I am excited about my prenatal health and I want to share the tools that I use and how I help my clients through their pregnancy.
I feel like I should be giving you a health information tip, but I’m not. I just want to tell you that you can take care of yourself while you’re pregnant! I have three clients who are currently pregnant, and they were all very healthy while they were pregnant. This is true for women of all ages.
In the U.S. about 20% of pregnant women have some form of gestational diabetes. This is because a fetus is more sensitive to insulin after the first trimester, and as a result, it’s at higher risk of developing gestational diabetes. This is a common problem for women of all ages, but it’s especially common for women over 35.
Pregnancy is usually a time of extreme stress right? It’s one thing to be pregnant for a couple of weeks, but you can’t just be pregnant for a couple of weeks and expect to be healthy. A healthy pregnancy lasts about nine months. So if you’re pregnant while you’re on your period, you’re not really in a good situation.
The fact is that a lot of women do have gestational diabetes, they just don’t know it. It’s like a mystery disease for women who are over 35. It’s a risk that affects about 1.9% of all pregnancies. The good news is that you’re at a much higher risk for gestational diabetes if you’re overweight or if you have high blood pressure.
I had a friend who wanted to become pregnant during the summer. She had a miscarriage and had to go on medication for about a year. She got an app that sent her prenatal vitamins. She was very happy with the vitamins. She decided to go on her pregnancy. The problem was she wasn’t getting enough prenatal vitamins. She was taking the supplements but she wasn’t getting enough vitamins. She looked at her blood pressure and saw that it was high.
The good news is that she got some prenatal vitamins and got a good prenatal checkup. The bad news is that she didnt get any prenatal vitamins. She probably didnt get the vitamins at all. She had been taking her prenatal vitamins but not for this pregnancy. A good prenatal checkup will tell you if you have any deficiency in vitamins.
If you don’t have any deficiency in prenatal vitamins, then you don’t need any.
But the good news is that she got plenty of vitamins in her pregnancy. The bad news is that she didnt get any prenatal vitamins. She probably didnt get the vitamins at all. She had been taking her prenatal vitamins but not for this pregnancy. A good prenatal checkup will tell you if you have any deficiency in vitamins.
Some vitamins are essential, many are not. As a general rule, the more prenatal vitamins you take, the more likely you are to develop deficiency. The reason for this is that the more you take prenatal vitamins, the more you will absorb them. In other words, the more you take prenatal vitamins, the more you will get used to them. This is exactly the opposite of what happens when you don’t get enough vitamins.
