Taking a low-dosage headache medicine before bed can lessen the danger of pre-eclampsia, which can cause untimely birth and, in outrageous cases, maternal and fetal death. A trial, driven by Professor Kypros Nicolaides, Professor of Fetal Medicine at King’s College London, Dr. Liona Poon of King’s College, London with Professor David Wright of the University of Exeter, found that managing low-measurement ibuprofen (150 mg) prompted a 62% decrease in the rate of pre-term preeclampsia, bringing about conveyance before 37 weeks.

During pregnancy many women believe that they should leave all the housework. On the other hand, some women have been brought up as independent women who can work up to the last month of their pregnancy. So to make things clear you should know that pregnancy does not mean you have to leave all the housework but there are some types of housework that you should avoid to protect the both of you. Here are 5 chores pregnant women should ask someone else to do.

1. Changing the Cat Litter: From their adventures of chasing rodents and birds, cats tend to carry the Toxoplasma gondii parasite which can be passed on to the person cleaning the cat’s feces. If you become infected while pregnant, you could pass the illness on to your baby. This can cause serious birth defects such as eye and brain damage. If there isn’t anybody else who can clean the litter for you, ensure that you are well protected by wearing gloves, nose and mouth mask, and preferably an outer coat to protect microbes from sticking to your garments. Have a thorough wash afterward to be on the safe side.

2. Moving Furniture: After the first trimester, moving furniture or other heavy objects can worsen the strain on your back. As you progress in your pregnancy, the growth of the belly tends to stress your back, and for some women, this can lead to acute pain. But if you have to move that chest from one side of the room to the other, make sure to bend from the knees and keep your back straight when lifting. A maternity belt can add extra support.

3. Using Strong Chemicals: Pregnant women should avoid using strong chemicals like mosquito spray, washing liquid in the kitchen and many other washing liquid types that contain highly toxic cleansing chemicals.

The fumes from the cleaning agents are considered harmful for the baby. So even if you will give the task to someone else, ensure that windows and doors are open during cleaning time and that you are in a well-ventilated space to protect yourself and the baby from harsh fumes. In the washing process, you can try all kinds of natural washing liquids such as vinegar, baking soda and lemon.

4. Refinishing Furniture: Some studies have found a possible association between products that contain chemical solvents such as furniture-strippers, paint removers, and varnish and miscarriage and birth defects. To be safe, it’s best not to refinish furniture while pregnant.

If you are trying to conceive, waiting to get a missed period could feel like waiting for ages, while a missed period is one solid indicator that you may be pregnant, there are other early symptoms of pregnancy that can happen earlier than missing your period due to hormonal changes in your body. If you pay close attention to what your body is telling you, you will be able to detect pregnancy easier and before you even get a positive home pregnancy test.
Here are some early pregnancy symptoms to look out for.

1- Tender Breasts.

The first sign you may notice is swollen, heavier than normal tender breasts, these changes happen to your breasts as a result to the changes in estrogen and progesterone levels in your body and can be felt as early as one week after your ovulation, other changes that happen to the breasts also include darkening to the areola and the appearance of tiny spots on it.
The best way to relieve this discomfort is by wearing a proper size supportive bra.

2- Dizziness.

Dizziness or light headedness can be experienced about five days before the date you expect your period to flow, it happens as a result to the increase in progesterone that causes the blood vessels to dilate which in return lowers the blood pressure leading to less blood being delivered to the brain causing temporary dizziness.
To avoid this, don’t get up too quickly from your seat and make sure to not miss a meal or get hungry which can lowers your blood pressure even more.

3- Fatigue.

It is easy to miss this early symptom as you may relate it to normal tiredness, however during the first stages of your pregnancy, your body goes through several hormonal changes that leave you tired and lacking energy, the rise of progesterone causes your muscles to relax which makes you sleepy and it also lowers your blood pressure making you lacking energy.

4- Nausea.

Nausea is maybe the most popular early pregnancy symptom, it also happens as a result to the change in your hormonal levels, this squeakiness in your stomach can strike at just anytime of the day not only morning and according to studies, nausea affects up to 85% of pregnant women, you can start feeling nauseated as little as two weeks after conception.

5- Frequent Urination.

As your body starts reacting to the new hormonal changes during early stages of pregnancy, your blood volume increases which causes your kidneys to work faster and harder to filter the extra blood in your body, causing your bladder to get full more frequent, you may also notice your increased thirst. Frequent urination is common through all stages of pregnancy and it will even increase as your pregnancy progress.

Expectant moms require not be worried that they are more inclined to create melanoma, or will have a more awful guess on the off chance that they do get this genuine skin tumor, than ladies who are not pregnant, as indicated by study comes about distributed online as an “article in press” on the Journal of the American College of Surgeons site in front of print production.

For quite a long time there has been some conviction that pregnancy adverse effects the course of melanoma, expanding the danger of its advancement, capacity to spread all through the body, and repeat, said consider coauthor Mark Faries, MD, FACS, who was chief of restorative immunology at the John Wayne Cancer Institute, Santa Monica, Calif. at the time the review was conducted. For this review, Dr. Faries and partners recognized 156 ladies who had created melanoma amid pregnancy.

They examined quiet variables, for example, age, arrange at analysis, histologic sort, Breslow thickness (an estimation of how profound the tumor is), and ulceration. To decide if this long held conviction is valid, agents from John Wayne Cancer Institute used their organization’s melanoma database to break down information on 2,025 ladies age 18 to 50 determined to have organize I to IV melanoma who were dealt with at their establishment in the vicinity of 1971 and 2016.the specialists found that repeat rates were comparable between the two gatherings.

They found that patient components were comparable for pregnancy-related melanomas and non-pregnancy related melanomas with no critical contrasts in Breslow thickness, histologic sort, or where the tumor initially showed up on the skin. There was likewise no distinction in stage at analysis, by and large.

“Pregnant patients ought to be screened for melanoma in a comparable way to non-pregnant patients and ought to be advised that their guess is not antagonistically influenced by pregnancy. This finding ought to be extremely consoling to both the patients and doctors who are included in their care.

“This contemplate overturns the long held conviction that pregnancy and melanoma are an unfriendly blend. Rather, it demonstrates that the visualization for patients who are pregnant is not the same as patients who are not pregnant, Dr. Faries clarified.

A reasonable and broadly accessible medication could spare the lives of one in three moms who might somehow or another bleed to death after labor, as indicated by a noteworthy review distributed in The Lancet. The medication, called tranexamic corrosive (TXA), works by preventing blood clumps from separating.

The discoveries likewise demonstrate it lessened the requirement for dire surgery to control dying (laparotomy) by more than a third (36%).The worldwide trial of 20,000 ladies found that passing because of bleeding was diminished by 31% if the treatment was given inside three hours.

