22 Jul A Guide to Just Found Out I’m Pregnant
Just found out I’m pregnant; Congratulations on the big news, we are here to help you in the most emotional phase of your life, Pregnancy. We are here to guide you through the ins and outs, the happiness and fears of pregnancy. We have got all the expert advice for you, we will never let you miss anything.
Do not stress out; let me tell you again relax and do not stress out.
When to Break this News; decide when should you make this big announcement to everybody that you are having a baby. I suggest breaking this news after 12 weeks of pregnancy.
Bad Habit; cut out any major bad habit so this means putting down the booze, putting out the cigarettes, and tossing out any drugs. The important thing is that you kicked these habits as soon as you know that you are pregnant
Regular Medicines; if you’re taking any prescription drugs you will definitely want to check with your doctor and make sure that they’re okay to continue talking while you are pregnant.
Stay hydrated. Drinking lots of water is one of the easiest cheapest and best ways to take care of yourself. Staying active will also benefit your baby to be so as long as you’re comfortable.
Prenatal Vitamins; start taking prenatal vitamins right away. You should be taking prenatal vitamins specifically not just a multi-vitamin. The reason for this is that prenatal vitamins typically contain more folic acid and iron than a standard multivitamin Folic acid helps prevent neural tube defects. Iron helps support the baby’s growth and development and that also helps prevent anemia.
Health Insurance; next up is health insurance if you do not have it you should get at the total cost of having a healthy baby was zero complications at a hospital ranges from about 15 to $38000. So, even with health insurance, the average cost to you is about 3401 all the smoke clears. If you are low income and you’re having trouble paying for insurance there are also a lot of great resources in your community to assist you. Planned Parenthood is an excellent resource and a great place to start if this is the case.
Use of alcohol; some health professionals will say this is a major NO, NO in any quantity and some will tell you it’s okay to enjoy an occasional glass of wine. Ultimately it’s up to you if you want to enjoy a glass of wine every now.
Avoid unpasteurized foods. These can include cheeses like feta brie gorgonzola any cheese made with unpasteurized milk. So you are gonna want to look for a label that says it’s made with pasteurized milk. The reason for this is to avoid the concern of Listeria so Listeria is a bacterium that could be really harmful to the baby.
Use of fish; you should be limiting your intake of fish with high levels of mercury so mercury is an element that can collect in oceans lakes and streams. If you’re eating a lot of fish from a local lake or stream you may want to check with the local advisory and find out if they can get you some information on levels of mercury, there. If you do like to eat canned tuna I would recommend keeping it at 6 ounces a week or less.
If you have a Cat; try to avoid cleaning the litter box. So think of the next 9 months as a vacation from cleaning up after your cat. Being around your cat is perfectly fine. However, their faces and the sand that they bury it and can contain a parasitic infection called toxoplasmosis. And that can cause some serious birth defects so please ask your family or your partner or friend to come by and clean out your letterbox.
Body temperature; while you are pregnant you’ll want to make sure that you do not overheat. Generally, the advice is also to avoid hot tubs and saunas the key being that you just do not want to overheat your body.
Coffee; do not worry you don’t have to completely 100 percent caught coffee out of your diet but you should be moderating your caffeine intake and cut down to one cup a day. If cutting down to just one Cup of coffee a day sounds really difficult then make half regular coffee and half decaf and then you can enjoy 2 cups. Keep caffeine consumption in mind with other beverages to like tea energy drink sodas and of course, you already know the bass beverage for both you and the baby is always going to be water.
Finally, you really need to think about everything you’re putting in your body and I know that this seems really overwhelming at first in the beginning but it.
