    Checklist First Trimester Choose a healthcare provider that you are comfortable with and make your first prenatal appointment.

    If you smoke - quit. Apart from danger to your own health, the smoke you inhale can affect your unborn baby.

    Do your best to eat well. Begin tracking your weight gain. Pregnancy only requires an extra 300 Calories per day. Avoid unsafe foods such as soft cheese, raw eggs, pâté, raw seafood, or foods high in nitrates such as processed meats.

    Begin a prenatal vitamin containing 400 mcg (micrograms) of folic acid per day to reduce the incidence of neural tube defects such as spinal bifida.

    Schedule your tour and childbirth education classes.

    Checklist Second Trimester Pre-register at Bayfront Baby Place.
