Week 6 What To Do

Maintain overall good health to avoid situations that can make you sick. It is time to take some extra precautions. Following care tips can help you to enjoy a healthy pregnancy.

  • Do not lift or move heavy objects. Find someone to help you out.
  • Nothing is more important than the safety of your baby, at this stage. It is better to pass on the duty of cleaning toilet, dealing with bleach, phenyl, or chlorine-containing materials to another family member.
  • Do not allow the morning sickness to turn you into a bedridden. Get dressed and go out to take fresh air once in a while.
  • Instead of taking one big meal, try to eat smaller portions of the meal more often. This will help you eat enough. It will also keep morning sickness at bay as it is worse on an empty stomach.
  • Smoking increases your risk of miscarriage and other complications of pregnancy. So, quit smoking. Excessive drinking can also cause some pregnancy complications. So stop drinking alcohol.
  • It is better to skip the hot tub and sauna because both of them can increase your risk of miscarriage and fetal abnormalities.
