via the placenta. Always eat well cooked food.

2. Hot tub

Your body can't dissipate heat effectively if you use hot tubs, saunas, and even steam rooms. This causes a significant increase in body temperature, which is unsafe for the developing baby. Hot showers should be avoided completely during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

3. Physical activity

The mother's body undergoes a number of physical and hormonal changes during pregnancy.

Fatigue and nausea are very common during the early weeks. It is recommended that you get plenty of rest. Do not lift heavy weights to avoid unnecessary stress on the growing baby.

Women can safely resume exercise during early pregnancy but if you did not exercise before becoming pregnant, it is advisable to take it slowly. The road is good. However, if you experience pregnancy complications, consult your doctor before starting anything new.

4. Cleanliness

If you have pets, make it a habit to wash your hands after patting them to avoid infections such as taxoplasmosis which can affect the fetus and cause brain damage.

Wear gloves when gardening and avoid handling pet waste.
