Do These 7 Things for a Smoother First Trimester.

Have an Easy First Trimester with these 7 Pregnancy Care Tips

The first trimester sets the tone for your entire pregnancy, which is why it is so crucial to get things right. From routines to the habits you establish during this period, everything has to be perfect.

You’ve got a whole nine months ahead of you and you haven’t got the slightest clue as to how you can get it off to the right start. Well, allow us to tell you. We’ve put together a list of 7 highly effective things you can do during your first trimester of pregnancy to make it smooth as well as to ensure the other two trimesters go well too.

 1. Get good Prenatal Healthcare; the importance of this cannot be stressed enough. To ensure the continued health of your baby and your body, you need to hire someone who is a specialist at prenatal care. We advise you to get recommendations on first trimester care from friends and family. When it comes to this aspect of your first trimester, the trust factor really counts.

2. Make your very first prenatal appointment to confirm your pregnancy and do routine tests and such. These tests will help doctors to assess, and you to know, that all is well inside the womb. And with your health too.

3. From prenatal vitamins to foods, familiarize yourself with what you can and can’t put into your body during pregnancy. Do your best to eat healthy foods only. While this is no rocket science, it is important, which is why we’ve included it.

4. Stay hydrated because now your heart isn’t just pumping blood for you; it’s doing it for your baby too. Drinking lots of water will help nourish you enough to support your baby too. Flush out all those unnecessary toxins; they’re no good for you, more so during your first trimester.

5. Cut out caffeine because research has shown that high caffeine consumption is linked to miscarriage and other pregnancy problems. So, even if you’re addicted to your everyday cuppa, you’re going to have to be a responsible mother and kick the habit for 9 months.
That’s a small sacrifice in the long run!

6. Quit smoking (if you smoke) unless you want to risk placental problems or stillbirth. Also, quit alcohol because it can increase your child's risk of suffering from learning and speech impairments, attention deficit, language issues, and hyperactivity. You don’t want your child to suffer just because you couldn’t control your addictions and allowed them to control you instead.

7. Go to bed early because your baby needs you to be in tune with your natural biological clock. What’s more, you’re going to be pretty exhausted during your first trimester and getting to bed early will help you stay strong and fresh. Early to bed, early to rise, makes your baby healthy, wealthy and wise.

Here’s to a great first trimester and a thrilling new chapter in your life!
