    Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I take my regular cough/cold/fever medicines when pregnant?

    If you are pregnant and suffer from any of the following: cold, cough, fever, or nausea, it is best to consult your doctor before consuming any medication. Your doctor could advise which medication is appropriate as per your trimester. 

    Do I need to change my diet during my pregnancy?

    It is important to remember that during pregnancy, the diet you eat nourishes and supports your baby’s growth and development. Pregnant mothers need a well-balanced diet that meets their nutritional needs, especially one with lower levels of sugar, salt, and saturated fats.  

    While it’s normal to crave and gain weight during pregnancy, gaining too much or too little could increase the risk of problems. You can also discuss your diet requirements in detail with our dietician. To book an appointment, visit https://medeor.ae/abu-dhabi/book-an-appointment/

    I am having very severe cramps while pregnant; what should I do?

    Cramping occurs in all three trimesters and often results from normal changes during your baby’s development. If you experience minor cramps, try changing your position or doing some relaxation exercises. However, if the cramps don’t go away or are accompanied by vaginal bleeding, report it to your doctor immediately.  

    What can I do about my constipation during the pregnancy?

    Your pregnancy hormones make it difficult for you to have a bowel movement, but you can increase your fluid intake to ease yourself. You can also have a fiber-rich diet and perform simple exercises (per your doctor’s advice). If the problem persists and you need a laxative to get relief, only do so after consulting with your doctor. 

    You can consult our dietician if you need additional help with your diet. To book an appointment, visit https://medeor.ae/abu-dhabi/book-an-appointment/ 

    Does stress affect my pregnancy?

    During pregnancy, it is normal to feel some amount of stress. However, too much stress can increase the chances of having a premature or low birth-weight baby. Therefore, it is important to look after your mental well-being just as you care for your physical well-being.  

    Can I exercise when pregnant?

    Most exercises are safe to perform during pregnancy. But remember to not over-exert yourself and not begin strenuous exercises if you weren’t active before the pregnancy. You can try to do regular exercises or even brisk walks daily. 

    Can I take the flu vaccine if I’m pregnant?

    It is safe to have a flu vaccine from the first few weeks of your pregnancy up to your expected due date. 

    My breasts hurt during my pregnancy. Is it normal?

    Breast pain is often the first symptom during pregnancy because hormones try to work quickly to prepare your breasts for breastfeeding. Apart from pain, you may also notice changes in the size or shape of your nipples or some tiny bumps and darkening of the areolas.  

    Is it normal to feel tired during pregnancy? 

    Feeling weary or even exhausted, especially in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, is normal. You may experience fatigue, nausea, or even feel emotional due to hormonal changes during this time. The only solution is to get as much rest as you can.

    When will I be able to feel my baby move?

    Between 16 and 24 weeks of pregnancy, you should begin to feel your baby’s movements. But you might not begin to feel movements until 20 weeks if this is your first child. The best way to feel your baby’s movements is when you are less active, either at the start or end of your day. When resting, you are more likely to feel the baby’s movements. If you have not felt your baby move by 24 weeks, inform your doctor. 

    What should I do if my baby’s movements are not felt or are less than before? 

    The best way to feel your baby’s movements is when you are less active, either at the start or end of your day. When resting, you are more likely to feel the baby’s movements.  Record the movements around the same time every day. It may help you do this while sitting up or lying on your left side. Ensure you get a minimum of three movements in one hour and 10-12 movements in 12 hours. Studies have shown that smoking cigarettes or shisha can reduce your baby’s movement, so we advise you not to smoke during pregnancy.

    Can I travel to my home country during my pregnancy?

    You must have a medical certificate or letter from your doctor if traveling during or after your 29th week of pregnancy (depending on the airline). If you need to travel, it is best to contact your airline provider for details and get your doctor’s consent.

    What happens in the Medeor Mater antenatal class?

These classes can help prepare mothers for the journey ahead and give them the confidence and information they need.

    What should I carry in my pregnancy bag?
