Question: What needs to eat in fisrt or second month of pregnancy and what needs to avoid, can i eat banana??

Question
Answer: Dear in fruits you need to avoid pineapple, papaya and grapes in fruits rest all you can have. Also you need to avoid eating fishes high in mercury and raw meat, eggs and sprouts. Just have a healthy meal lots of vegetables and do not forget about the calcium intake Milk is the best source for calcium. Based on the personal experience I used to take 3 glasses a day during my pregnancy . Eat or drink 4 servings of dairy products or foods rich in calcium. Dairy products are the best source of calcium. Other sources of calcium are dark, leafy greens, fortified cereal, breads, fish, fortified orange juices, almonds and sesame seeds. Sweet potatoes are very rich in beta-carotene, a plant compound that is converted into vitamin A in the body. Broccoli and leafy greens contain most of the nutrients that pregnant women need. They are also rich in fiber, which may help prevent or treat constipation.Whole grains are packed with fiber, vitamins and plant compounds. They are also rich in B-vitamins, fiber and magnesium, all of which pregnant women need. Dried fruit may be highly beneficial for pregnant women, since they are small and nutrient-dense. Just make sure to limit your portions and avoid the candied varieties. Drinking water is important because of the increased blood volume during pregnancy. Adequate hydration may also help prevent constipation and urinary tract infections. Hope it helps.

Question: What to avoid doing in 8th month of pregnancy, and what to eat and what not
Answer: Hello dear, During the third trimester of your pregnancy, the diet that you consume should be focused on the health of your baby who is to arrive soon.Get your required dose of iron and protein from foods like red meat, beans, poultry, seeds and rice...Calcium is important throughout your pregnancy;  Dairy products such as milk, yogurt and foods like oatmeal and salmon are rich sources of calcium. Magnesium will help in absorbing the calcium. Almonds, oat bran, black beans, barley, artichoke, pumpkin seeds, etc., are rich sources of magnesium. DHA is a fatty acid that helps your baby’s brain in developing properly. You can find DHA in foods such as milk, eggs and juices. During the third trimester, folic acid helps decrease the risk of defects of your baby’s neural tube. You can find folic acid in foods that include grains like oatmeal, collards or dark leafy vegetables and fruits like strawberries and oranges.  To prevent constipation, you should consume plenty of fibre-rich foods. You should include vegetables, fruits (fresh and dried), legumes and whole grains in your diet. Do not forget that the water in your digestive tract is rapidly absorbed by fibre, so drink plenty of water and other fluids to replenish your body. To make sure that the iron you take in is properly absorbed in your body, you should eat foods that are rich in vitamin C. Rich sources of this vitamin include citrus fruits such as melons, lemons, and oranges as well as green pepper and broccoli. What Not To Eat.... avoid spicy and fried foods. Take light meal for dinner. Reducing your intake of sodium is also important so keep away from foods high in salt content such as chips, ketchup, canned foods, pickles and sauces, to name a few. Alcohol and tobacco are of course very harmful for your baby so quit while you can! Apart from a healthy diet, it is also important for you to do light or moderate exercises every day. Prenatal yoga, walking and swimming are great activities to prevent fast and excessive weight gain and also help in keeping you strong and fit for delivery. When you make sure that you take care of yourself, you also take care of your little one before he or she comes into this world! Hope it helped, Take care urself...
