Pregnancy can be a very stressful time in a woman's life. Every expectant mother wants to have a healthy pregnancy and ensure that their child is born without any problems or complications. In order to have a healthy pregnancy, it is important to educate yourself, so that you know you are doing everything you can for your baby. This article contains a number of great pregnancy tips.

Make sure to schedule some last minute pampering before the baby is born. Get your hair cut and your nails done. After the baby is born it may be a long long time before you will be able to do that again. If you do get a chance to do it you will be anxious to get back as soon as possible. Take advantage of the time you have and enjoy it before the baby is born.

People, in general, want what is best for you and your baby! In an effort to help you, some well-meaning people may offer you unwelcome advice regarding your pregnancy. You may feel like they are "policing" your moves. Do not be afraid to gently inform them of your obstetrician or midwife's advice regarding any long-standing "no-no's" during pregnancy. Remember, they only want what is best for you and your baby, and may not be up-to-date with the latest suggestions!

Stay active while you are pregnant. Unless your doctor puts you on bed rest, of course. Staying active will ensure that you do not gain too much weight during your pregnancy and also keeps your muscles from atrophying. If you stay active during your pregnancy, recovery will be much easier.

Learn to say no to people who want to feed you every time they see you. You are supposed to up your calories during pregnancy but that doesn't mean you need to eat constantly. Saying thanks, but no thanks is perfectly acceptable so don't hesitate to use it.

Remove any rings that you have. Your fingers will swell if it is hot during your pregnancy and the last thing you want is a ring that won't come off that they have to cut off. It is also important to remove any belly button piercing, so that you don't get any rips or tears.

If you are one of the unfortunate ones that suffer from heartburn while pregnant, there are over-the-counter remedies that you can take. Most of these will contain magnesium or calcium, and should ease your discomfort. As with any medicine you take during pregnancy, discuss this with your health care provider.

Avoid exercises that involve lying on your back or lifting overhead. You could end up doing damage to yourself or the baby so it is safer to avoid them. Try to do all of your exercises in a position where you are supported. Modify workouts to allow you to sit down or hold on to something for safety.

If you want to be more aware during your pregnancy, you have to have the information at hand that can give you the pointers needed. Sure this isn't rocket science, but each step of pregnancy can introduce new anxiety and concerns, which you can use these tips to appease a great deal.
