Make sure you are getting plenty of sleep each night. You need around 8 hours. Getting the right amount of sleep will help you to feel good, and it will also help your fetus to grow. During pregnancy many people feel very tired, and it is important to give your body what it needs.

 

If you've never used sunscreen, you may want to start using it during your pregnancy. You should also avoid using a tanning bed. Your skin will be more sensitive during pregnancy. This will increase the chances of sunspots and sunburns. However, make sure that the sunscreen you use contains only chemicals that are safe for your baby.

 

During pregnancy, good dental care is important and so is visiting the dentist. Pregnancy is actually known to cause many dental problems, including gingivitis. Keep brushing and flossing, too. If you have any problems, speak with your dentist.

 

If you smoke, being pregnant is the greatest reason you will ever have to stop smoking so find a way to do it now! As stressful as being pregnant may be, jeopardizing the health of your baby is a million times more stressful. This is a great opportunity to get medical help to quit and have the strongest motivating factor to keep you smoke-free.

 

Try taking your prenatal vitamins at night. These pills, while essential for the proper growth and development of your baby, can make some mothers feel nauseous. Taking them before you lay down or with food can help your body adjust to their effects. If you need to take them during the day, try chewing gum afterwards.

 

Quit smoking as soon as you find out that you're pregnant, and avoid exposure to second-hand smoke. The dangers of cigarette smoke to your baby are so extensive that it is absolutely worth the stress of trying to quit during your pregnancy. The sooner you quit the less extensive the damage will be.

 

Take your iron pills. Many pregnant women will get anemia at some point during their pregnancy. Your body needs a lot of iron reserves for the birth and after when you are breastfeeding. Ask your doctor early about taking an iron supplement to keep your levels high and prevent anemia in the first place.

 

If you get a cold or any other medical condition, try using non-medical remedies. Over-the-counter treatments can harm your baby. Look online for natural remedies that can relieve issues like constipation, nausea, and heartburn. Your doctor will also be very knowledgeable about certain tips and advice.

 

As stated in the beginning of this article, even though pregnancy is supposed to be a magical time, it also has its dark side. Coping with all the terrible side effects can be tough. Hopefully, this article has given you some helpful ideas for battling the "bad side" of pregnancy.
