Whether you're looking to become pregnant or already are, you probably will still face unforeseen things during this time. Using these tips are a good start to learning about pregnancy, its symptoms and signs, and what to expect for nine months.

When you're pregnant, try adding around 300-500 more calories to your everyday diet. You and your baby need food when you're pregnant. Eat good quality, healthy food as much as possible.

You should never smoke while pregnant. If you smoke now, do everything you can to stop before you get pregnant, or as early in your pregnancy as possible. These issues can affect both the mother and the baby. Ectopic pregnancy is more likely. Smokers tend to have increased rates of miscarriage and stillbirth. Additional risks are the baby being born premature and also birth defects.

Talk with your partner regarding the division of responsibilities in child care prior to giving birth. A lot of parents are shocked to learn one parent takes on the bulk of the baby care. Setting and dividing tasks can help each partner to feel important in the upkeep of the baby, and it leads to lowered amounts of resentment in the relationship, too.

During your pregnancy, you'll want to avoid traveling to places that do not have medical care close by. It's crucial that you have access to a doctor during every step of your pregnancy. Also carry a cell phone with local reception if you are traveling out of the country, as this will help you to get care if need be.

If pregnancy is something you want to achieve, begin a workout program. Women taking part in a regular exercise, both prior to becoming pregnant and while pregnant, experience fewer pregnancy-related complications and complete labor in less time. Exercising regularly can reduce the risk of a miscarriage.

Do your kegels. These unnoticeable exercises may be done just about anywhere, in your car, at work, or while you watch tv. Do 10 sets, holding each about 3 seconds. If you do them regularly, they will help make your pelvic floor stronger, which makes for an easier delivery. They may also help you with incontinence problems.

If you often experience mood swings while you are pregnant, yoga or meditation may help. These techniques will help stabilize both your mind and body. Your partner can benefit from this, as well.

Make sure you register for a childbirth class early during pregnancy to ensure you can take a class during the day that works best for you. It is important that you do not procrastinate in doing this. After all, it's always possible that your baby could arrive earlier than planned.

One of the most important times of your life is the time when you are pregnant. Regardless of whether or not your pregnancy is planned, you will want to do everything you can to understand and react properly to the various signs and symptoms you will encounter. Pregnancy, while a very joyous time, can also be rather overwhelming.