All of the deaths from baby blues bleed are in low-and center pay nations. Albeit conceiving an offspring in a wellbeing office builds the shot of surviving baby blues discharge, ladies still bite the dust from the condition even inside doctor’s facilities. Tim Knott, Senior Partner in Innovations at Wellcome Trust, stated: “All around, extreme bleeding in labor stays one of the primary drivers of maternal demise – with disturbing quantities of ladies passing on in some low-and center pay nations.

The WOMAN Trial group attempted a colossally essential and fantastically yearning review. Their work stands to have a basic effect in avoiding ladies kicking the bucket after childbirth.”Haleema Shakur, Associate Professor of Clinical Trials at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and Project Director on the WOMAN Trial, stated: “We now have vital confirmation that the early utilization of tranexamic corrosive can spare ladies’ lives and guarantee more kids grow up with a mother. It’s sheltered, moderate and simple to regulate, and we trust that specialists will utilize it as ahead of schedule as conceivable after the onset of serious bleeding after labor.

” While the WOMAN Trial found that tranexamic corrosive essentially diminished passing because of dying, it didn’t avoid hysterectomy. The scientists say this is on account of in low-and center salary nations where blood supplies are restricted, a hysterectomy is in some cases completed quickly after the onset of extremely serious baby blues discharge to spare the mother’s life.

This implies there is no time for tranexamic corrosive to have an effect. Current World Health Organization rules, in light of the past injury examine, prescribe the utilization of tranexamic corrosive in baby blues discharge as a resulting treatment alternative if uterotonics (medications to prompt compressions) neglect to control the dying, or if the bleeding is thought to be because of injury.

The technique, known as hysterosalpingography (HSG), is a color trial of the fallopian tubes led under X-beam. The methodology was first completed in 1917, and since the 1950s both water-based and oil-based arrangements have been used. “Our comes about have been much more energizing than we could have anticipated, affirming that a well-established therapeutic procedure still has an essential place in present day drug,” he says.

Actually, regardless we don’t generally comprehend why there is an advantage, just that there is an advantage from this strategy, specifically for ladies who don’t present with whatever other treatable fertility manifestations,” Professor Mol says.

Results indicate clear advantages of oil-based arrangement: The oil-based item utilized as a part of the review was Lipiodol® Ultra-Fluid, an iodized arrangement of unsaturated fats from poppy seeds. This item is as of now accessible in 47 nations around the world. The rates of effective pregnancy were essentially higher in the oil-based gathering, and after just a single treatment. This is an essential result for ladies who might have had no other strategy other than to look for IVF treatment. It offers new would like to barren couples,” Professor Mol says.

” IN this investigation of all births – live births and stillbirths – in British Columbia (BC) in the vicinity of 2009 and 2013, specialists taken a gander during childbirth results among ladies who experienced elective fetal diminishment of multifetal pregnancy contrasted and multifetal pregnancies without such decrease. Among the 208 827 ladies who conceived an offspring amid the review time frame, 95 (0.04%) experienced fetal decrease, with 45 ladies conveying twins and 50 conveying singletons.

Women who experienced fetal reduction will probably be more established and of a higher financial status and fundamentally more probable (75% contrasted and 3.3%) to have experienced fertility treatment. The creators take note of that they had constrained points of interest on the planning, reason and number of embryos diminished in a few pregnancies.

They take note of that doctors should be delicate while examining the dangers and advantages of fetal diminishment with guardians. “Clinicians directing ladies with multifetal pregnancy ought to know about the potential for considerable parental anxiety coming about because of fetal decrease techniques, including negative emotions, for example, blame, lament and anguish,” the creators finish up.

Scientists might be one stage nearer to deciding the reason for schizophrenia, in the wake of revealing an irregular hereditary process related with the sickness that starts in the womb. As indicated by the National Institute of Mental Health, around 1.1 percent of grown-ups in the United States have schizophrenia – a psychological well-being turmoil described by mind flights, fancies, and anomalous contemplations. While the correct reasons for schizophrenia stay hazy, analysts have long realized that the condition can keep running in families, recommending a hereditary cause. Besides, an expanding number of studies have revealed hereditary changes related with an expanded danger of schizophrenia.

By changing skin cells from patients with schizophrenia into neuronal ancestor cells – cells that shape neurons in early advancement – specialists recognized an irregular quality pathway called atomic FGFR1 (nFGFR1) that hinders early cerebrum development.

Senior think about creator Michal K. Stachowiak, Ph.D., of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo in New York, and partners say that their discoveries may convey us nearer to medications that could counteract schizophrenia in utero.For their review, Stachowiak and associates looked to take in more about the genomic forms that happen in utero that may impact the danger of schizophrenia development. To achieve their discoveries, the specialists gathered skin cells from four grown-ups with schizophrenia and four grown-ups without the turmoil.

As indicated by the creators, these discoveries give verification of idea that schizophrenia might be brought on by a dysregulated genomic pathway that impacts the cerebrum before birth. The skin cells were reinvented into initiated pluripotent undifferentiated organisms, and these separated into neuronal ancestor cells. This empowered the group to survey the procedures that happen amid early mental health in individuals with schizophrenia.

“Over the most recent 10 years, hereditary examinations concerning schizophrenia have been tormented by an always expanding number of changes found in patients with the ailment. We appear interestingly that there is, for sure, a typical, dysregulated quality pathway at work here.” In future reviews, the specialists plan to develop “smaller than expected brains” utilizing similar procedures utilized as a part of the present review, with the point of picking up a more profound comprehension of how dysregulation of the nFGFR1 pathway impacts early mental health, and additionally to give a model to test conceivable treatments.

Furthermore, the group says that these discoveries open the way to new schizophrenia medications. For instance, a medication could be regulated to expecting moms, whose posterity has a high danger of creating schizophrenia that counteracts forms identified with the infection happening in the creating baby.

Another review joins getting one’s period at an untimely age to creating gestational diabetes further down the road. As indicated by a 2014 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2010 GD allegedly influenced more than 9 percent of ladies who conceived an offspring that year. The condition more often than not influences the mother in the late phases of her pregnancy, after the infant has completely created.

Therefore, it doesn’t bring about birth surrenders or other formative issues in the infant. Nonetheless, untreated GD can build the levels of glucose in the child, and constrain the baby to create more insulin to handle the glucose. The outcome is regularly fetal macrosomia, or an overweight child, which may put the infant at danger of weight or diabetes type 2.

Analyst and study co-creator Danielle Schoenaker reports that ladies who had their first period at age 11 or more youthful had a 50 percent higher danger of creating GD than the individuals who had their first period when they were 13 or older. The group analyzed information from more than 4,700 ladies selected in the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health.

Generally speaking, the analysts found that a fundamentally higher number of ladies who had their first period at a prior age went ahead to create diabetes amid pregnancy. Schoenaker remarks on the criticalness of the discoveries, saying that they “could imply that wellbeing experts will begin asking ladies when they had their first period to distinguish those at higher danger of gestational diabetes.”

