Do you have any tips on being as healthy as possible during pregnancy?

I am the type of person that really wants to have all her bases covered.  Are there any diet or excercise tips that you used and can recommend to me.  Whether it was a ritual or something that you ate that made the whole thing easier and make you feel better.  Thanks in advance. FR.heart

I would say that when you are working out that you should do it in a swimming pool.  It is much better on your joints and they say that it is the healthiest way to stay healthy.  And I ate a lot of pickles too, but I am not sure if that is too healthy.  HAHA.

I think above all the food, vitamins and rest, lower your stress levels.  I fought hard to keep myself calm and at peace during my 2nd and 3rd trimesters.  It was difficult at times but I let all the negativity roll off me.  It helped A LOT.  I gained a normal amount of weight, kept my blood pressure in check and had a very uneventful and enjoyable pregnancy.  Our son was born prematurely but he is now a healthy, hearty, laid back little man.  The best of luck to you and I hope you enjoy your pregnancy!

Step one for me was getting rid of the cookie dough.  This is my guilty pleasure and I know that I shouldnt but I have to.  During pregnancy though, I cut the dough out.

Hippiemom mentioned cutting out the cookie dough and I agree, it is very important that you talk to your doctor and try to follow a healthy diet.  It is so important to eat healthy not only during pregnancy but always.
