However, this is also the time to think about your lifestyle habits and most of all, your diet. Every woman faces the same dilemma: what to eat and how much? Naturally, pregnancy comes with some major hormonal changes that affect your usual eating routine and creates different food cravings that might lead to weight gain and the lack of important nutrients for you and your baby.Some studies show that pregnant women need more protein, calcium, iron, and folic acid. These nutrients should come from a healthy and well-balanced diet. Your proteins should come from healthy sources like lean meat, fish, poultry, eggs, legumes, and nuts. You have to keep in mind that proteins are ‘’builder nutrients’’ and are crucial for organ development, especially the brain and heart.Increased intake of calcium is extremely important to build a baby’s bones and teeth. The lack of calcium can create some serious problems.Iron is another important nutrient you have to keep in mind when planning your healthy pregnancy diet. This mineral is needed to create enough oxygen for the baby. Lack of iron can lead to anemia and fatigue, as well as the increased risk of infection.Folic acid, also known as folate, is found in foods in the form of vitamin B. This important nutrient helps prevent different birth defects. However, it can be difficult to get the recommended amounts of folic acid through food alone. For this reason, you will be advised by your doctor to take some dietary supplements before and during pregnancy.The bottom line is that pregnancy is a beautiful and delicate period in a woman’s life.
