Pregnancy Check List

Assess: Assess your pregnancy status by doing a urine-pregnancy test. Missing period can be due to

conceived. Check the two dark lines on the strip and confirm your gravid state.


Block: Block your dates as per an easy calculation…Just add nine calendar months and seven days with

your first day of last menstrual period. That will be yours expected date of delivery. But, only 4%

pregnant women start labor-pain on that expected date. If everything runs well, almost 80% women

deliver within 2 weeks earlier and one week later of that date.


Curtail: Curtail strenuous physical exercise, prolonged standing, scuba diving and long on road journey.

Curtail tension, anxiety and stress. Stop dieting. Stop smoking and drinking. Cycling, swimming, walking

and low-impact aerobics are recommended in uncomplicated pregnancy.


Diagnose: Diagnose day by day the symptoms of pregnancy in your-self. Nausea and vomiting will be

there as well as loss of appetite. Urinary frequency will be increased. There will be sensation of

heaviness of breasts. Backache, constipation and leg cramps are also common symptoms in gravid state.

These are actually your body’s response to accommodate your growing fetus.


Examine: Examine your body parts in closed door. Look at your breasts. They will become pigmented,

tender and enlarged along with some secretions. You will feel a gradual bulge in lower abdomen. Your

vagina may become soft. You may notice excessive non-irritant mucoid vaginal discharge time to time.

Don’t panic. These are absolutely normal findings.


Follow: Follow healthy dietary tips. Follow a habit of drinking adequate water. Ensure your diet is

balanced and healthy enough. Ensure adequate sleep. Light free hand exercises or sexual activities can

be allowed. Start to take folic acid 5 mg once a day.


Guard: Guard your growing fetus. Be conscious. Few offending agents can seriously hamper fetal

growth. Guard your pregnancy from radiation exposure if you are working in a radiology or oncology

clinic. Few medications like antihypertensive ACE inhibitors, antithyroid drugs, anticancer drugs, lithium
