Doctor Tips, Weeks 14-26

Week 19

As long as you follow the guidelines, fish is an excellent food during pregnancy. More about week 19.

With the return of your appetite, it’s important to take advantage of the chance to get lots of healthy foods into your system! Fish gets a really bad rap in pregnancy, but is actually super important for your developing baby. Many pregnant women avoid fish because of fears of consuming too much mercury, but the truth is that lots of healthy fish options exist that will allow you to avoid high mercury levels while getting you the healthy fish oils that your baby needs. These fish oils (specifically DHA) are very important in your baby’s brain and eye development.

  1. This is one of the only memories I was actually able to keep up with during my 2nd pregnancy! With my 1st, I kept a pregnancy journal of sorts with things that were happening, doctor’s notes from each appointment, belly pictures each week, nursery updates… With #2, #1 was in full-blown toddler mode, so belly pictures were my only documented memory. I’m glad I made myself continue that tradition!

    1. It’s so true, the 2nd (and 3rd and 4th….) kids start having way less documentation even from before they are born! Thank goodness for smartphones these days 🙂
