Each future mother sees her interesting position differently. For example, one of my friends was guided by the principle of pregnancy – this is not a disease. She practiced yoga and did waxing for herself (for me this is a feat, I will not make up my mind to her in the usual state). Another friend of mine, as soon as she saw 2 strips on a test, decided to completely change her lifestyle and refused to even go to the movies.
I tend to stick to the golden mean. I don’t believe in signs (for example, that you shouldn’t cut your hair or knit), but I consider some actions really unsafe for the health of the future mother and her baby. I will give a list of prohibitions that I guided during pregnancy.
1. Get out with risk to life.
When I heard about the interesting situation, I stopped washing the windows. We live on the fifth floor, and I fear the heights. It would be better to live with dirty windows than I would pretend to be an actress under a circus dome.
The husband somehow spread the dirt on the glass and on this my darling calmed down. I also stopped jumping to the edge of the bath to get something from the shelf in the bathroom, here, as they say, without comment.
2. Alcohol and nicotine.
Our bodies are very clever – in the first months of pregnancy, I was turned over by only one type of cigarettes and alcohol. The husband was expelled to the balcony, and I had no irresistible desire to drink a glass or two of beer or wine.
Although one colleague told me that she had been drinking vodka in recent months, because she had no strength to oppose this. But I think it is better to postpone this.
I’m not talking about special physical education for pregnant women or physical activity. But I think that it is better to exclude some sports. For example, running, cycling, badminton, skates. I periodically get sick with all this, but during pregnancy I told them decidedly not.
I am a coffee lover, what else to look for, but with an invigorating drink during pregnancy, she started. It was a real feat for me, because sometimes, without coffee, my head just breaks in pain. But for the sake of children’s health, I am ready for much.
I must say that we had planned for a long time for pregnancy, and therefore I was always waiting for this moment to come. At work, we had a clinical examination with a mandatory fluorography, which I, blushing, refused. After all, it is known that X-rays can be dangerous for the nervous system of the unborn child. I had to explain to a strict woman in a white coat that I might be a little bit pregnant.
This list can be supplemented with other items. I think that each mommy had her own limitations, which she adhered to.
And what do you think should not be done during pregnancy?
