If you are pregnant, first of all… Congratulations!!
The road may have been easy, or a little more complicated, but in the end the miracle happened, and it is one of the most beautiful and joyful motives you will celebrate in your life.
You’re probably ecstatic, like in a cloud, and you may also get a little bit scared and insecure because of the lack of knowledge you still have about the subject. But calmly, we are here to guide you in this first process of your new life, so that you do not lose detail of the next steps to follow from now.
What should I do now? Steps to follow
First, tell your loved ones. There is nothing more joyful than the arrival of a baby in a family. Share your moment with the people you love so that they transmit you all their joy and good energy for what is about to come. In this way, by sharing your feelings, they will be able to help and advise you in everything you need from now on. (It’s advice, from mother to mother 🙂
Visit your doctor
The first visit you make must be to your family doctor. It is very important that you be aware of your new situation and write it down in your story. In this way you will be able to start calculating possible birth dates and possible weeks of pregnancy that you are already carrying, which is very important in order to start planning medical appointments and tests that you are going to have to undergo.
Folic Acid is an essential supplement during pregnancy. It is included in the group of B vitamins (which are involved in human metabolism) and its function prevents neural defects or defects in the baby’s spinal cord. Very important!
We recommend that you get a pregnancy schedule that is only and exclusively for this. Since you are going to have to write down a lot of medical appointments, ultrasounds, control the weeks of pregnancy, etc … Plus the amount of papers, and flyers that give you, with which, try to bring everything as organized and up to date as possible, so that you do not miss anything.
Essential Pregnancy Guide
You can also download some app about pregnancy, to follow the baby’s evolution day after day, where you can calculate the weight you are taking, and all the very interesting data about the baby’s development and evolution. It will fill you with joy to see how it is growing, because it is experiencing phases, the organs that are developing little by little and the infinite number of incredible things that can already be done inside your tummy, like starting to blink, or start hearing your voice, open your mouth, laugh …
Talk to other moms
The best thing you can do when you’re pregnant is talk to other moms.
But watch out! Don’t stay with everything they tell you, don’t pay attention to everything they tell you. Each case is a world, each pregnancy is different, each body is different from another, and each birth, each baby, and each way of raising or living things are very different.
It is good that you profit from all the information and different experiences they tell you in order to know more, and take each little piece of each experience or experience they tell you, the one you are interested in and then apply it to you, your baby and your upbringing.
Read and find out
Reading and educating yourself about pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting will do you good. It is something fundamental that you must do, the more you know about something, the better decisions you will be able to make about it.
But as we emphasized in the previous point, don’t literally keep everything, take the notes that interest you.
It is very important that you are educated and have as much information as possible about the changes you are going to experience emotionally and physically. The changes that the arrival of your baby is going to suppose for your life and above all that you are going to have to face when the time comes to meet that little person who has grown inside you for 9 months.
The more prepared physically and mentally for that moment, >strong>the better things will go! >.
Start taking care of yourself
Fundamental. Everything you eat, breathe, feel and live, your baby suffers in the same way. So it’s very important that you start taking good care of yourself, inside and out.
Eat everything, you have to pass the best nutrients to your baby and various types, (as long as the doctor, or midwife has not prohibited something in particular)
Watch unpasteurized dairy products, and watch the sausage until you pass the toxoplasmosis test.
Remember that you can’t eat anything that’s raw, and the meat that’s made as much as possible.
Dedicate time to yourself, to connecting with yourself and your baby. You have to devote time to both of you, to your care, to pampering each other, to letting them pamper you.
Do things that make you feel good. Signing up for yoga for pregnant women, pilates, or simply going swimming, will be experiences and sensations that will make you feel great, and the better you are, the better your baby will be.
You have 9 months to dedicate to choose the name of the baby, the decoration of his room and countless things to have everything ready and prepared.
You can get ideas in specialized blogs, in sector magazines to develop the little things you want for your baby and make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Welcome to this wonderful stage of pregnancy, and enjoy every moment that your baby is going to give you as it grows in your tummy! I’m sure you’ll be a great mother to him.
