Take care of your mood in pregnancy

Pregnancy means a woman’s body goes through a lot of changes. These changes are not only physical but mental as well. There are releases of certain hormones that can lead to some mental unrest and mood changes during and post pregnancy.

To some, it can be a minor change which can be rectified easily, but to others it can be a major change which can create certain problems. Depression is a common phenomenon during pregnancy and a woman might feel certain uneasiness due to this. But this can be cured easily with light medications from experienced doctors. There can also be some neurological disorders after pregnancy or during pregnancy as well. If that happens, one immediately needs to see a proper doctor.

If one is having problems or suffering from dilemma then you can very well take help from a psychologist on how you can approach in seeing pregnancy on a positive note. Not only this, one you get pregnant, you can always take help from others. These nine months of tenure can see a lot of ups and downs in human moods and this is pretty normal. According to many psychologists, during this time, women go through a lot of physical as well as mental changes as they keep on trying to cope up with their role of being a new mother.

Apart from that, when it comes to pregnancy one should not have any medicine without proper prescription. A bit of carelessness can lead to miscarriage or deformity in the growing baby inside the womb.

The body weight should increase normally. A pregnant woman will gain at least 13 to 15 kilos during this tenure. Gaining more weight than this can be a bit problematic for both the mother and the child. So checking body weight is also very important. Also the growth of the belly is checked by the doctor. Only they can find whether it is growing right or not. now, the weight gain of the pregnant mother is also directly related to the diet that they follow during and post pregnancy.

The food is a very crucial part in this tenure. Remember, what you eat has a direct effect on your child. Eggs are not a very good thing in pregnancy. Raw eggs are mostly coated with bacteria and salmonella which can cause vomiting, diarrhoea and fever. Do not go for soft egg scrambles and some sunny side up but you can go for fully cooked eggs once in a while. Fish is very important when pregnancy diet is concerned. However, there are some varieties which should be avoided when one is pregnant. Fish which has high omega three fatty acid contents are very good as it helps in baby’s brain development.

When one is pregnant with a baby, they need proper rest. This does not mean that they will have to laze around for the entire day. But a sound sleep of 8 to 10 hours per day is very much needed. Also post pregnancy sound sleep is needed so that one can recover well.
