    Hi DH273,


    I wouldn't do anything tiring in the first 3 months. I stopped my gym and climbing up stairs too. I am avoiding prunes, papaya, bananas, pineapple..

    I feel bloated too but its just until you've crossed the first trimester and the baby is safe. After that avoid any strainous activities.

    Re massages, foot massages are fine just tell them you're expecting so they're not too hard. Avoid back massages.. shoulder massages are fine.

    Hi DH273,

    During pregnancy you should still keep the baby in your womb by providing stimulation, pregnancy health checks on a regular basis, watching the daily diet, including foods to notice what needs to be eaten for it. Things To Avoid During Pregnancy:

    Wearing high heels
    Pregnant women should not use high heels, especially after a pregnancy past the age of 7 months. High heels can cause the body's equilibrium.

    The use of high heels can also cause stretching of the muscles in the lumbar region. Pregnant women will often complain of pain and stiffness in the lumbar region (low-back pain). Even if the pregnancy is getting bigger, there can be trauma to the muscles in the lumbar region. In addition, changes in body axis ensued; body will be more inclined to the front, so as compensation, the pregnant woman tried to straighten up by stretching the back and waist muscles. Well, when the load on the front of the pregnant body grew, so did stretch the muscles in the waist and back. As a result, waist and back were sore,
