ask your wife to eat any thing under the sun (as much she could shove in), which she is comfortable with...that's the point, and it helps..

Try to keep calm and un-agitated.
So stopping the viewing of the mega serials will help definitely.
Let the would-be-mom listen to good soothing music and look at the lovely pictures of Gods like baby Krishna and baby Muruga.
Let her eat satvic food-no need to shove in- :hungry:
and remain pious.
Is it too much to ask or do you feel like surrendering
with the words "Saranam Aiyyappa!"
No medicines - as far as possible. Not even for nausea or head ache. :nono:
Good Luck. :thumb:
By the way when is the "bundle of joy" due? :baby:

Hi, Please let me know what we, me and my wife have to apply in our life..as [er the vedic and ayurvedic rule....
I hope you were blessed with a Super Baby! :becky:

Thanks VR.. she is 1 1/2 years old healthy and fine.

my mom was annoyed with my wife (typical mother in law) for not feeding her child (stuffing her) to manufacture her kind of chubby cheek, dimple chin child like the the 80's amul baby.

but doctor said, she is perfect in height & weight.. we dont buy any special foods, and makes sure the child sits in table, making her to sit on par with us in her tall kid-stool, and dine with us what we eat..it worked..

Wow! Mr C.Ravi seems to know so much more than a mom and a grand mom like me! :clap2:



Nothing like that I know...I have it in my yahoo email personal folder "Health Care" long ago, from the time I got much serious and dreaming about my future wife, my life with her and our life together. So, in my efforts to gather informations pertaining to pregnency care, I googled out and got to know about www.vedicsociety.org . It is a wonderful website with many useful articles.

We can get many info from this site and follow some guidlines as applicable to us. As much as we could find them meaningful, useful and comfortable.

hi kumar,

hopefully, you would treat what shushrutha recommended, after consulting a doctor.

in today's world, the pregnant woman is considered a healthy active and normal person, capable of as much work as prior. the only time
when she needs to slow down, it will naturally be evident, ie closer to the child birth.

pregnancy, especially the first one, is an intense and enjoyable time for the couple to couple, without the accompanying physical

sharing the first views on the ultra sound, observing the shape the stomach change as the baby moves, catering to the new tastes
in food acquired by the lady, wondering how hitherto favourite foods now become unwanted and above all, the gradualy rising of the bun -

nature's wonders.

enjoy the pregnancy, and wishing you and seetha, a healthy bonny baby.

God Bless.
A pregnant woman needs nutritious food, adequate (not too much of it) rest, a modicum of physical exercise and, above all, a pleasing atmosphere in the house. She should avoid seeing,hearing, smelling (often and continuously) whatever is uncomfortable to her.
