A Well Balanced Diet and Yoga

There are a number of aches and pains that come with pregnancy and it used to be accepted as just part of having a baby. Doctors are recommending a well balanced diet and proper exercise, especially yoga, to ward off aches and pains and to alleviate many other complaints. Here are just a few pregnancy aliments that a good diet and some yoga can remedy.

A common complaint during pregnancy is tooth and gum problems. To help keep your teeth healthy, and also your baby's, make sure you get enough Calcium and Vitamin C. It is also not uncommon for many women to feel dizzy or lightheaded during pregnancy, especially if they have gone too long without eating. This is why it is so important to eat frequent small meals and stay hydrated throughout the day. Eating small, nutritious meals and staying hydrated will boost your blood sugar and help prevent dizziness.

Leg Cramps and Swelling

Sometime during your second trimester, you may find yourself waking up in the middle of the night to leg cramps. Leg cramps can come from not getting enough Calcium. Also, leg cramps could implicate a shortage of Magnesium or could be from dehydration. Either way, make sure you are getting enough Calcium and Magnesium. If you suffer from leg cramps, you might find it helpful to drink a glass of milk or have a piece of cheese before you go to bed at night.

Swelling is another problem during pregnancy. While severe swelling could be a sign of preeclampsia, there is a certain amount of swelling that is normal during pregnancy. More than seventy five percent of all pregnant women experience some sort of swelling. The most common cause for swelling is too much water retention. Staying away from salty foods will help you keep the swelling to a minimum.

Hormones and Dry Skin

During pregnancy, hormones may prevent hair from falling out at its normal rate and hair may be fuller, however, there are some women who find that their hair is lacking in luster during pregnancy. This could be due to a deficiency of vitamins or an inefficient diet.

Some women suffer from dry skin, which can be cured by drinking plenty of fluids to increase moisture in the body. If you have dry skin, eat more Omega-3 rich foods, seeds and nuts.

Some women may suffer from skin discoloration during pregnancy. Blotchiness could be a folic-acid deficiency, so make sure you are taking your prenatal vitamins.

Stay in tune with what your body is feeling and adjust your diet accordingly.
