During pregnancy, an expecting mother has to make it a point to eat calorie-rich, nutritious, and easily digestible food. Increase the number of servings, as you approach the third trimester, so that you do not feel hungry. Make sure you at least drink two litres of water per day.
In the third trimester of pregnancy, an expecting mother should consume the following each day:
An expecting mother should make sure that she includes the following kinds of food in her diet during pregnancy:
It is best to limit the intake of caffeine, not exceeding more than 200 mg everyday. Alcohol and tobacco should be totally avoided as consumption of these have been linked to fetal and maternal complications. Likewise, avoiding artificial sweeteners is recommended, especially the ones containing saccharine. Many families ask the mother-to-be eat a lot of ghee so as to facilitate smoother delivery. However, do exercise restrain on sweets and fatty foods, as you will only add more weight. Soft cheeses and raw seafood are best avoided to prevent any risk of infection.
You can safely have sex as you get closer to your due date until your doctor says otherwise (or until your water breaks). Stop if it gets too uncomfortable or if you notice spotting or bleeding after intercourse. If that happens, contact your doctor and he or she should be able to determine the cause or suggest you come in for an evaluation.
Here are some best positions that wouldn't harm you or the fetus.
Lie on your side curled in a C, as your partner faces your back and enters your vagina from behind. Nice and cozy.
Lie side by side with your partner, facing one another. He slips his leg over yours (your leg is straight and to the side or bent at the knee) and enters you from an angle. Another good one for keeping his weight off your belly.
You get the picture. This one’s great for controlling the pace. (And don’t be self-conscious about your belly—it’s beautiful.)
Lie face-up on the edge of the bed, with your feet on the floor. Your partner stands or bends over you. Just make sure he doesn’t thrust too deeply.
Support yourself on all fours (on the bed or floor) as your partner enters from behind. Wonderful way to get some g-spot stimulation but again, beware of major thrusting.
