Pregnancy First Trimester recipes
Last Updated : Dec 23,2017
The first 3 months of pregnancy are called the “First Trimester”. Throughout the Pregnancy, your baby needs a ready supply of energy and a high quality of nutrients for its growth. It is during the first few weeks that the fetus begins to form organs and the heartbeat can be detected by the second month. Along with protein, calcium and iron, with more focus on folic acid which is essential for the brain and spine development of the fetus. Healthy Tomato Soup, Palak Toovar Dal and Til chikki are a few well researched recipes just for you to make up for your folic acid requirement.
During these early months you may feel nauseated and want to throw up frequently. If you are one amongst those women, trying chewing on cardamom or opt for dry snacks like Bajra Khakhra, Golpapdi etc. Sipping water, Juices or shakes from time to time will also help to keep nausea at bay. Turn to healthy options like Strawberry Chickoo Milkshake, Fig and Apricot Shake or try your hand on any combination of fruits available in your refrigerator. These don’t have strong flavor and lack strong smells which avoids aggravating nausea.
It is likely that you lose weight in the beginning months, but remember to continue with fluid intake along with small and frequent meals. Recipes like Broccoli and Baby Corn Stir-fry, Cucumber Curd Rice, Jowar Bajre ki Roti and many more will help you gain those necessary nutrients for you and our baby both.
You can try meditation or yoga under expert supervision along with a healthy diet – it will help keep you relaxed and reduce stress.
