Pregnancy is not a free-for-all time to eat anything and everything you want. Pregnant women should watch their weight and food intake. Think about incorporating whole foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Limit processed foods as well as “white” foods like pasta, cookies and white bread.
5) Reduce your stress.
Stress is just a part of life, but it doesn’t have to hamper you. Pick something to help you deal with the stress you have. Exercise helps, as does meditation and yoga. Sometimes even just talking to a friend about the stress can help, too.
