Unapproved sleeping position

Sleeping on one side with your knees bent is likely to be the most comfortable position. You can use pillows under your belly, between your legs, and behind your back, if you like.

As your pregnancy progresses, you'll need to avoid lying flat on your back.

Unhealthy diet

Eating a balanced diet during pregnancy doesn't necessarily mean eating for two. Most pregnant women say finding the right type of food to eat can be nerve-wracking.

To ensure you and your baby grow healthy you can add these; eggs, salmon, beans, whole grains, sweet potato, leafy vegetables and lean meat.

Improper dressing

Pregnancy can cause a woman’s body to change shape and size several times before the baby arrives. Being pregnant does not mean you should lock away your fashion sense and give up your personal style. There are so many trendy styles that can suit your body size.

However, wearing tight clothes during pregnancy is not safe.

Tight clothing will not harm your baby but it will be uncomfortable for you. Wearing clothes that don’t fit can cause pain around the abdomen, across your chest and even your back.

Unhealthy habits

A couple who are trying to conceive are always advised to avoid unhealthy lifestyles such as smoking, alcohol, and drugs, eating junk food and lack of sleep.

Now that you are pregnant, your baby’s health is under your care. Many of your bad habits may harm your baby resulting in disease, growth issues, and brain damage.
