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

2

Count the kicks. You should feel the baby kick at least 10 times a day. Monitor these movements, as a lack of kicking could indicate a problem.

3

Cut back on caffeine. A study showed that women who consumed more than 200mg caffeine doubled their risk of miscarriage.

4

Keep a diary or blog of your pregnancy; reflect on your thoughts and feelings. It makes the period easier.

5

Indulge yourself. Once the baby comes you will have even fewer moments to yourself. Treat yourself to a lunchtime manicure, spoil yourself.

6

Avoid eating raw or undercooked meat. Certain food borne illnesses, are often present in undercooked and raw meat.

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

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

Know who and when to tell. The first three months are the most common time for miscarriage; so give the baby time to get settled before you announce.
