Hello everyone, My wife and I had to share our thoughts on having a healthy pregnancy. We sent some private messages to certain individuals but we eventually realized that this information could be helpful to everyone. My wife and I are having our secind child on February 14, 2010 (Valentine's Day ) Our first pregnancy was good but my wife ended up gaining too much weight. This effected her asthma terribly. It also caused her to have unwanted pains in her joints/back. I'm sure you all know that having a healthy pregnancy is the ideal method of choice. This can be extremely difficult! I'm well aware of the many cravings that come with pregnancy i.e. ice cream/pickles, snickers/Doritos, pizza/onion rings, etc. The only thing I can stress to you all is this, the best chances of you fitting into those skinny jeans after pregnancy is having a healthy pregnancy. You must eat right and excercise! If you get a good foundation during the pregnancy, you can finish strong once the baby is out. What I mean is this, there is a window of opportunity right after a woman's body resets after childbirth. Being that I'm a fitness nut, I have a general idea of how to get in shape and stay in shape. But when it came to writing up a plan for my wife, I was lost. A great tool we would recommend is an ebook by Kitty Barker, t_tled, Slim and Healthy Pregnancy. Here's the link: Healthy Pregnancy Diet What the ebook covers: Dietary guidelines for several different aspects of your diet, including protein, fats, carbohydrates, fiber, fluids, folic acid, calcium, iron, and omega-3 fats; Simple and straightforward meal plans for pre, post and during pregnancy intake; Luscious, easy-to-follow recipes; Guilt-free foods to help with your cravings and nutritional requirements; Lists of what to avoid before, during and after your pregnancy; Healthy snacks; Complete meal plans; and More than seventy pages chock-full of information you need to know. Like I said before, my wife and I had to share this information with you all. Hopefully you all have a wonderful and joyous pregnancy. This is it for us. Thanks for reading.

Here are few pregnancy tips for working women. Proper diet Pregnancy women should take proper diet because working women have a tendency to avoid food or to take untimely food. These factors can be dangerous and harmful to health of both child and mother. It needs to keep the energy level at work. It includes more proteins and carbohydrates. As doctor says that one should avoid fatty food totally when in office as it may add the reason for body stress Take extra care of yourself Just remember that you are pregnant and don’t put more or extra burden of work on you, as they can tend to anemia, eclampsia, and high blood pressure or even increased level of blood sugar. Eat proper food and stay away from junk foods, alcohols and coffee. Fruit juice gives you a good idea as they give more nutritional boost, but water is your great friend during the period of pregnancy. Don’t be afraid to ask help Most people have enough politeness to help and protect women like giving place to sit in public transportations or help you to accomplish higher objects. If no one is present around you don’t afraid or feel guilty to ask for help. Don’t be scared to ask for help from your collaborator as well as to share the chores of household. Wear comfortable clothes Pregnancy working women should wear comfortable clothes that mean loose fitting clothes which don’t put any pressure on the fetus. It helps you to prevent the feeling of breathlessness and feels to breath easily. Make sure that you are comfortable and have easy and simple sitting arrangement. You can also carry small pillow to relax your neck and back. Put your hands on the arm rest and keep distance while working on the system. Also keep napkin, chewing gum and many more to avoid sickness during morning. Be aware of pregnancy discrimination If you are working as an expectant mother be aware of your rights as well as keep in mind that pregnancy discrimination is criminal. Your manager cannot strength you to continue duties that are hazardous or unsafe to your health or your baby health. Your manager must give you maternity leave or off days for your pregnancy. One better way is to keep mulching on healthy fruits, snacks of salads and many more. Keep water or fruit juice close to protect your body from getting hydrated. Try to take few breaks in between and go for walk with your collaborators to get some fresh air. _____________________________________________________ “As women, we cannot afford to neglect ourselves.” MICHELLE OBAMA

Exercise -- it's important for your general health and also can help reduce stress. Take a pregnancy exercise cla__s or walk at least fifteen to twenty minutes every day at a moderate pace. Walk in cool, shaded areas or indoors in order to prevent overheating.

Everyone’s heard of probiotics by now and how they can support a healthy immune system. But they’re great for pregnancy, specifically. Probiotics can reduce the sensitive tummy that comes along with pregnancy. It can also optimize your blood glucose levels to keep everything working as it should.
