Nourish Your Body
Books like, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, are full of complicated nutritional plans that can bring on a loss of appetite just by looking at them. Simplify all of the rules by doing your best to eat food that isn’t highly processed and nourishes your body. Also, consider working with a nutritionist.
The secret to committing to an exercise routine is finding something fun! Water aerobics and swimming are two activities that can be truly enjoyable during pregnancy. Consider starting a walking group with co-workers. Do what works for you but always check with a care provider before starting a new exercise routine.
During pregnancy, you want to work with someone who will not only provide excellent care but also build confidence in your ability to have a healthy outcome for you and your baby. A size friendly health care provider does just that! You owe it to yourself to connect with an OB-GYN or midwife who will treat you with dignity.
