Mistakes that pregnant women often make

Pregnancy is an extremely beautiful period of your life, but also one in which you have to be four-eyed at everything you do and eat. Any wrong move can cost you the health of your future baby. Here are the mistakes that pregnant women often make!


Food is one of the things you have to be very careful about. There are plenty of foods that are forbidden. Among the most dangerous are:

  • raw meat (fish, seafood, etc.);
  • or raw;
  • alcohol;
  • liver;
  • raw milk;
  • what do you have;
  • cheese cream;
  • sausage;
  • certain types of fish (with methylmercury).

Also, not even adopting the premise "I eat for 2, I can consume anything" is not very healthy and it can cost you the health of the pregnancy, and implicitly yours. The balanced diet rich in vitamins and essential nutrients is the most appropriate during this period.

Here are some tips and recommendations from the moms in the community, who on the site's forum discussed the mistakes in pregnancy.

Here are some of them:

Nicon: I tried to feed myself as healthy as possible. In the first months it was harder because I had some terrible crumbs and I couldn't eat anything, losing 2 kg. Only after 3 months I started eating normal. We eat fruits and vegetables, meat, dairy, some bakery products in reasonable quantities, meaning we don't eat as much as two. I avoided the feta cheese and the cheese with mold, which do not know what fermentations contraindicated in pregnancy.

Ruxidada: I would like to point out that vegetables and fruits should be thoroughly washed, dairy products should be pasteurized, and meat should be well done - not in the blood.

Sick lady: I avoided the canning, minced meat, cheese from the peasants, the little ones, etc.

Lolita and Kevin: During the pregnancy I ate a lot of dairy products, well-fried meat (although I do not like it), fish, foods containing iron, many vegetables and fresh fruits. I did not eat sweets, caffeine, fats, fries, sugary drinks. In fact, everything I've eaten during pregnancy is eating now.


Many women hardly give up this vice, even when they become pregnant. They also go on the premise that it is better to continue smoking than to leave because otherwise they harm the baby.

It is true that it is better to quit smoking before becoming pregnant. But smoking remains equally harmful and can cause very serious problems in the fetus. It can affect the lung and brain development of the baby. Also, these children are born with a high risk of developing asthma.

Weight loss diet

If you have been pregnant with a few extra kilos than you intended to have at the time of conception, do not try to drop them just now. A pregnant diet brings a lot of risks to the fetus: it can no longer procure its essential nutrients and can be born underdeveloped, with too little birth weight and is prone to a lot of conditions.


Hair removal with wax is not dangerous in all cases. There are women who support this type of hair removal very well without any problems. But in many cases there is the danger of blood vessels breaking and creating a spider-like appearance on the surface of the skin. Various common skin conditions can occur during pregnancy. This is caused by hormonal changes and blood flow in pregnancy.

Some spa and salon treatments

In trying to keep yourself as beautiful as possible during pregnancy and taking care of your skin and silhouette, you continue to attend spa salons during pregnancy. But you have to be very careful because there are a number of treatments that are dangerous in pregnancy:

  • wraps;
  • phthalate products;
  • laser hair removal;
  • body treatments that include high temperatures;
  • sauna;
  • both hot;
  • solar etc.
