your walking pattern will change and that is good
; because at last trimester it will be helpful. So now it is important that you be little careful when you are walking and see that you don't bang on something; that will be totally carelessness and it will badly affect your baby.

if possible make it home to be sure of the quality
and don't have anything in hurry and definitely any type of dish or beverages you are having this time should not be hot. Take it only when it comes to the normal room temperature.
iii. It is will be a good idea to avoid hot beverages like tea and coffee totally from your daily intake; the caffeine in it is not good for your baby If you are feeling little crave for it; then have it to very little extent and if you can manage not to have it; then please don't consume it. And even if you do then make sure that they are not too hot.

3. Precautions to be taken from seventh to ninth month of pregnancy (third trimester) :
After reaching your third trimester; it becomes very important to take care of your health and also that of your baby. In this trimester your baby is quite well secured in your womb and your baby is now quite Strong enough to give you little pain when he or she kicks. As now your baby is growing it becomes difficult for your baby to move around a lot. So let see what are the precautions that you should take when you are at your last trimester.
i. As I have mentioned earlier that your baby is growing very fast now; it can be said that your baby is growing everyday; so it is very important that you increase your food intake. It is not that you have to eat for two; but it is compulsory that
you should have at least twenty percent of more proteins; calcium and other minerals
which will be for your baby and it is very important for your baby's growth.
ii. In this last trimester; it will be very difficult for you to have a large amount of meal. Let it be I your lunch time or dinner time. It is sure that you will have problems if you have a good amount of food at a single time. So for this you should divide your time such a way that you are
having something eatables in every two hour
. So that you won't be facing the problem of full stomach and you stomach will have less work digesting your food and also your baby will not have any kind of problem.
iii. This it is bound that you will have
leg cramps and backache
. Especially after you come from a long walk. So it is important that you take proper rest after you come from your walk and if the pain is very much; then simply tell someone to apply some pain relief palm with soft hand; you will feel better after sometime.
iv. This time the best exercise that you can do is lots and lots of walking Yes it is true that you can continue with your normal work; but it is important that you should have your daily walk. And it is really not important to walk for hours; which will be suggested by your elders. It should be comfortable to you.
If you feel like walking less and you feel tired at lot after sometime then go for small walk.
v. It is also possible that now after getting huge from your stomach; it might be difficult for you to go out; and also to have long walk. So for that you can simply have small walk at your home and whenever you feel like. This way your feel of all the insecurity of going out and also you can have your walk whenever you like.
Sleeping will be a very big issue at the last trimester
; so it will be best that you go keep on taking turns from left side to right side. It is sure that you will woke up every time you take a turn or go to bathroom; so for that take a nap whenever you can; by that you will be able to have your proper amount of sleep and also resting at this time is important for you and for your baby.
Some important points to remember during pregnancy:
1. It is important to remember that you are two at the time of pregnancy; so always have your food at time. It is possible that you might don't feel like; but make it a habit to have your breakfast; lunch and dinner at time.

Always do your work on time
; let it be your daily walks; having food and sleep. You should have a proper timetable during pregnancy time; and that will definitely benefit you and your baby.
4. It is possible that
you may have mood Swings a lot during this time
; here you should be able to share your worries and problem with your family and especially your husband. And if you think the problem is worst then it is better to consult your doctor.
5. Carrying a pregnancy for whole nine month is not a joke; but that really doesn't mean that you ignore your husband. Still at this time it is possible to show that you care for him; by cooking something special for him or simply by having a good chat time and just holding his hand with full of love will assure him that you really love him.
Don't avoid your normal exercises and yoga which you were doing before you got pregnant
