3. Don't skip your first meal of the day.

Make sure, you eating your first meal of the day in the morning with a good amount of nutrients, if you are not able to eat in one go always divide your breakfast into two.

4. Don't miss out on your fibers

5. Choosing Healthy snacks.

Have healthy food at the time of snacks instead of eating junk. If you having junk food in the past, it can totally become a habit, so always be cautious about what you are consuming.

6. Following a proper dosage for supplements.

The dosage differs from individuals and according to medical conditions if any. So it's better to consult your doctor before adding them in your plan.

7. Avoid bad habits like smoking and drinking alcohol.

Smoking or drinking alcohol can have a bad impact on the growth of the child.
Restrict it totally during this period.

8. The trouble with Nausea?

If you having nausea don't start undereating, it's not the solution, just limit the quantity of food and eat in small portions at one time.

9. Sleeping positions.

Avoid sleeping on your back as it can cause problems while breathing. Sleeping on your stomach i.e when you lie your face down, your abdomen presses on your expanding uterus, not a great idea either.

Sleeping on your left side is the safest position. It helps in improving the circulation providing with nutrient-packed blood with an easy route from your heart to the placenta to nourish your baby.
