4 Tips To Decide The Perfect Pregnancy Diet

4 Tips To Decide The Perfect Pregnancy Diet

Pregnancy is a very special time in a woman's life when there is an added focus to take care of yourself and your unborn child. The adage 'You are what you eat' takes on a whole new meaning during this period as it becomes the soon to be mother's responsibility to pack in extra nutrition to nourish her growing bump. Doctors often add in a dose of vitamins to ensure that the both mother and child are well nourished. But beyond that, the food choices you make will maintain a healthy weight gain for you and your baby and eventually even help when you want to shed the extra weight after your child is born.

Here are some tips to have a perfect diet during your pregnancy
Load up on the good stuff: Even if you've always been eating healthy, it is time to crank things up a notch and include more proteins, vitamins, minerals especially folic acid and iron and some extra calories for energy and increase it as you progress in your pregnancy. But eating to get more nutrients doesn't have to mean eating more in general. If you are already at a healthy weight, then you don't need extra calories in the first trimester. In the second trimester, you need about 340 extra calories a day and about 450 extra calories a day in the third trimester. The numbers will change if you are underweight or overweight.

Say no to some: During pregnancy, give a skip to food items like raw sea food and undercooked meat and poultry. This could lead to potentially dangerous infections. Other foods to steer clear from include unpasteurized milk and soft cheese. All of these are possible sources of bacteria that can be harmful to an unborn child. It is always good to give your fruits and veggies a good extra wash, as always. Try to avoid the known culprits like popular local fruits that may be laden with artificial ripeners. Also avoid food with excess oil or preservatives. You will also have to say a complete no to alcohol or smoking during this period. While most sites suggest that you also ditch your caffeine fix, you can best keep it less than 200mg or 12 ounces in a day. Stick to decaffeinated tea and sodas when possible. Some other foods that have to be avoided during pregnancy are packaged food, cold drinks, preserved food items as they contain preservatives, which are harmful. Also, chinese food should be avoided as it contains monosodium gulmate, which is again harmful due to teratogenic chemical.

Diet a big no: Another big no during pregnancy is dieting or controlling the intake of food to lose weight. Pregnancy is the time you actually, for once, get to legally gain weight and be happy about. Don't mess up your natural system with forced diets.

Keep the food coming: Pregnancy is the time for food craving at all odd hours - and the time to give into them without an ounce of guilt! If you are dealing with nausea and food aversion, try to stick to small meals throughout the day. Replace the chips with carrot sticks and the pizza slice with soup. If that sweet tooth starts acting up, give it a frozen fruit desert or shake. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Why some Doc recommends and some not for intercourse in pregnancy? What's the basic behind this?
Dear user. TO CAUSE PREGNANCY on a woman, sperm should be ejaculated inside the vagina or fresh sperm should be inseminated inside the vagina with some means during the fertility period of the woman. There are many determinants of pregnancy. You should be sexually matured. Your partner should be sexually matured. The period of your partner should be in the fertile stage. Her egg and your sperm cells should healthy enough. Then her uterus should be capable to get conceived. If all these were satisfied, the pregnancy could be a result. In the given case, there are less chances of pregnancy. Take care.

Hello- If your pregnancy is considered high-risk, you have had a previous miscarriage or have experienced bleeding during this pregnancy, you should avoid sex in first three months. However with the changes in female body, she may find that sex as you know it, is no longer comfortable. In the first trimester many women find the missionary position uncomfortable because of their tender breasts. Other women find deep penetration uncomfortable. If this is the case, it is best to be upfront about this with your partner and work together to find a way that you can both be comfortable.

Body Contouring - For the Perfect Sculpted Look

Body Contouring - For the Perfect Sculpted Look

Not sure if there is anyone who is happy with their image, different people have different complaints. Fat thighs, fat upper arms, too thin legs, sagging breasts, pot belly, the list is just too long. While exercise and diet can be used to achieve overall fitness levels, they cannot produce the body shape that you have in mind (simulating your celebrity body part maybe). Almost all complaints revolve around the excess fat (in most cases) and about the quality of the skin.

However, there are various surgical methods which can produce results that are amazingly quick, effective, and safe. Body contouring is usually done by removing excess fat deposits and skin from various parts of the body. The skin also gets tightened during the process, also reducing cellulite. While most women complain about thighs and hips, men complain about their stomach area.

