Congratulations you‘re pregnant! Taking care of yourself is your top priority in this special moment. Here are the most important things to do on your first month.
FIND AN OB.
As soon as you have confirmed that you are pregnant, make sure to book an appointment with your OB as early as possible. If you are a first time mom, friends and relatives can refer an OB if you haven‘t found any. You can also visit the nearest hospital to find an OB and a schedule that works well with you.
MAKE A PRENATAL APPOINTMENT.
Prenatal check-ups are done to check you and your baby‘s progress as well as health. Make sure to have regular prenatal check-ups so you and your baby can receive the best possible care.
Pregnancy is a nine months journey so you have the time to save money. Having a baby means you are financially responsible parents. You can also look for different hospitals and healthcare providers for their maternity services and packages. Check with your HMO or health insurance if maternity is part of your plan.
EAT WHAT‘S HEALTHY.
What you eat is also the nutrients your baby receives so make sure to have well-balanced meals. Eat foods that are rich in protein, iron, calcium, and folic acid. Top tip: Stay away from caffeine and alcohol.
PREPARE YOURSELF FOR BODY CHANGES.
Expect to have a number of body changes in the coming months. Every woman has their own story on their body changes while pregnant. Knowing and preparing yourself can help you to be more at ease with physical changes.
