To Do List: Pregnancy Do's

Don’t eat this. Don’t do that. Pregnant women are confronted with a lot of “don’ts.” Happily, there are a lot of “do’s” that are important to your health and your baby’s health, as well:

DO see your doctor regularly. Prenatal care can help keep you and your baby healthy and can help spot problems if they occur.

DO continue taking folic acid throughout your pregnancy. All women capable of pregnancy should get 400 to 800 micrograms (400 to 800 mcg or 0.4 to 0.8 mg) of folic acid every day. Getting enough folic acid lowers the risk of some birth defects. Taking a vitamin with folic acid will help you to be sure you are getting enough. See our "Vitamins" section for folic acid supplements as well as prenatal vitamins.

DO eat a variety of healthy foods. Include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, calcium- rich foods and lean sources of protein. DO get moving. Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, physical activity is good for you and your baby.
