What You Can and Can Not Do When Pregnant
When you get pregnant you can no longer do everything you did before. Suddenly you have a list of things that you can’t do. That being said, you can do more than you might think. The following is a list of pregnancy dos and don’ts.
You might think you have to leave the shoveling to someone else, but that depends on how far along you are. In the first three months it is safe to shovel snow. When you get further along you will have to nix this activity!
If you use an activity tracker to track your steps you can still use it when you are pregnant. The mechanical accelerometers are perfectly safe. The wireless monitors should be used with caution, don’t clip it to your pants near your bump, opt for one you wear on your wrist instead.
Eat Canned Tuna
Tuna does contain mercury, but that doesn’t mean that you have to avoid it altogether. You can eat one six ounce serving up to six times per month. Fish is actually a good element to add to your pregnancy diet because it contain omega-3 fatty acids.
Even though you want to have pearly whites all the time, it is best to hold off on using bleaching treatments during pregnancy. Instead, try to remove stains with a mixture of equal part strawberries and baking soda. Mix the two ingredients together in a blender and dab on your teeth with a q-tip or cloth.
Not sure if you should give away the tickets you bought to see your favorite artist? Hold on to your tickets because it is perfectly safe for you to go and get your groove on. Your baby has a sound buffer that reduces the sound making it perfectly safe.
