Diet during Pregnancy

1st-3rd month:

(Fruits, Calcium, Vegetables and Water)
Calcium is very important for both your baby and your own bones and teeth. An easy way to include calcium in your diet is to eat and drink pasteurized dairy products such as milk, yogurt, cheese and ice cream. Be sure to drink plenty of water, and eat plenty of raw fruits, vegetables, whole grain breads and bran breakfast cereal to make sure your bowel movements are regular.

4th month:

During pregnancy, need of iron increases in your body, so to be sure you get enough iron, eat meats, whole grain breads, leafy green vegetables, beans and dried fruits.

5th month:

Make it sure to eat food which carried more Vitamin C, so it is important to get a fresh supply every day because your body does not store Vitamin C. Good sources of Vitamin C are broccoli, tomatoes and oranges.

6th & 7th month:

You may find crave from foods smell or taste bad, even before your pregnancy you liked that food so much. Try to find substitutes that provide the right nutrients if it happens.

8th & 9th month:

It is still important what you eat. Taking a warm shower before bed also helps to relax you and make you sleepy, and if you have trouble sleeping, try drinking something warm and lying on your side with pillows to support your body.
