Good pre-natal care is vital. This means that you need to see an obsetrician right away so that they can monitor you and ensure that everything goes smoothly. You must obey all instructions that they give you. You must also stop ingesting anything that will hurt the baby. This includes alcohol, any illicit drugs, and any tobacco products.

Now that you are pregnant, you will need to seek prental care. You should have monthly visits during the first two trimesters (from week 1-28), biweekly from 28 to 36 weeks of pregnancy, and weekly after week 36. You should also take vitamins with at least 400 mcg of folic acid to help prevent neural tube defects.

The first thing that you should do is to make an appointment with your doctor. Make sure that you are taking your prenatal vitamin everyday and avoiding substances that can be harmful to you and your baby such as drugs, nicotine, alcohol, etc. It is very important for you to be as healthy as possible for your unborn baby.