The factual connection stayed solid even after the analysts balanced for body mass file (BMI) and early life, regenerative, and other way of life variables. Schoenaker additionally noticed the significance of further reviews for understanding the motivation behind why early period onset may prompt to diabetes amid pregnancy. A survey of accessible research interfaces early pubescence in young ladies with pathologies including insulin resistance, hypothyroidism, an inadequacy of development hormones, and hyperplasia.

Weight likewise appears to be predominant among young ladies with intelligent adolescence, and one review found that as much as 81 percent of the young ladies had extra endocrine issues. At long last, different reviews inspected have connected early adolescence to cardiovascular issues, for example, hypertension and higher cholesterol. “Huge extents of ladies who create diabetes amid pregnancy are overweight or hefty, and empowering those with an encouraging start of pubescence to control their weight before pregnancy may bring down their danger of gestational diabetes.

It’s outstanding that we watched a critical contrast in BDNF in ladies of various races,” said Lisa M. Christian, a partner teacher of psychiatry in the Institute for Behavioral Medicine Research at Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center and chief examiner of the review.

Scientists took blood serum tests amid and after pregnancy from 139 ladies and watched that BDNF levels dropped impressively from the first through the third trimesters, and in this manner expanded at baby blues. In general, dark ladies showed altogether higher BDNF than white ladies amid the perinatal period.Controlling for race, bring down BDNF levels at both the second and third trimesters anticipated more noteworthy depressive manifestations in the third trimester.

Likewise, ladies conveying low versus sound weight newborn children indicated fundamentally bring down BDNF in the third trimester, however didn’t vary in depressive manifestations anytime amid pregnancy, which proposes isolate impacts.

“The uplifting news is there are some great approaches to address the issue,” Christian said. “Energizer drugs have been appeared to expand BDNF levels. This might be proper for some pregnant ladies, yet is not without potential dangers and side effects.””Luckily, another extremely successful approach to build BDNF levels is through work out,” she said.” With endorsement from your doctor, remaining physically dynamic amid pregnancy can help keep up BDNF levels, which has benefits for a lady’s disposition, and in addition for her infant’s advancement.”

Notwithstanding the required expansion of folic acid to enhanced grain items in the United States, numerous ladies still don’t expend sufficient measures of this essential vitamin, as indicated by an article composed by Laura E. Mitchell, Ph.D., teacher in the Department of Epidemiology, Human Genetics and Environmental Sciences at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UT-Health) School of Public Health.

At the point when taken proceeding and amid early pregnancy, folic acid is known to diminish the danger of having a child influenced with a neural tube deformity. Neural tube abandons incorporate anencephaly, a condition in which an infant is conceived without parts of the cerebrum and skull, and spina bifida, which happens when the spinal string and the bones encompassing the spine don’t frame appropriately. In the United States, around 1,200 pregnancies are influenced by anencephaly and 1,500 children are conceived with spina bifida every year, as indicated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“Since neural tube abandons happen in the initial couple of weeks of pregnancy, it is imperative for ladies to take the prescribed measure of folic acid before they get to be distinctly pregnant. Since roughly one-portion of pregnancies in the United States are spontaneous, the USPSTF proposal holds for all regenerative age ladies, regardless of whether they are arranging a pregnancy, so that all pregnancies advantage from this preventive measure,” Mitchell said.

Despite the fact that the USPSTF proposal on folic acid supplementation has not changed since the team’s earlier report in 2009, the present report considered new confirmation acquired after compulsory folic acid fortress of the nation’s nourishment supply. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ordered folic acid stronghold of grain items, for example, enhanced flour and bread, in January 1998.

Nonetheless, information from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey demonstrate that even with fortress, about a fourth of all conceptive age ladies have folate levels that are problematic to forestall neural tube abandons. Encourage, ladies who don’t take folic acid supplements are roughly three circumstances more inclined to have problematic folate levels contrasted with ladies who take supplements.

“Indeed, even in the time of compulsory folic acid stronghold of the nourishment supply, taking an everyday supplement remains a basic procedure for ladies to ensure they are getting enough folic acid,” Mitchell said. In spite of the fact that the USPSTF’s proposal about folic acid supplementation has been set up since 2009, the extent of ladies who take after the suggestions stays low. Indeed, even among ladies with planned pregnancies, less than half take an everyday folic acid supplement preceding pregnancy.

Youngsters destined to moms who take indigestion pills amid pregnancy may have a more serious danger of creating asthma; a study suggests .Those whose moms had been endorsed meds to treat heartburn amid pregnancy will probably be dealt with for asthma in adolescence, a survey of studies found. Specialists say that the affiliation could be brought on by a different, connected element and that further research is expected to figure out if the prescriptions influence the soundness of kids.

Drugs called H2-receptor enemies and proton pump inhibitors can obstruct this heartburn. They are viewed as sheltered to use in pregnancy since they don’t influence improvement of the baby. Scientists had already recommended that utilization of these pharmaceuticals may build the danger of sensitivities in the unborn child through affecting immunity. Studies to research a connection have been uncertain.

Specialists drove by the Universities of Edinburgh and Tampere in Finland explored eight past reviews including more than 1.3 million children. The group observed that youngsters destined to moms who had been recommended acid blocking drugs amid pregnancy were no less than 33% more prone to have gone to a specialist for manifestations of asthma.

Professor Aziz Sheik, Co-executive of the Asthma UK Center for Applied Research at the University of Edinburgh, stated: “Our review reports a relationship between the onset of asthma in kids and their moms’ utilization of corrosive smothering pharmaceutical amid pregnancy. Stress that this affiliation does not demonstrate that the solutions brought on asthma in these kids and further research is expected to better comprehend this connection.” Dr.

Samantha Walker, Director of Policy and Research at Asthma UK, stated: “stretch that this examination is at an early stage and hopeful mums ought to keep on taking any pharmaceutical they require under the direction of their specialist or nurse. “We don’t yet know whether the acid reflux drug itself is adding to the improvement of asthma in youngsters, or if there is normal variable we haven’t found yet that causes both indigestion in pregnant ladies and asthma in their kids.

The review focuses us towards something that necessities advance examination which is the reason we have to see more research did into the reasons for asthma, a condition that influences 5.4 million individuals in the UK alone.

As indicated by a little new review, pregnancy causes changes in a lady’s mind that seem to improve her readiness to administer to her youngster, say specialists in Spain. Their new review is the first to demonstrate that pregnancy and labor include durable changes—for no less than two years a short time later—in the structure of a lady’s mind. It’s for some time been realized that pregnancy causes hormonal and compound moves all through the body, yet as of recently its effect on the mind has remained to a great extent a secret.

