Avoid hot tubs and excess heat when you become pregnant. Being in so much heat can be harmful to your baby. Certain spa oils tend to trigger contractions, especially in the initial two trimesters. Clary sage, rosemary and juniper are three that should be avoided.

When you are pregnant, it can be hard for you to sleep. During the third trimester, this become less comfortable which may add to the not sleeping problem. Exercise is a good way to keep leg cramps at bay. At night, avoid drinking a lot of liquids because that would wake you up at night frequently for the restroom.

You should have some basic knowledge about each trimester and know about the potential problems that can arise. Take webpage charge of your health during this special time.

Don't worry about declining certain invitations for social gatherings during pregnancy. Your family and friends will understand the fact that you have other things to take care of.

If you don't really feel all that great, stop pushing yourself.
