Pregnancy Quiz - Are You A Smart Mom-To-Be?

All those pregnant ladies out there - are you game for a pregnancy quiz? Let's test your knowledge about pregnancy and how comfortable you are with handling those nasty pregnancy symptoms that grip your body at this time.

Is Your Weight Gain Appropriate?

Pregnancy DOES NOT mean eating for two, as commonly believed. You need to add only 300 calories extra in your daily diet. Excess weight causes problems like diabetes and high blood pressure during pregnancy. Underweight women may also face problems like difficulty in conception and risk of delivering underweight babies.

  • Underweight: 28 - 40 Pounds
  • Normal Weight: 25 - 35 Pounds
  • Overweight: 15 - 25 Pounds
  • Obese: 11 - 20 Pounds

Do You Exercise?

If you think you should not exercise during pregnancy, you are wrong. (It's good you took this pregnancy quiz). Wake up and look around! The whole world is busy keeping themselves fit and this INCLUDES pregnant women. The type and amount of exercise depends on your health condition. Your doctor is the best person to consult about it. By starting a workout regime that benefits heart and lungs and strengthens your muscles before pregnancy, you are preparing yourself to handle the pregnancy symptoms, labor, and delivery in a better manner.

Is Your Diet Balanced?

If you are into bad eating habits, you should postpone getting pregnant until you improve your diet! This is because what you have eaten before pregnancy and what you eat during pregnancy both have an impact on the development of your baby. Your diet is the major source of nutrition and energy for your developing baby. Folic acid is one indispensable nutrient during pregnancy. This B vitamin prevents neural tube defects, congenital heart disorder, and cleft lip in your baby.

How Many Cups Of Coffee Do You Take?

According to studies, it is safe to drink 1 cup of coffee a day (12 ounces). If you are absolutely addicted and can not cut the habit, you need to make sure you have no more than 3 cups. Excess caffeine increases your risk of developing high blood pressure during pregnancy and even increase the risk of miscarriage! Also, do not ignore this medical study report: with the increase in consumption of caffeine, there is a decrease in a woman's fertility.

Do You Smoke Or Drink?

If you have come to this website, it is because you want information on how to have a safe pregnancy and a healthy baby. Smoking and Drinking are pretty much the worst things you can do to your developing baby. So if you said "yes" to this pregnancy quiz question, then you are not a good or smart mom-to-be at all. If you are not aware that cigarettes and alcohol are harmful to you and especially to your baby, then you need a serious reality check. This also goes for smoking and drinking while trying to get pregnant. Not only do they lower your fertility, but the most dangerous time in your new baby's life is those first few weeks. Smoking or drinking will drastically increase the chances of a miscarriage.

Did You Have A Medical Checkup Before Getting Pregnant?

It would be wise to undergo a medical checkup before getting pregnant. This gives you an idea about your health status and what precautions you need to take during pregnancy. Also, your diet and exercise plan can be developed based on your medical record.

Are You Happy And Relaxed?

We know it's difficult to stay relaxed with all those drastic changes taking place in your body. However, try to keep stress levels down as much as possible. A happy, positive, and relaxed mind and body can handle pregnancy better than a stressed and anxious one. As they say, "it's all in the mind!"
