Healthy pregnancy habits

I'm currently on pregnancy number two, and with so-so eating habits during pregnancy number one and much better eating habits now, I can say first-hand just how much better I feel this time around. During pregnancy, it's extra important to get all your essential vitamins and nutrients in order for your baby to get everything they need to develop.
While it's tempting to want to eat everything in sight when pregnant and not give a care in the world about calories and nutrition facts, you're only harming yourself and your baby in the long run by caving in to every whim. Making healthy choices during pregnancy is the best thing you can do for your growing baby.
For a definitive guide to a fit and healthy pregnancy, be sure to grab a copy of my ebook – Fit To Be Pregnant: 12 Steps to the Healthy, Comfortable, Fit Pregnancy of Your Dreams, available now on Amazon! Here are the 5 healthy habits that I follow that I believe are keeping me (and baby!) feeling good and strong!


I remember being constantly lectured in my last pregnancies by my doctor about how little water I was drinking. Try to drink 3 Liters (about 100 ounces) of water each day while you’re pregnant, and add 8 ounces for every hour of exercise.
Stress can be harmful to an unborn baby, so it’s important to manage stress during pregnancy. Join us and receive exclusive content, interviews, tips for nutrition and exercise during and after pregnancy, the latest news, and MUCH more! I keep waiting for the aches and pains and fatigue and heaviness to appear, like they did in my other three pregnancies, but so far it hasn’t. I’ve been able to continue on with my high intensity interval training and strength training that I was accustomed to before pregnancy.


I was plagued with constant heartburn and constipation during my last 3 pregnancies, and I’ve been completely normal this time around. According to research, DHA makes baby smarter, lowers inflammation in your pregnant body, lowers baby’s chance for allergies, and lowers your chance of experiencing post-partum depression. The American Pregnancy Association also recommends avoiding raw meats, deli meats, fish that is high in mercury, soft cheese and unwashed veggies.
