Perform unsuitable exercises
It is good to be exercised while you are pregnant but you must be clear about what exercises you can do and what you should not do, for example, what you should not do is high impact, high effort exercises. If you are someone who has kept exercising continuously and with strong exercises, we advise you to do it with a physical trainer who will guide you.

Drink little water
We advise you to have a routine of drinking water, do not wait when you feel thirsty, do not go to that extreme, drink water regularly, always carry a bottle with you so that you do not need it.
Do not hydrate the skin
It is normal for stretch marks to appear on the skin during and after pregnancy, due to the stretching and gathering of the skin, any change in the skin causes it, so it is important and necessary to constantly hydrate it, we suggest twice a day with coconut. Remember not only to hydrate the abdomen but also the legs, buttocks, bust, hips, all the parts that have changes as the baby grows.
Fear of childbirth
It is logical that you feel fear, that you have the uncertainty of that moment that you are going to live, where the important thing is that you are prepared, that you have knowledge of the situation, of everything that you are going to go through so that you mentally know it, obviously at the moment you will have the care and guidance of your doctor.
