Pregnancy Diet Plan-A Diet To Get You Started

Have a Fit & Healthy Pregnancy


The first trimester is very important for the mother and the baby. For most women, it is common to find out about their pregnancy after they have missed their menstrual cycle. Since not all women note their menstrual cycle and dates of intercourse, it may cause slight confusion about the exact date of conception. That is why most women find out that they are pregnant only after one month of pregnancy.

It is a generally good practice to note the dates that you have had unprotected sexual intercourse on. This will greatly help the doctor in calculating the date of conception and the date of delivery. Plus, it will help you create a healthy diet plan for yourself and the baby.

As mentioned earlier, the first trimester is the most important and critical one in every pregnancy. A baby develops its vital organs like lungs, brain, and heart, in this trimester. Care taken in this trimester really pays off during the whole pregnancy and even after delivery. You are able to have a healthy baby and keep your body healthy during the whole pregnancy and post-pregnancy period.

 List Of Foods

Listoffoods1During the first trimester, you will gain some weight, but you don’t really need a lot of extra calories. Just increase the daily intake by 200-300 calories. You should be eating foods that are rich in folates. Folate-rich foods contain folic acid, which assists in the baby’s growth. Aside, from eating folate-rich foods, you should also take a daily supplement of folic acid of 400 mcg. Folic acid helps with the baby’s physical development. Examples of folate-rich foods are broccoli, asparagus, oranges, eggs, bran flakes, etc.



Another nutrient that is important during the first trimester is Vitamin A. It helps with the development of the baby’s organs and respiratory, nervous and circulatory Listoffoods2systems. This nutrient should be taken throughout the pregnancy.