To explore, researchers performed intellectual tests and (MRI) mind checks on 25 first-time moms, both before they got to be distinctly pregnant and after they conceived an offspring. The review additionally included 19 of their male partners. At the point when the scientists looked at previously, then after the fact sweeps of the new mothers, they saw a diminishment in dim matter in mind areas connected with social discernment, which includes the capacity to see what others are thinking and feeling. This diminishment was not found in the new fathers or the non-guardians.

This kind of pruning likewise occurs amid puberty. In young people, it’s by and large viewed as “a fundamental procedure of calibrating associations into networks,” the creators composed, which is “basic for solid subjective, passionate, and social improvement.”

Co-creator Oscar Vilarroya, MD, a neuroscientist at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), said in an announcement that the discoveries indicate “a versatile procedure identified with the advantages of better distinguishing the requirements of the kid, for example, recognizing the infant’s passionate state.” For the new mothers, additionally imaging tests demonstrated that the mind areas where they lost dim matter covered with ones that “lit up” when the ladies watched pictures of their own children. These progressions were still unmistakable in sweeps taken two years after they’d conceived an offspring, which was the last follow-up point in the review.

The progressions were distinct to the point that mind examines alone were sufficient to uncover, with awesome unwavering quality, whether a lady had been pregnant or not. They were even ready to anticipate moms’ level of connection to their children after they were conceived. Gratefully, the loss of dark matter did not have all the earmarks of being connected with any subjective imperfections or changes in memory for the new mothers.

Or maybe, as co-lead creator and UAB scientist Erika Barba-Müller said in the public statement, “these progressions concern cerebrum territories connected with capacities important to deal with the difficulties of parenthood.”

Amid pregnancy, to be infected with this season’s flu virus is less secure than regular. Amid the 2009 episode of H1N1 flu, for instance, pregnant ladies made up 5 percent of all U.S. deaths because of the infection, in spite of constituting just around 1 percent of the populace at the time.

Luckily, there are ways pregnant ladies can shield themselves from this season’s cold virus, specialists say. “The [flu] vaccine is the No. 1 need for any pregnant lady,” said Dr. Regan Theiler, the division chief of general OB-GYN at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire. “It’s exceptionally powerful, and does secure the mother, as well as the antibodies exchange over the placenta and ensure the infant for the initial six months of life.”

A noteworthy reason pregnant ladies who get this season’s cold virus are at high hazard may just be that their heart and lungs are as of now saddled, Theiler said. Pregnant ladies “are kind of utilizing all their capacity to take in oxygen and move their blood around,” she told Live Science. When the influenza infection assaults the cells of the respiratory framework, the extra weight might be an excessive amount to endure, Theiler said. Demise from influenza regularly comes on the grounds that the infection opens up the open door for microscopic organisms to move in, she said, which can prompt to pneumonia that, thusly, prompts to sepsis, or all-inclusive inflammation. it appears differently in relation to the Zika infection, which causes gentle ailment in the mother yet can affect the creating embryo, the flu infections once in a while cross the placenta to contaminate the baby specifically, Theiler said.

In 2014, scientists at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia found, subsequent to controlling for different components, that getting this season’s cold virus vaccine amid pregnancy diminished the danger of preterm birth or bringing forth a low-birth-weight newborn child. The same New England Journal of Medicine study that found an expanded danger of fetal demise with influenza disease amid pregnancy additionally found that this season’s flu virus antibody was extremely powerful, diminishing the danger of influenza amid pregnancy by 70 percent.

Handwashing is the best cleanliness measure to keep influenza, Theiler said. Still, if a pregnant lady is in close contact with a contaminated individual — say, a more established youngster — she ought to summon her specialist right, instead of simply depending on handwashing, Theiler included. In the event that the regular influenza strain isn’t very much secured by that year’s immunization, numerous doctors may need to preemptively treat the lady with against viral medications to guarantee she doesn’t become ill, on the grounds that the results of contamination can be desperate, Theiler said.

Any pregnant lady who encounters influenza manifestations ought to summon her specialist right, Theiler said. “They shouldn’t endure it at home or extreme it out like they may do on the off chance that they weren’t pregnant,” Theiler said. Once more, against viral medications would be the treatment of decision.

If you are expecting baby you should know that taking care of your health will also affect the unborn child . there are a few things to avoid completely during the pregnancy phase in order not to harm the baby and make sure that it remains safe and healthy . read the article to know some of them .

1 – You must avoid consuming Prescription Drugs or Over the counter ones like Aspirin . you might think that some Drugs are safe enough , but they are not safe at all and might cause dangers to you and your baby if you are pregnant .even if you trying to conceive you need to ask your doctor what medications to take and what not .you should stop taking any drugs for 8 weeks before you get pregnant because this will affect the baby’s development especially the vital organs like the brain and lungs .

2 – Avoid Caffeine as much as you can or restrict the use by 200 mg per day . the high dosage of caffeine can cause the baby to suffer from diabetes after it is born

3 –don’t try massage as your abdomen should not be massaged during the first trimester .although some people agree that it is safe to have acupuncture you must consult your doctor about it as the consequences are not well known.

4 – Avoiding chemicals should be on top of your list ,some things to avoid are paint ,cleaning products and pesticides .The RCOG says “ pregnant women shouldn’t be exposed to products and foods that may contain chemicals which could harm your unborn baby.”

5 – don’t consume Sugar Substitutes in large quantities or even natural sugar as it may cause diabetes. limit your intake into maximum four servings a day s advised by Liz Applegate, Ph.D., director of sports nutrition at the University of California, Davis, Applegate says. “If you consume an excessive amount of certain compounds, it could damage the liver or cause birth defects.”

6 – avoid using Teeth Whitening Products “The chemicals created during the procedure can corrode tissue cells, and we don’t know what damage they may do to a developing baby if you swallow them accidentally,” explains Elisa Mello, D.D.S., a cosmetic and reconstructive dentist based in New York City. The fastest method to whiten teeth and get rid of stains is naturally by using baking soda added to tooth paste .

You are already at the last stage of your pregnancy, as you will certainly meet your baby within a few days. Waiting for this stage is an exhausting task, but you made it and your baby will be more clever than his schoolmates will when he grow up. Just visit your doctor or call him whenever you feel a lack of baby movement, water break, or frequent and strong contractions.

Your baby is ready for birth now, yet his digestive system, brain, and eyes will keep developing after a few weeks of his birth. The rest of his body including the liver, lungs, small organs, and tiny details are fully formed and developed by the 41st week. Actually, your baby is certainly at his way out to the external world.

The 41st week of your pregnancy should be the date of one of your labor’s stages including the early, active, and period of transition. The early stage includes frequent contractions that help your cervix be larger to open the way out for your baby. Beginning from this stage, your partner should give you regular healthy snacks and water to provide you power at the last stage.

