What Is the Right Way to Track My Pregnancy?
Most times, pregnancies are calculated by trimesters. Your first trimester will be between gestational weeks 1 through 12.
Your second trimester is next in line and will last between gestational weeks 13 through 28. Your third trimester will be between gestational weeks 29 through 40.
It’s important to remember that not all women experience pregnancy the same way, so do your best to enjoy the journey and stay healthy!
Foods, Drinks, and Substances to Avoid
There are certain things that you should avoid having for the safety of you and your child. These include alcohol, recreational drugs, tobacco/vaping, unpasteurized dairy products, raw fish, and meat. You should also be sure to wash all fruits and vegetables thoroughly before eating.
What Vitamins or Supplements Should I Take?
As an expecting mother, you should take a prenatal vitamin every day. You may meet one of our doctors for a prescription or purchase one at your local drug store.
