Preparing your body is an essential step in planning for an HG pregnancy. Being as healthy as possible will give you strength to endure.
Some moms find these strategies helpful:
- Get therapy to address trauma from previous pregnancies
- Take a high quality B complex prior to pregnancy to ensure adequate storage.
- Exercise to regain physical strength.
- Detox your system.
- Gain about 10% over your ideal body weight can help. Remember, too much weight gain is associated with more complications, and low body weight is associated with more hospital visits.
