Pregnancy diet plan first trimester

There are some rules that must be observed when talking about healthy nutrition for the pregnant woman in the first three months of pregnancy in particular, and these rules:

Know that folic acid is one of the most important nutrients for a pregnancy diet plan in the first trimester of pregnancy at all, as it is the element responsible for the formation of the nervous system of the fetus, and it is preferable to start taking folic acid supplements as soon as the decision to conceive is made, and before it actually occurs.

 

Be careful that you will feel a lot of nausea and vomiting in the first months of pregnancy, and therefore some adjustments must be made, such as eating alternatives to some foods that you may refuse to eat during this period, such as replacing meat and chicken with fish and vegetable protein, and also replacing milk with cheese or yogurt, and so on.
Reduce the fats in the cooking process, and rely on healthy fats, such as ghee or olive oil.
Rely on whole grains as a source of carbohydrates.

Drink adequate amounts of water, at least two and a half liters in the summer and two liters in the winter. Divide the meals into three medium-sized meals and two small meals between meals, while being careful not to reach complete satiety.

This does not preclude the need to consult a doctor and follow-up and inquire about any problem that you may face during this period. The first-trimester pregnancy diet plan being mentioned here should be followed in accordance with the doctor’s advice as pre-existing medical conditions like high blood pressure or diabetics may require you to avoid some of the food that would be good under normal circumstances.
