Information on Pregnancy

Pregnancy affects women differently. For some, the nine months pass by easily, while other women battle significant challenges in their health, relationships, and general well-being.
 
Some of the most commonly reported symptoms experienced in the first three months of pregnancy (first trimester) include nausea, fatigue, mood swings, and headaches. In the second trimester, symptoms like nausea and headache should lessen, but you may have new symptoms, such as itching, tingling, or skin changes. During your third trimester, you may experience heartburn, swelling, hemorrhoids, and tender breasts.
 
Although you can't prepare for everything during pregnancy, having useful information can help put your mind at ease and reduce your risk of problems. In addition to having regular prenatal appointments, you can help reduce your risk of pregnancy problems by:
 
  • Quitting smoking if you are a smoker
  • Eating a healthy diet and getting plenty of fluids
  • Avoiding toxic substances, such as lead and cleaning solvents.
