What To Do and Not Do When Pregnant

I am surrounded with pregnant people: my sister, my store attendant and close family friend. And, surprising though, whenever I wander around malls or somewhere else, I keep seeing bulging women. So, I think it is only fitting to write about pregnancy for expectant mothers and family.

But, what can expectant mothers avoid when pregnant. Here is my short list:

  • No drinking, smoking or illegal drugs;
  • No raw meat as it may contain bacteria, toxoplasmosis, and salmonella that can affect your unborn baby;
  • No raw eggs which have similar adverse effects from meat;
  • No eating of big fish like shark, tuna and other carnivore fish that may contain high mercury level;
  • Stay clear from stress – inducing tasks or activities like difficult jobs or fights and alike;
  • Exercise fit for you as pregnant;
  • Wear comfy clothes and footwear;
  • Take enough vitamins and minerals which can boost healthy baby development and safe pregnancy;
