Pregnancy sure is a demanding state, not only psychologically but also physically. The body is adapting itself to nurture a baby within itself, so it’s important to ensure adequate nutrition is being supplied to the mother and to the developing fetus. To meet the extra requirements of the fetus, the mother needs extra food and nutrients. But that doesn’t mean one would gobble up everything that comes on the way, as is generally practiced in Indian societies. The below guide will help you prepare a much-balanced diet for you, making sure you are getting sufficient nutrients during various stages of your pregnancy. Normally, a non-pregnant, non-lactating woman requires 1900kcal each day as a part of a healthy diet. When pregnant, the requirement increases to +600kcal, i.e. 2500kcal each day. You can divide your food accordingly but make sure to follow the healthy rules by Bansal Global Hospital: Choose food from different food groups: You might like some things better than the other but make sure you include food from different food groups. In a day, you need to have: About 9 servings of cereals and millets. (Of 30-35gms each) 5 servings of fruits and vegetables. (100gm each) 5 portions of milk and milk products. (100gm each) 2 portions of pulses (30gm each) 1 portion of meat, egg, etc. (30gm) 5 portions of fats and sugars. (10gm each) Take extra care of hygiene: It is very important to take extra care of hygienic. Make sure the food is prepared under hygienic conditions in the kitchen and fruits and vegetables are washed properly before use as harmful bacteria like Listeria and Toxoplasmagondii present in them can contaminate the food. Make sure the food is thoroughly cooked: Pregnant women are exceedingly prone to salmonella infections. Therefore, food must be cooked properly before serving, especially, poultry, eggs, and meat. Balance your cravings: Even though it’s normal to have cravings during this period, don’t indulge yourself in having too much of junk or unhygienic food preparations. Spicy foods should also be avoided. If you are having cravings for inedible items like clay, soil, chalk, etc. you must consult your gynecologist immediately. Take proper supplements: Apart from the diet you take, it’s important to take up some supplements to cover up energy requirements. Normally Vitamin A supplements are given to pregnant women. De-warming supplements are also advised in some cases. It is advised to keep in constant touch with your gynecologist with regular checkups. Take supplements only on the medical recommendation of your gynecologist, as different bodies demand different medication. There are some particular precautionary measures/tips; you will need to follow according to the stage of pregnancy you are going through. Here’s what you need to be aware of when it comes to food habits during pregnancy: Complete Dietary Recommendation Guide for Pregnant Women First Trimester Take a small amount of food frequently: As the body changes, you will need to be careful to accommodate those changes to your body. Taking a small amount of food at a time will reduce a feeling of nausea and sickness that pregnant woman often feels at this stage. Take adequate Calcium: Increase the intake of calcium foods in your diet (dairy foods) as it encourages healthy bone development which is very important for your changing body. Second Trimester Increase Iron Intake: Iron is an essential component for the growth of red blood cells. Generally, women should take iron rich food throughout their pregnancy but it should be more during the second trimester as the baby is developing its own supply of red blood cells. Vitamin C intake: To absorb the excess Iron in your body, you will require eating Vitamic C rich foods like berries, kiwi, broccoli, and citrus fruits. Third Trimester Avoid acidic food: Heart burn is one of the symptoms you often feel during this stage as the baby gets bigger and puts pressure on the mother’s body. To reduce it, you might want to avoid the intake of acidic food in your diet. As an end note, remember it is not only until delivery that you need to follow a healthy diet, it’s equally, if not more, important as it was during your pregnancy. Your body needs to replenish post-partum and you also need to lactate well to feed your baby. Therefore, ensure that you continue your healthy diet even after the delivery.
6 Most Common Misconceptions about Pregnancy. As it often turns out, the moment someone gets the news that you are pregnant, there comes a rain of advices! Of course, some of them are well meaning, but the best advice you can get is don’t follow any amateur’s advice. Moreover, the chain of this opinion giving has so much impact, that there are a few things which have eventually held their place for being true, even when they aren’t. In this segment, BGH brings you the 10 most common misconceptions about Pregnancy you need to stop believing. Number 1: You should now eat for two. Explanation: An absolute no. Being pregnant doesn’t mean you should be gobbling up food all the time because you are now ‘double’. That’s not true. Yes, you need to take some extra calories for proper development of the baby but that doesn’t mean you should be eating twice over. To know your diet better, click here. (Provide the link for pregnancy diet article) Number2: You should be at complete rest during pregnancy. Explanation: Many Indian families go crazy when any member of the family is pregnant. Well, that’s their way of showing love and that’s totally fine until they make you bed ridden all the time. Moving around and exercising (at expert recommendation) is in fact good for your mental and physical well being. It also helps keep a check on your weight gain. So, it’s completely healthy to take a stroll or two in the mornings and evenings and further exercise to keep you fit. Number3: You can determine the sex of the baby by the way shape of your stomach. Explanation: It is believed that if a woman is carrying low it is a boy and if she is carrying high, it’s a girl. This conception has no scientific basis. The shape of your belly depends on the position of fetus and your muscle size and structure. It has nothing to do with the sex of the baby. Number4: If you suffer from heartburn, you will have a hairy baby. Explanation: It is a common myth that if a woman suffers from heartburn, the baby will be born with lots of hair. It’s far from true. Heartburn is one of the common conditions during pregnancy. You should avoid spicy food to get rid of it. If it’s excessive, you need to book an appointment with your doctor instead of waiting for a hairy baby! Number5: You should not eat papayas during pregnancy. Explanation: You can have papayas during pregnancy but it should be a fully ripe papaya. In fact, ripe papayas are good source of Vitamin C and E. It also contributes in adding fibre and folic acid to your diet. However, unripe papayas are harmful as it has some substances which can cause uterine contractions and create complications. Nowadays, the excessive use of chemicals to ripen fruits faster make it difficult to identify a naturally ripen papaya. Therefore, doctors don’t openly advice to have it in your diet. Number6: Eating certain foods can make your baby dark or fair. Explanation: Some people believe that taking caffeine or iron supplements can make your baby dark and consuming saffron can make it fair. That’s not true. Even though caffeine is generally to be avoided during your pregnancy days (can take small amounts after medical checkup), iron is important for your body. Also, saffron cannot make your baby fairer. The color of the baby depends on the genes of the parents only. There are many other myths and misconceptions that follow but the best way to differentiate and take the best decision is by consulting your gynecologist! If you doubt anything, don’t decide over your instincts and book an appointment at the earliest.