The active labor may last three or four consecutive hours, as the cervix is dilating until the water break stage. Now, you should head directly to the hospital with your partner and relax as much as you can. When you reach the hospital, your baby should be at the second sub-stage of his transition period and you are required to push while the contractions are intensifying until your baby arrives to the external world.

By the end of the 41st week, your doctor will tend to induce your pregnancy using natural or medical methods such as cinnamon or oxytocin. Such methods have several risks on you and your baby whenever they are performed before the 39th week of pregnancy, but it is mostly safe at the 41st week. However, you can still let your baby choose his birthday and wait for the 42nd week to give birth in your due date if you still have a healthy pregnancy.

Keep eating healthy food, relaxing most of the day, and walking for 10 minutes every day to fight the exhausting pregnancy symptoms and strength your muscles for delivery day. All of your family friends should support you at this stage to avoid pregnancy depression and get a considerably easy delivery experience.

Don’t worry because you are still pregnant, as the full-term baby is always healthy and fully mature. It is normal to be pregnant up to 42 weeks, but let your doctor know if any change has happened. Here are a few reasons why you should stay pregnant to the 40th week in addition to serious information about this stage.

Even in the 40th week of your pregnancy, your baby’s folds of the brain need more time inside your womb to mature perfectly. Such folds will help your baby swallow and suck effectively after his birth. Such a brain is still developing the connections of social functioning, balance, learning, and coordination that may need double that time to develop outside your womb.

His liver, muscles, and lungs become fully mature by the end of the 40th week. If your baby is born at the 40th week, he will be mostly in a good body and mental health and will need a few medical interventions if his movements inside your womb are normal until the day of his birth.

Your body adapts itself to the position of birth naturally at the 40th week and the uterus begins to reduce its size to push your baby into the pelvis. This will certainly cause heaviness down your tummy and pressure your bladed causing a frequent urge to urinate. Whenever your baby reaches the due date, you will experience labor signs such as break of water, spotting, bleeding, or abdominal cramps. When you notice one or more of such symptoms, call your doctor and head directly with your partner, hospital bag, and birth plan to the hospital.

In a few cases, the doctor resort to induce labor using different methods such as ripening the cervix, rupturing the amniotic sac, or stripping the membranes with his own fingers. Instead, the doctor can inject you with oxytocin through an IV tube installed to your arm to increase the frequency and strength of the contractions.

Through the 40th week of your pregnancy, you should relax and sleep as much as you can and walk for about 10 or 20 minutes daily. You may need to write down your memories and experiences about this pregnancy, especially if this pregnancy comes after an effort, to remember them at your coming pregnancy or to find memories with your kids even before their birth.

Your delivery day is coming soon and you should be ready for such an event. Your baby’s length and weight should be suitable for birth by the 39th week, but he is waiting for your womb to open. This can happen after a few days, but keep counting his movements and relax until your due date.

Your baby is still forming a layer of fat under his skin to help him grow healthily and safely along the first few months after his birth and protect him from the cold whether at this stage. In addition to your baby’s color of eyes, the neutral network of his eyes will need about a month after delivery to mature perfectly.

The amniotic fluid surrounding your baby will decrease and tend to be milky by the 39th week of your pregnancy due to your baby shedding of the white substance and hair that covered his body along the previous weeks. When the fluid break, you will feel a small or big gush of water or a slow leak, and you should inform your doctor in such all cases.

Whenever you feel early labor signs such as mild contractions, you should count and time them, as the irregular contractions that don’t increase their strength are false signs. The true labor signs will have a regular frequency and increase their intensity or strength. For instance, if you feel contractions every five minutes and every one lasts for about a minute, you should head directly to the hospital.

For the safety of your baby, you should monitor his movements periodically at such late weeks of pregnancy and your doctor will monitor his heartbeats rate during delivery. Taking naps in different times of the day is important for your delivery minutes, but your doctor may ask you to exercise for 20 minutes daily to strength your muscles during delivery.

If you have a prenatal appointment with the doctor this week, he may do an abdominal examination to see if your cervix is opening, softening, or thinning out as a sign of a near delivery.

You should be fully ready for delivery at this point, as it will mostly happen this week or at the coming one. For example, your hospital bag with all of its contents including your and your baby’s clothes, a TENS machine, toiletries, and lip balm should be ready in addition to the nursery with its cradle and small closet and, of course, the name of your baby.

Are you a first-time mother who tends to call the doctor whenever you feel severe pain in your back or down your tummy? If so, the coming lines will let you know the difference between the false Braxton Hicks contractions and the true labor pains providing you an overview about your body and your baby at the 38th week of your pregnancy.

Do you notice that the baby’s hands remain closed like balls until about six months after his birth? The idea is that his grasp reflex becomes very strong by the 38th week and become flexible after a few months of his birth to help him grab things by his hands. Inside your womb, your baby’s iris gain a certain neutral color, but it need more pigments to gain its original color; so, the color of your baby’s eyes will be defined after about nine months of his birth.

Your tummy size will stop growing starting from the 38th week of your pregnancy, as your baby may gain just a few grams and the amniotic fluid around him is decreasing steadily, but the shape of such a tummy will change as your baby descends deep into your pelvis. It is normal to notice vaginal discharges mixed with blood at this week, but whenever you see spotting, bleeding, or unusual breaking of water, you should call your doctor immediately.

If you are a first-time mom, you should differentiate between the false Braxton Hicks contractions and the true labor pain, when you should head directly to the hospital. The Braxton Hicks contractions go away directly whenever you change your position or rest your back on a comforting bed, while the true labor pains are increasing their frequency and duration steadily without pause.

Such contractions may last for a month or a few weeks, but the true labor pains precede your delivery with just a few hours or even minutes.

During your prenatal visit, the doctor ma y preform a pelvic test to see if your uterus is open and your baby’s way out is suitable or not. This test will define the probable date and method of your delivery. Taking rest at the 38th week up to the end of your pregnancy is incredibly important, as the exhausted women may need an assisted vaginal delivery using a vacuum device or a forceps.

Do you feel heaviness at your pelvis and see thick discharges? These are not true labor symptoms, but you have certainly less than a month to deliver your lovely baby, just be ready all the time. For more information and risk signs in the 37th week of pregnancy, keep reading the coming lines.

Unless you have a medical reason to give birth, your midwife will urge you to wait for the 39th or even the 40th week. Your baby is about 2.9kg and 48.6 cm and he may be larger if he is a boy. His tiny muscles, brain, and digestive system need more time inside your womb to mature perfectly, yet the rest of his systems try their roles at the real world.

The surrounding amniotic fluid is decreasing due to the increasing size of your baby, but whenever you feel severe pain or shortage of movement, you should inform your midwife simultaneously.

