Congratulations! You’re halfway there!!!!

Congratulations!  You’re halfway there!!!! 

Your uterus is just about even with your navel, and your waistline is gone until birth. As your thyroid becomes more active you may perspire a bit more.

During pregnancy, your body needs more iron to keep up with your expanding blood volume, as well as for your growing baby and the placenta. Red meat is one of the best sources of iron for pregnant women. Poultry (especially the dark meat) also contains iron. Some common non-meat sources of iron include legumes, soy-based products, spinach, prune juice, raisins, and iron-fortified cereals. [1]
