Hello mommies! This blog post is specially dedicated to all preggy mommies! I am actually not a supplement person (except 2 years back) haha. So, you have to really force me to take supplements haha.
But when I was pregnant with Jayden, I took all the vitamins and supplements given by the doctor diligently, never skip any of them lol. I was really paranoid about pregnancy at that time because there were lots of bad news I have heard about pregnancy among my friends.
With the terrible nausea during the first trimester, I puke almost everything I ate. My weight dropped during the first trimester. I ate almost nothing! Zzz. If I ate nothing, how can I ensure sufficient nutrients to my baby?
I knew that a healthy body gives a smooth sailing pregnancy and healthy baby.
Here, I have compiled a list of essential and complete nutrient that a preggy mom needs based on the noted given by a Gynae.
Protein: Protein is the composition of large organic molecules; amino acids. Protein is responsible for acting as the building block of the cells of the body. In a pregnant woman, protein is required for both the mother and the baby. A baby’s cellular growth depends on the protein intake of the mother, especially during the second and the third trimesters. During that time, the mother’s body starts to develop and get bigger to attain the capacity of holding the baby in the womb. The breasts and other organs become bigger in order to provide the baby with appropriate nutritional needs. Protein is also required for producing energy in a pregnant woman’s body. During pregnancy, a woman goes through physical exhaustion because she carries another living being inside her body and protein intake becomes mandatory to avoid the exhaustion by producing sufficient energy.
Folic Acid: Vitamin B complex is scientifically known as folic acid. It is usually found in green and leafy vegetables. It acts as a major nutrient in both before and during pregnancy of a woman. The embryo has a neural tube which develops into brain and spine of the baby and if there is any defect in the neural tube during pregnancy, then there is risk of birth defects of spinal cord or brain of the baby. To prevent this, folic acid is a must diet for a pregnant woman. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that women who take the recommended daily dose of folic acid starting at least one month before conception and during the first trimester of pregnancy, reduce their baby’s risk of neural tube defects by up to 70 percent. Various critical defects such as- cleft palate, cleft lip, heart defects and preeclampsia can also occur if folic acid is not added to the pregnancy diet.
Omega 3: This particular nutrient is not synthesized inside the human body. So, it needs to be taken from the dietary supplements. Omega 3 basically helps in maintaining a balance in the regulation of prostaglandin. Prostaglandin is a hormone which functions to maintain blood clots, inflammatory and allergic responses and blood pressure. During pregnancy, the blood pressure tends to be a bit higher than normal because of the overall physiological condition of the mother. This is why, omega 3 is necessary to be consumed during pregnancy.
Calcium: The primary function of calcium is to build strong teeth and bone. During pregnancy, a mother needs to have sufficient amount of calcium intake for the adequate formation of bone for the baby. It is also required to prevent the risk of preeclampsia and hypertension during birth. The regular intake of calcium for women aged from 19-50 years should be 1000mg before, during and after pregnancy.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is generally consumed from fruits. The regular intake of vitamin C for a pregnant woman should be 80mg per day for women aged from 19 to older. Collage is a protein that makes up various bones and cartilages and also provides a protection against skin diseases. But during pregnancy, overuse of vitamin C supplements can cause ill health as well. So the usage should be kept at optimum.
Iron: Iron is a very important mineral which is found both naturally and from dietary supplements. Iron is a major component of hemoglobin which builds up the red blood cells in the body. Iron deficiency may lead a person to have anemia- a blood disorder that result in pallor and weariness. So, if a pregnant woman does not receive the proper amount of iron in her pregnancy diet, then her baby will be in risk to blood diseases.
