1st Trimester

Need some information.

I made my first appointment for my OBGYN but they can't see me until September 4th. I'll be 12 weeks by then and I just want to make sure I'm doing things right. I'm taking my prenatal vitamins. Anything else I should do? Thanks for your help!

    lol, Plus look up medications that are okay to take during pregnancy. Not everyone knows that motrin/aspirin/pretty much every NSAID is not okay during pregnancy. If you drink coffee/caffeinated drinks stay under 200 mg if you can. Try to eat right and get some activity in as best you can. You can contact you OBGYN thought right? I'd ask about nausea meds or interventions if you so need them.

    Mabenner is wise.

    Look into taking DHA supplements if your prenatal doesn't have it in them

    Since they are making you wait I would def leave a message for the doctor and have him/her call you re: any concerns that you may have such as what medications are ok to take b/c I know I had a ton of questions once I found out that I was pregnant and I wanted to hear what my doctor said not some doctor online that didn't know my history

    I totally forgot to come back and leave real advice. Well, don't forget to not smoke crack.  Don't take Advil, don't drink booze, drink LOTS of water, stay active if you are in relatively good health, and get lots of rest.
