You know that the more information you have about pregnancy, the easier it will be to keep yourself on the right track for the better health of you and your baby. There is no mystery about using common sense and practical ideas to make this happen. Try some of these tips to start off right.
Ok to Vent
It is OK to want to vent about your pregnancy. It is hard being pregnant and the last trimester can be quite uncomfortable. Just because you are feeling awful and want to vent about it does not mean that you are any less grateful for the little miracle that you are carrying.
When pregnant, make sure you are 100% comfortable with the doctor or OB/GYN who will be delivering your child. If you are not, search for another one until you are. Ask questions when you need an answer, there is nothing your doctor has not heard before. And make sure you check out the delivery facilities prior to the birth so you are completely comfortable with where your child will be born. All these things will ensure that your pregnancy is calmer and less stressful.
If you plan on breastfeeding your baby, do not let the state of your breasts during pregnancy concern you. The amount of growth or leakage you experience--if any--has no bearing on your ultimate ability to breastfeed. There is no reason to pump prior to delivery, either, as the hormones that enable your body to produce milk do not kick in until the postpartum period.
As you can see from the practical ideas and common sense advice in the article above, there is no mystery about what you can do right now to make your pregnancy the very best time for you and your baby. They will keep you on track so you can spend less time worrying and more time enjoying these exciting nine months.
