You’re through the first twelve weeks of pregnancy and you’re now ready to tell the world that you’re expecting. Any morning sickness or tiredness you felt during the first trimester has gone – helped by taking PregmaPlus+ 1 supplements daily of course – and you’re looking forward to what the next twelve weeks are going to bring and developing the ‘pregnancy glow’ that everyone talks about.
While tiredness and energy slumps are most commonly experienced during the first and third trimesters, there are still plenty of significant changes occurring during the second trimester, such as the continuing development of your baby’s brain and spinal cord and the growth of their bones, so it’s just as important as ever to keep up with the ever-growing nutritional demands!
Did You Know That Your Nutritional Requirements Can Increase By 150% During Pregnancy?
Yes, that’s right. Your body is going through significant changes as your pregnancy advances and you continue to nurture your baby to term.
During the 2nd and 3rd trimester you’ll start to notice your tummy expanding and developing into a pregnancy bump. You’ll probably also start to feel more hungry as your baby grows more rapidly. Your body now needs more calcium, vitamin C, vitamin D and DHA to support this growth and help you to stay strong and healthy, together with increased levels of iron to give you more energy to meet the growing demands of the 2nd and 3rd trimesters. You’ll also need extra vitamin B1 to help your body to convert carbs into energy to aid the development of your baby’s nerve, muscle and heart function.
So How Do You Meet These Extra Nutritional Requirements?
We’ve all heard the phrase ‘eating for two’ – and sometimes you’ll really feel like that’s what you’re doing. However, it’s important that you eat healthily at this time so you can give your growing baby (and you) all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals required to become strong and healthy. But, sometimes it can be difficult to do – especially if you’re craving sweets and carbs. Relying on diet alone, particularly if you have a busy lifestyle, often doesn’t cut it.
