Late Pregnancy - Tips for first 3 months

Pregnant? Above 30 years? First time Pregnancy?
Then this could be considered as late pregnancy. The very normal question at a party, while you meet some one new is ... Are you married? How many children do you have? Sometimes it is very embarrassing for someone without kids to answer that question.
Many married couples are still struggling to have a child and a few have succeeded, may be a little late. While there is late pregnancy, there should be more care taken during the first 16 weeks.

Care must be taken towards good health, nutritious food and happy atmosphere. During this period many women face problems like feet pain, vomiting sensations, unable to eat food, uneasiness after food, etc. If care is not taken during this time, this could lead to weight loss and sometimes could affect the baby too.

Tips to follow

1) Consumption of food - You can eat whatever you like to eat. Consumption of pomegranates, apples, orange juice along with regular food will help a lot. Avoid certain food like papaya or as per doctors advice.

2) Liquor and smoking during pregnancy is not advisable. Also request your husband to be away from you while smoking.

3) You can have cute photographs stuck around the house. Talk positive, think positive, watch pleasant and positive movies or programs on television. Avoid horror and terror movies.

4) Spread your meal into 6-7 times a day. You can eat in small amounts multiple times. Never over eat.

5) Consumption of dry fruits like Almonds, Pista, Raisings, Figs, etc., can help in good health.

6) Travelling at this point could be a risk. Avoid it as much as possible.