Along the coming couple of weeks, your baby’s movement pattern will be the same due to his large size and upside-down position. He will spend such days practicing and moving his external organs from right to left and vice versa. His head becomes at the same circumference with his chest to prepare for the coming delivery day. When your baby is born, the color and thickness of his hair may surprise you, but remember that the real hair will replace them within a few months.

The Braxton Hicks contractions will increase their frequency and period as a sign of the near delivery day. It is normal to feel lightening as your baby descends deeply in your pelvis and to pass your mucus plug if it blocks your cervical canal. If your delivery day is near enough, the water break can be a regular symptom at the 37th week of your pregnancy. Whenever you feel such contractions every a few minutes accompanied with vaginal discharges and bleeding or heavy spotting, call your doctor directly.

Sleeping at the last weeks of your pregnancy is not an easy activity, but you should find a suitable position and time during the day or night to sleep well and gain extra energy for the delivery date. If you have intense dreams because of your regular thinking about labor, try to relax and find cheerful activities during night and to stop such gloomy thoughts.

Are you ready for delivery? Actually, your baby is ready, but his way through your pelvis down to the vagina needs to open and you have to gain energy for these crucial minutes. Here are a few information and tips to help you prepare your body for the delivery.

By the end of the 36th week of your pregnancy, your baby is ready to get out to the world and live as a normal person, as his weight is about 2.6kg and his tall reaches 47cm. Your baby gets rid of the protective substance and downy hair covering his skin, but he may swallow them with the surrounding fluid. In this case, your baby will dismiss such hair and skin substances out of his body throughout his first black and thick poo.

You should visit the midwife weekly starting from the 36th week of your pregnancy to define if your baby’s head reaches your pelvis or it is still in a cephalic position. As your baby is moving down, your midwife will expect the date of your delivery.

Most of your baby’s systems including the immune system, blood circulation, and the respiratory apparatus are ready to function perfectly by the end of the 36th week of your pregnancy, but the digestive system will need several months after his birth to deal with the solids. His bones are already hardened except for the top of the skull to protect his brain during his birth.

Your baby’s movements now are down your tummy; so, you can breathe and eat freely, but if you notice a real problem with his movements, contact directly with your doctor or midwife.

Waiting a long time for your baby’s arrival may let you nervous and anxious most of the time; so, you need to energize yourself at the morning and relax at the afternoon or evening. If you need to revive your energy before birth, you can try the water therapy placing your feet in warm water for about a minute and turn it suddenly to the cold water directly.

Instead, you can choose a suitable body brush and rub your body from the feet up to your heart to boost your blood circulation. Along with such gentle exercises, you should you need to see the sunrays for about 30 minutes daily to support your immune system and activate vitamin D under your skin.

The delivery day can be anytime starting from the 35th week of your pregnancy, especially if your baby’s weight is suitable and his way out is open. This may be considered a moderate premature, but most of the babies at this point don’t need neonatal nurseries. When you reach the 35th week of your pregnancy, the rest of your pregnancy journey is shorter and easier.

Your baby’s weight at this point reaches 2.4kg and his tall is about 46.2cm. He is still moving toward the end of your pelvis, but he needs a few weeks to gain weight and the fat should form 30% of his body before going out. Along with your baby’s visible movements, you may feel irregular aches and twitches, but their rhythm will accelerate shortly before and at your delivery.

To give birth in a certain hospital, you should do a hospital test run, calculate the way at rush hours, and define the parking space and drink machine even if you attend your antenatal appointments there along the previous weeks. Your birth plan should be flexible to contain the sudden choices, and any change in the plan should be permitted as per the circumstances.

As for your home, it should be clean and tidy with super-organized kits, as you will need to relax several days or even weeks after delivery. You can even purchase a baby monitor, new night lights, and a baby care kit at the 35th week, install them, and try them before your baby’s arrival.

If you prefer to spend your labor at home, you should prepare a labor kit including a TENS machine, some paracetamol, and bath oil in addition to your favorite pain relief methods, a birth ball, and a birth pool at the 35th week of your pregnancy. Your partner in addition to the midwife should attend all the stages of your labor to support and encourage you as needed.

Your partner massages your body gently and encourages you to eat useful snacks and drinks at the early stages of labor can provide your body a constant energy. To help your baby move flexibly in the right birth canal, you should stay upright and mobile like the position of hugging or slow dance with your partner, but if you need to lie down and relax, try to rest on the lift side.

From now on, you can expect regular Braxton Hicks and your baby takes his way down to prepare your body for delivery. You need just to relax and prepare your “I’m aware” birth plan and to communicate with your baby using your sound and delicate touches on your tummy. For more information about the 34th week, keep reading the following lines.

Your baby is ready for delivery by the end of the 34th week, but his nervous system and lungs may need one or two more weeks to mature perfectly. A few babies need to spend several hours or even days in a neonatal nursery until their lungs are fully mature. As your baby has less space to move inside your womb, his movement pattern will differ accordingly. Your baby boy’s testicles will descend to the scrotum and his fingernails and toenails will exceed the tips of his fingers at the end of the 34th week.

You may suffer from premature labor at the 34 week, but rest assure because your baby’s survival without problems reaches 99%. You may suffer from numbness in your pelvic region or tingling sensation, but this indicates that you will deliver your baby soon. If your eyes are dry, you should ask your doctor about a suitable eye drops and sunglasses and avoid the direct sun at the peak times. You may need antidepressants to get rid of the pregnancy depression, even at its early stages.

Apart from the painful symptoms of your pregnancy, you should talk to your baby as much as you can, as he will hear your voice and know your smell directly after his birth. If you have an appointment with your doctor this week, you should let him evaluate your birth plan and show you the best pain relief ways for your delivery period.

You should let your doctor know if you have swelling hands or ankles, blurred vision, or headache, as they may be a sign of having pre-eclampsia. According to your doctor’s notes, you should check your hospital bag and nursery.

The 34th week can be a suitable time to purchase and install the car seat for your baby, as most of the hospitals stipulate this car to carry your baby to home. The birth ball is another important item for your labor, as it will encourage you to take the right position during the actual delivery.

Do you believe that you can take care of your baby inside your womb than in the external world? When he comes, you can sleep a couple of hours every night and spend most of the time trying to avoid his cry. If this is the case, you will certainly ignore the harmful symptoms of pregnancy and relax most of the day practicing gentile walking or swimming excesses to keep your body fitting.

Mostly, your baby’s head is down your womb now and ready to move further with his legs folded up toward his chest until the delivery day. By the end of the 33rd week, your baby will create pressure on your cervix, especially if this is your first pregnancy experience. Along the remaining period, your baby’s size will increase as it is about 2kg, his immune system will gain antibodies from you, and his bones, except for the skull, will harden.

By the end of the 33rd week of your pregnancy, your baby looks like a normal, but smaller, baby who can differentiate between day and light and create his own life system inside your womb.

