Healthy eating during pregnancy is largely the same as it was during your prenatal period - eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and healthy fats to keep your body healthy. It is very important to eat a good breakfast every day. Drink lots of fluids (especially water) to avoid constipation, and stay away from alcohol, raw or undercooked fish, fish that are high in mercury, undercooked meat and poultry, and soft cheeses. Exercise at least 150 minutes a week at a moderate intensity during pregnancy. Here are the top 5 tips for self-care during pregnancy:

Get a little bit of exercise every day

When you exercise, you become tired, which helps you sleep better at night. This is also a great way to reduce stress, which might be a problem during the first trimester. If you are not in the habit of exercising, you might want to ease into it gradually. Walking and yoga are both great activities for first trimesters.

It is best to avoid all stretches that involve deep backbends or other contortions during pregnancy, such as camel pose or bow pose in yoga; you might also experience calf cramps if you point your toes at all during your pregnancy; if that happens, you should flex your feet instead.

Take your prenatal vitamins

During and before pregnancy, a mother-to-be's body requires a certain amount of vitamins and minerals which are contained in prenatal vitamins. Iron plays an important role in the development of the placenta and the developing fetus; it is needed for the body to make blood to deliver oxygen to the developing fetus; iron helps prevent anemia, a condition in which there are too few healthy red blood cells. For a healthy pregnancy, you should take a daily multivitamin as part of your prenatal routine.

Track your weight gain during pregnancy

During pregnancy, keep track of your weight gain and compare it with the recommended ranges for healthy weight gain at the beginning and throughout the pregnancy. It is best to weigh yourself without shoes, wearing light-weight clothing, and on the same scale at the same time each week, with the same set of clothes.

You will probably notice a gradual weight gain between weeks 14 and 27, during your second trimester. During your second trimester, you may be gaining half a pound, then a pound, each week, depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy.

Drink plenty of water

The most important thing you should do during pregnancy is drink between 8 and 12 cups of water per day. Water has many benefits. It aids digestion, aids in the formation of amniotic fluid around the fetus and aids the circulation of nutrients within the body and it helps the expulsion of waste.

There are many benefits to drinking water during pregnancy, such as preventing nausea and vomiting, keeping the body hydrated, and removing wastes from the body. Water helps the body absorb essential nutrients and transports vitamins, minerals, and hormones to blood cells.

Get a good night's sleep

As a pregnant woman, you should get plenty of sleep the night before and then during your pregnancy. Doctors generally recommend that you sleep between eight and ten hours a night during your pregnancy.

If you have a newborn, you'll probably enjoy plenty of sleepless nights, so be sure to get enough while you can. Develop a relaxing bedtime routine. Keep a regular bedtime and wake-up time. Do not use electronics one hour before bedtime. Limit caffeine as much as possible.

 You should avoid raw meat and shellfish while pregnant. Uncooked seafood includes oysters, mussels, and clams. Avoid undercooked or rare meat and poultry, since they can contain toxoplasmosis or salmonella.

Hang in there! This phrase provides a note of support without a lot of pressure. Keep going, you're going to be a great mom!
