1

Take supplements to reduce discomfort in your aching legs. Leg cramps can be due to low calcium and magnesium levels during pregnancy.

2

Do not diet while pregnant. Weight gain during pregnancy is expected, so you are doing yourself and your baby a favour.

3

Wear sunscreen. Being pregnant makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight, so you're more prone to sunburn and chloasma.

4

Do not take any sleeping pills while pregnant, unless prescribed and approved by your doctor.

5

Savor intimacy with your partner during pregnancy. You may sexually slow down when the baby comes, so have fun.

6

Ensure that your vaccinations are current, including those for chickenpox, rubella, measles and even the flu.

7

For back pain during pregnancy, sit in chairs that have back support. The more posture you have the better your back will feel.

8

Focus on the positive. You may hear negative things from friends or family members, such as scary birth stories. Ignore them.

9

Do kegel exercises. Frequent urination is normal during pregnancy, but doing these preventative exercises can help avoid incontinence post baby.

10

Talk with your doctor about any unusual discharge.
