When you ask a woman who will be a mother soon about the best phase of her pregnancy journey. In that case, there will be the highest chances that she will answer the second trimester of the pregnancy as she is left out with all the discomforts, morning sickness and all other exhausted feelings she felt in the first trimester. During this trimester, your baby starts growing faster, and you may feel the movement or kicks of your baby.
The second trimester is the safest period you can have during your pregnancy. It starts from the 13 weeks and ends on the 26 weeks from the day of your conception with lots of hopes, ups and downs. However, even if you're feeling comfortable, it has been said that you should take some common precautions to have a healthy pregnancy with all positives and stay stress-free during pregnancy.
Avoid alcohol and smoking
Smoking and alcohol may harm your baby inside the womb and lead to abnormalities like miscarriage and bleeding during pregnancy. Avoid activities that may risk the cost of life.
Reduce the intake of Caffeine
One or two cups of coffee is okay, but more than that is not good for your baby's growth throughout the pregnancy.
Avoid eating processed and junk food as old food creates bacteria on the food that will not support a healthy pregnancy. Eat fresh and newly cooked food, full of nutrients.
Avoid sauna baths
During the second trimester of your pregnancy, an increase in weight may cause back pain and body ache, and to cure it, hot water sauna baths is not the solution. Avoid hot water baths during pregnancy.
Do’s that make you feel good during the second trimester of your pregnancy
It’s good that you’re feeling good during the second trimester of your pregnancy and your body is more active and working harder for baby development. Drink water and juices to keep yourself hydrated.
Continue your exercise routine
Continue with your exercise routine; make sure not to do strength exercises that may hurt your stomach. Exercising during pregnancy is a trick to have a stress free pregnancy.
Check your medications
Being regular with your medication is essential for your baby's growth and development. Rather focusing more on supplements and medicine for proper nutrition, focus on a healthy diet.
Check your gestational diabetes
Many women have gestational diabetes during the second trimester of their pregnancy. Keep an eye on the symptoms like dehydration, tiredness, fatigue, blurred vision, etc., keep your doctor in the loop about any of the symptoms you’re experiencing.
Watch your weight gain chart
During this period, your weight gain speeds up as your baby grows in the womb. Keep watching your weight; if you have significantly lower or higher weight, consult with a doctor.
Eating healthy and nutritional foods is essential during the second trimester of pregnancy for better growth and development of your future baby. Check the healthy diet for the second trimester.
Before the baby arrives, this is the time when you pamper yourself, do activities that make you happy, like shopping, painting, reading, singing, etc., that you love to do the most. Spend time with yourself.
Stay active and have an enjoyable pregnancy with exercises and meditation. Ask your doctor before you start. Staying active will help to prepare you for childbirth and have an intelligent baby.
