- Watch your sleeping positions-
Do you sleep on stomach? If yes, then stop sleeping on stomach. You need to be alert while in sleep to avoid laying on stomach. As this is your first trimester, you can sleep on back or on either side, preferably on left side. From third trimester, you may not be able to sleep on back for long time due to baby’s weight.
- Stay Hydrated-
Drink plenty of water every day. In first trimester, there is possibility of indigestion, headache. This can be due to less intake of water or fluids. Drink Soup, Butter Milk, Daal, and Kadhi in your meals. Fluids and water help in creating new tissues, producing extra blood, throwing out toxins and wastes.
