In your final trimester, nutritional issues such as your choice of food, the time of the day you eat it, and how much you eat at one sitting, can directly impact you and your baby’s well-being. Therefore, it's critical to pay attention to your diet.
Your baby's fat and protein needs are at their peak over the next few weeks, so be sure to eat balanced meals. Good sources of protein include seeds, nuts, eggs, beans, meat, and poultry. A varied diet, rich in fruit and vegetables, will help to further develop your baby's immune system. Your energy requirement will increase as your baby is building layers of fat.
Vitamin K is essential for blood to clot, which is important after childbirth. It may be helpful to have vitamin K now and during the first weeks with your baby, particularly if you are breastfeeding. Colostrum is rich in vitamin K. Even after the initial feeds, your baby will continue to get plenty of vitamin K from your milk.
Even the healthiest of diets need a boost from supplements during pregnancy. In your third trimesters, your doctor will ask you to take supplements of iron and calcium. Your doctor might also prescribe a vitamin D supplement. Although your body gets vitamin D naturally from sunlight, a lot of women in India are deficient in this vital nutrient that helps your body to absorb calcium.
You may also experience acidity or heartburn and indigestion. This is due to the hormonal and physical changes happening in your body during pregnancy. Have small, frequent meals. Eat slowly, have small mouthfuls and chew your food well. To aid digestion, sit up straight while you're eating, and don't lie down for at least an hour after a meal.
