I believe pregnancy is a big step towards building a happy family. I hope you can’t wait to see
your baby finally on the 40th week. These final weeks represent the overall 1000 days of your
maternity. You might be wondering what the 1000 days are? They are days of birth of your baby
until two years. At this stage, your baby has to get any necessary nutrients to build both his
mental and physical ability. The balanced diet is very vital for your baby’s health, and it helps
him to grow and lead a happy and healthy life in the future.
Try to take vitamin D (5 μg) or vitamin D rich diet for yourself daily. Fish/sardine and dairy
products are rich in vitamin D. For the first 12 pregnancy weeks, and you should take folic acid
(400 μg) on a daily basis.
Taking dairy products three times a day will help you achieve good health throughout your
pregnancy period. Calcium also helps your baby grow a healthy heart, nerves, and muscles as
well as develop a normal heart rhythm and blood-clotting abilities. If you don't get enough
calcium in your diet when you're pregnant, your baby will draw it from your bones, which may
impair your health later on.
Chicken, red meat, egg, bines and other vegetables are rich with iron. Your body uses an iron to
make extra blood (haemoglobin) for you and your baby during pregnancy. Iron also helps move
oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body and your baby's.
Limiting your sweet consumption is right for your health and your baby. You can take sweets
occasionally for example, once or twice a week.