Some of the common body sculpting procedures includes:

  1. Arm lifts: With age, there is excessive fat accumulation and sagging of the upper arm, which can be corrected by removing excess fat. Contrarily, thin arms can be helped by using biceps implants.
  2. Tummy tucks: The excess skin and fat is removed from the tummy area and the muscles are tightened to produce a firmer look
  3. Thigh lift: Another common area of concern, the tone is improved by removing excess, loose skin.
  4. Pectoral implants: Can be used in men who desire muscular chests.
  5. Butt lifts and butt implants: These are used to alter the shape of the buttocks, either reducing it or firming it up.

In all these body contouring procedures, liposuction is the common technique.

Is it for you? If you are in overall good health with good thick and elastic skin, go for it. However, have realistic expectations by having a detailed discussion with the doctor. It will definitely help in fat removal, cellulite reduction and skin tightening; however, the key is to set a common goal and work towards it.

As the periods come on proper time but the amount of menstrual flow is very low and do not last for 2-3 days. It means that your hormones that control the the periods (menstruation) have normal cycle but the amount of hormones are less than normal that's why the flow is scanty. *for normal & adequate menstrual flow get up early in the morning and take a fast walk for atleast 15 -20 minutes. If you can run, then run atleast for 3-5 minutes. * practice bhujangasana (cobra postion) & pawanmuktasana everyday only under the guidance of yoga expert. * check out your thyroid profile & in case of abnormal reports get the proper treatment of it. * monitor your weight & if you are overweight then do more physical activities & change lifestyle to reduce the weight so that the peroids get normal. * eat more green leafy vegetables & avoid fast foods having high refined starch & fat. * you can take dashmoolarisht for your scanty periods only under the supervision of ayurvedic doctor. It can make your hormones level normal and make your periods regular.

Hi lybrate-user. your husband shud ejaculate inside your vagina. Putting the sperms that way won't help you conceive. Also it shud clash with your ovulation period if you wish to conceive.

I am prescribing you the best natural treatment: start drinking cow milk twice a day in morning and before sleeping, put 1 table spoon cow ghee in your milk and half table spoon haldi (turmeric), firstly the white discharge will stop coming, you will have a healthy baby, thirdly delivery will be normal not cesarean. Eat all green vegetables if you have stone problem avoid spinach and beetroot, in fruits eat apple, banana, grapes, you can consume frsh juices also not tetra packs, drink 3 to 4 liters water everyday and make sure you are not drinking water after meals, drink water after 90 minutes of your meals, do lots of pranayam, the best uterus exercise is atta peesne ki chakki, if you can purchase atta peesne ki chakki, it will be best for you, you can use it till 7 th month pregnancy. Avoid processed food, sugar and its products as well as refined oil/double refined oil. Use pure oil of mustard (sarso), peanut, coconut, cow ghee, sesame. In the morning start consuming lukewarm water right after you wake up & sitting in sukhasaan (chaukdi) it is advisable to even do rinsing with the lukewarm water in your mouth and drink sip by sip instead of drinking quickly. This process is done for the detoxification and cleaning of your stomach/intestines that has everything to with your pregnancy. After this your stomach condition will remain intact at ph7 (which is not alkaline or acidic in nature but normal). Thanks.

How to do sex with virgin girl? What precautions we should take while doing sex with virgin?

PGD IN ULTRAASONOGRAPHY, Non invasive cardiology course, MD - Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Narnaul
Every girl will be in some pain their first time some worse than others like for me it was unbearable and I had to make my bf stop it hurt so much and some girls barely feel a thing so who knows maybe she won't hurt so much but something that helps is TONS of foreplay I can't stress that enough she needs to be very wet. Start off with just kissing and you should know how that goes whatever turns her on the most do that finger her start of with one finger then 2 then 3 see how that goes play with her touch her anything and you get some lube (you should know what to do their) and before you put it in ask her if she's ready make sure she knows what your about to do once she says she's ready put it in not all the way just a little watch her face see if she looks like she's in pain ask her if she's ok and then go a little further kiss her and try to take her mind off the pain it will go away but sometimes it takes a while just make sure your slow and gentle and only speed up if she gives you the ok to do so and be prepared to stop if she asks because she might like I said just make sure she's really wet and go slow put a little in at a time and you should be fine :) good luck hope I helped!