At this point, you will forget most of the regular pregnancy symptoms, as you may notice edema, swollen ankles and feet, and dry face skin, but drinking too much water can solve such problems. If you are exhausted most of the time and your pregnancy weight hurt your back, you should find special time for relaxation and swimming, as the water would help you feel weightless and relaxed.

If you have weird or terrifying dreams with the labor pain or fear of not being a good mother, try to change your sleeping position, place, or time and avoid stressing yourself to sleep. The regular urge to urinate, hormonal changes, heartburn, varicose veins, and leg cramps may affect you at this period, but the warm bath and a simple daily massage will ease such painful symptoms.

You may need to visit your doctor rapidly, as he will monitor the amniotic fluid surrounding your baby in addition to his growth along the remaining weeks. When you introduce fish oils and wild salmon to your weekly diet, most of the scientists expect that you will have a genius baby. You may need to attend a breastfeeding class or even read instructions to feed your baby directly after birth and to read about your hospital’s policy.

Your baby is coming soon and needs special preparations for his delivery day.

If you are still at the 32nd week of your pregnancy, this article will be extremely helpful.

If your baby is a boy, his testicles will probably descend to the scrotum by the end of this week, but if some of them fail to descend, they will do shortly after his birth or at most by his first birthday.

Looking inside your womb, you will notice your baby’s growing fingernails and soft and smooth skin and will detect his activities including breathing, kicking, swallowing, and sucking. The accumulating fat under your baby’s skin dismiss the idea of transparent skin and help protecting your baby after his birth.

Your baby’s head is going down by the end of the 32th week and his movements will be less than usual, as he prepares himself for delivery. If this is not your case, your baby still has a chance to take the head-down position until the last week of your pregnancy.

As your tummy is growing, your belly button can pop and your stomach can be smaller due to your womb’s pressure. The irregular practice contractions will highlight their strength and frequency from now on and reach their peak at the real labor minutes. You can let your doctor print 3D or 4D photos for your expected baby once or twice throughout your pregnancy to strengthen your relationship and understand his world perfectly.

If you expect that your husband may stuck somewhere during your delivery, you may need to provide one of your family members a copy of your birth plan to take you to the hospital as fast as he\she can. The remaining time is a suitable period to relax before your baby comes and spoil your night sleep doing gentle exercises to help you on and after the delivery day.

The last stage of your pregnancy is full of contrasts due to your baby’s large size inside your womb and your personal need for rest. The 30th week in particular can be boring but the idea of hugging and touching your baby soon should let you excited. This article will help you combat such confusing elements and keep your pregnancy safe and healthy.

Your baby’ development in function and long will slow down, but he will double his weight rapidly during the coming few weeks. He weights now about 1.3kg and can open and close his eyes freely and see what is going on around him. However, your baby will see just 20 or 30cm distance after his birth. In most cases, your baby’s digestive tract and lung become fully developed at the end of the 30th week and his bone marrow can produce the red blood cells to prove that your baby can depend on himself after birth.

The amount of amniotic fluid surrounding your lovely baby seems to decrease at this point, but your uterus is growing rapidly to consume your growing baby and the needed amount of the fluid to protect him. Such a growing uterus may press a part of your lungs and stomach to make it hard to breath and eat starting from this point. You may still experience a few early pregnancy symptoms starting from the 30th week including the tender breasts, heartburn, regular fatigue, and rapid need to pee.

At the 30th week of pregnancy, you will have contrasting feelings and emotions, as you will feel hungry but can’t eat too much, feel fatigue but can’t sleep, and feel thirsty and need the bathroom regularly. Your extra weight in addition to the nightmares concerning birth can spoil your sleep, but you should change your sleeping position regularly and search about positive delivery experiences around you to enhance your idea about the delivery day.

If you will prepare your bag now, you will need clothes for you and your baby along your stay in the hospital and the items and belongings you will need during and after delivery- including an oversized t-shirt, suitable sized toiletries for you and the baby, TENS machine, and lip balm. Along with such preparations, you may need to go to the pedicure or the coiffure to keep your hairstyle and maintain your body before your baby’s arrival.

Congratulations, you are a few steps away from having your baby in your hand and playing with him, just be patient and forget his heavy weight and noticeable kicks every night. Let’s exchange our experiences about this part of your pregnancy in this article.

The lovely soft hair is growing rapidly on your baby’s head and his brain is still developing, but he can react to the light and sound s by this week. The skeleton is hardening starting from this point, as the brain’s development will be in function apart from its size. Your baby’s muscles and lung need much time to develop and mature and his eyes can focus on a definite target by this time.

Inside your womb, the Vernix Caseosa and the lanugo begin to disappear because your baby doesn’t need such a protection any more. Instead, your baby’s buds of the first and permanent teeth are forming by the 29th week, but they will need several months after his birth to appear out of his gums.

You may notice that you are hungry all the time because your baby is having all of his nutrition needs directly from your food. For this, you should choose food rich with folic acid, iron, calcium, and vitamin c and keep hydrate most of the time. In other times, you will notice your baby’s wriggles and kicks, especially if his sleeping time is not yours. Such kicks can tell you indirectly that your baby is fine, but when you feel that he is not moving for a long period, just drink an icy glass of water or eat a spicy food to help him move or consult your doctor.

Starting from the 29th week of pregnancy, you should avoid the premature labor reasons including smoking, over exertion, and overweight, as your baby may have serious problems if his lung is not fully mature. In all cases, try to consult your doctor whenever you feel any premature labor signs including severe pain down your tummy, unusual vaginal discharges, or vaginal bleeding.

At this point, you should choose your birth partner, the way of your delivery, and your birth plan, as they will be your own choice. If your husband can’t provide you practical and moral support during your delivery, you can choose one of your close relatives or friends, but make sure they have a copy of your birth plan.

The third and last trimester of your pregnancy begins with mild symptoms and encouraging emotions, but you may find contrast symptoms along the coming weeks. When you are board of the heavy days and weeks, just think about your coming baby and what you should do with and for him before and after his birth. This article will provide you an idea about the 28th week of your pregnancy and what should you do in such a critical stage.

Your perfectly formed baby comes to the serious stage inside your womb, as he\she is going to come to the world within a few weeks. His\her heartbeats are still strong to help your doctor detect them by the Doppler or your husband hears them by his ears. Similarly, your baby can produce tears and smell your food, but his\her bones are still soft and the brain will increase about 500 percent of its weight along the coming few weeks.

The layer of fat that will protect and feed your baby at the early stage of his\her birth is forming from the 28th week until your baby’s birth.

At this exciting point, your baby weights about 1kg and measures about 38cm and takes the position of birth, as his\her head is facing your body’s exit. Your baby’s activities within this week include blinking, hiccupping, breathing, and sucking to prepare his\her vital body systems for the external world. Your baby’s eyes are already forming and functioning, but their sight need to develop to help your baby see your face during breast-feeding.

