Burning sensations in the chest
If you suffer from heartburn and you are pregnant, there are some steps you can take to avoid it. Don't drink a lot of fluids while you eat. You will want to drink eight to ten glasses of water per day, but only sip it between meals. Drinking too much water at one time could cause your stomach to become distended.
STD's: Know your status
Know if you are HIV-positive or not. If you find out that you are, do not automatically freak out. HIV-positive women that are aware of this early on, have a higher chance of sparing their babies from getting this disease. You will want to make sure that you have an OB-GYN that is well educated about the care that will need to be taken and can explain all of your options for a safe pregnancy.
If you are pregnant with your first child, be sure to make plenty of time for yourself and your partner. Your life is going to change a lot after the baby is born and it will be a long time before you can get some alone time. So be sure to put some alone time on your schedule before the baby is born.
If you are pregnant with your first child, you should babysit for a friend with a young baby; this will give you an idea of what it is like to care for a newborn. Also, this will help to make you feel a little more comfortable once your baby is born.
Pregnancy is one of the most special times of your life. It is an experience like no other, as the decisions you make will impact your child forever. Pregnancy is full of wonder, so many questions and so much information to take in. This article has provided you with a few basic tips to get you started on this miraculous journey. We hope you will find them useful and helpful.
