Diet & Exercise

Yes, you now have a baby growing inside of you. But, that doesn't mean doubling up the calories. A healthy balanced diet in portions throughout the day should help you manage your cravings and weight management. Frequent vomiting can leave your body dehydrated. So, have 8 glasses of water each day.

Never forget to warm up, stretch and cool down during your workouts. 15 minutes of cardio at a low pace on the treadmill or elliptical machine is a great start. Stick to lightweights and avoid intense workouts like CrossFit. Jogging at a low pace can regulate blood flow. Never overdo and stop immediately to consult a doctor if you experience sharp pain, shortness of breath, faintness, vaginal bleeding, dizziness or uterine contractions while or after exercises.