As for you, your increasing weight may keep you uncomfortable and your cramped legs may hurt you, but you should just avoid the hot weather and low blood sugar in addition to standing or sitting for a long period to reduce such hurting symptoms.

Throughout the third trimester, you need just a daily half-hour of exercises in addition to healthy food to keep your and your baby’s health. The 28th week is a suitable time to choose your baby’s name and put a plan for your life after delivery. You will certainly change your daily schedule after your baby’s birth, as he\she will change your life.

Your friends and even midwife can provide you precious options and advices that will help you during and after your baby’s birth; so, try to ask them about the hospital facilities and what you need to purchase before and after delivery.

Your growing belly is a clear sign that you are about to terminate the second trimester of your pregnancy and begin the last and most tiring stage. Inside such a belly, your baby is opening and closing his\her eyes reacting to the surrounding light. The following lines will help you feel what is going on with your baby and body in the 27th week of your pregnancy.

Do you enjoy your sweet dreams and don’t need to wake up? Your baby at the 27th week of your pregnancy has similar sweet dreams, as his\her brain can create cheerful photos to help him\her laugh accordingly. Your baby’s movements at this point can range from regular kicking to rhythmic movements due to hiccups attacks. He\she can differentiate between the day and night and can be affected by light, especially when he\she open his\her eyes.

All of your baby’s organs, including the brain and taste buds, can function properly in the real world by the 27th week, but the lung will need a few time or medical assistance to function.

Your uterus is almost to reach your rib cage and reaches the size of a basketball; so, you may feel a short of breath and your normal clothes will be certainly tight. The normal pregnancy symptoms of the second trimester including hemorrhoids, leg cramps, mild swelling, itchy belly, enlarged feet, and varicose veins may extend with you throughout the rest of your pregnancy time.

The increasing size of your hands and legs is a normal pregnancy symptom, but if you feel that they are growing rapidly, you should consult your doctor to avoid the preeclampsia. As your body needs extra energy during this stage, try to make use of your increasing appetite to eat healthy food keeping your exercise routine and fixed relaxing times. During this stage, try to reduce your consumption of spicy food, as your baby’s taste buds will make him\her hiccup and move severely for a short period.

You may need to take a test for antibodies in the 27th week, especially if you have Rh D negative and your baby is Rh D positive. In all cases, chatting your friends about their pregnancy experiences and their babies will enhance your understanding to your pregnancy and help you deal with your baby perfectly. Your belly button will look wider and looser than the previous weeks, but it will take its original shape after delivery.

The irregular menstrual cycle is a complicated issue that many women experience at any time. A normal menstrual cycle lasts 28 days, plus or minus seven days. If the menstrual bleeding occurs more frequently than every 21 days or lasts longer than 8 days, this is considered an irregular menstrual cycle. Also, missed, early, or late periods are considered signs of an irregular cycle. The most common reasons for irregular periods are:

1. Stress: Stress is the most common cause of irregular period. When you are under high-stress levels, your body can start to conserve energy by preventing ovulation. Experiencing a traumatic event suddenly causes the adrenals to work overtime, which can disrupt the production of estrogen and progesterone, two sex hormones. When you don’t have much estrogen, you are unable to properly build up the uterine lining, thus you don’t get your period.

2. Diet: The types of food you eat can cause irregular periods. If you are eating a diet that is rich in unhealthy carbs or if you have gained weight, your body will produce varying levels of certain hormones, shifting when you ovulate. Also, a low-calorie diet can also result in nutrient deficiencies and lowered body fat percentages that may contribute to irregular periods.

3. Thyroid Disorder: Thyroid disorders may be one of the leading causes of missed periods. The thyroid gland, often called a “master gland” and considered a crucial controller of the endocrine system, produces hormones that maintain the body’s metabolism and impacts many sex hormones. Thyroid disorders, including hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, can cause widespread symptoms like changes in estrogen and cortisol hormones and missed periods.

4. The Birth Control Pill: Some women experience missed or irregular periods for a long time when they stop using birth control pill. This happens because a woman’s natural menstrual cycle is composed of rising and falling levels of estrogen and progesterone, but taking birth control pills keep estrogen at sufficiently high levels, which fools the body into thinking it’s pregnant and results in irregular periods. The body may take many months or even years to correct this and return to homeostasis.

5. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): It occurs when very small cysts develop in the ovaries. The common symptoms of PCOS are irregular or light periods or not periods at all. This happens because, in women with PCOS, ovulation may not take place as often as normal. The production of hormones may also be unbalanced, and you could have higher levels of testosterone than normal.

Pregnancy is a vital period in women’s life. Being pregnant means that you are responsible for your growing baby’s health which requires you to be careful about your lifestyle as this will have a direct effect on your baby’s health. Eating a healthy diet is very important for you and your baby’s health. Also, there are some foods to avoid or take care with when you are pregnant. Below is a list of foods that you have to avoid or minimize during pregnancy.

High-Mercury Fish:
Seafood is a great source of protein and many fish contains omega-3 fatty acids which can promote your baby’s brain and eye development. But there are some fish and shellfish that contain potentially levels of mercury.

Mercury is a highly toxic element which is commonly found in polluted water. If it is consumed in high amounts when you are pregnant, this could affect your baby’s developing the nervous system. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) encourage pregnant women to avoid Swordfish Shark, King mackerel, and Tilefish.

Raw, Undercooked, And Processed Meat: The pregnant woman should not eat undercooked or raw meat because of the potential risk of infection from several bacteria or parasites. These include Toxoplasma, E. Coli, Listeria, and Salmonella. Bacteria may threaten the health of the unborn baby, possibly leading to stillbirth or severe neurological illnesses, including mental retardation and epilepsy. All the meat and poultry should be cooked thoroughly until steaming hot, especially with poultry, pork, sausages, burgers, and deli meat. Such meats may become infected with different bacteria during processing or storage.

Raw Eggs: Raw eggs can be contaminated with Salmonella. The symptoms of salmonella that the mother may experience include fever, nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, and diarrhea. However, in rare cases, the infection may cause cramps in the uterus, leading to premature birth or stillbirth.

So, pregnant women should cook eggs until the egg yolks and white are firm. Also, avoid foods made with raw or partially cooked eggs, such as eggnog, raw batter, homemade ice cream, cake icings and salad dressings.

Unpasteurized Foods: Raw milk and unpasteurized cheese can contain many harmful bacteria, including Listeria, Salmonella, E. Coli and Campylobacter. Also, unpasteurized juices should be avoided because they are also prone to bacterial infections. These infections can all have life-threatening consequences for an unborn baby. Avoid soft cheeses, such as Brie, feta, and blue cheese, unless they are clearly labeled as being pasteurized or made with pasteurized milk.
