Mandate Health Checklist

3nd Month

Know Yourself

Body Changes

Week 11

You can’t feel baby moving, but baby is very active.  

Week 12

Your skin is changing; irregular dark patches appear on your face and neck and areolas darken. 

Week 13

Good news! Early pregnancy symptoms, such as morning sickness, start to fade.

Week 14

Congratulations! You have just entered your second trimester.

It’s time to deal with the mood swings 

Week 15

It is best to begin sleeping on your side.

Using several extra pillows or a pregnancy pillow could help.

Nutrition

By the end of the first trimester, the baby’s brain starts developing faster than any other part of the body. Eating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acid and DHA at this stage will provide the nutrients needed to aid in this process.


• Mackerel

• Sardines

• Prenatal vitamin supplements containing EPA or DHA

Sleep

As you reach the second and third trimesters, it is ideal to sleep on the left side. Being in this position maximizes blood flow to the uterus without putting pressure on the liver. Women who experience hip or back pain during pregnancy may find that placing a pillow or two between the knees or bending the knees during sleep can help provide relief.

Week 11

If you’re interested prenatal yoga, find a local studio with classes that fit your schedule or find some videos online.

If you’re looking for a great way to pass the time during these early weeks, consider picking up a few pregnancy books. They can answer your biggest questions and help you de-stress and demystify childbirth and breastfeeding. 

Get some R&R. Give yourself permission to rest when your energy is low.

Week 12

This sounds crazy early, but if you are considering daycare, call a few to see if they have waitlists and when the earliest spots are available. This will help you plan when you need to start looking.

Even if you’re not showing, go ahead and pick some maternity staples to add to your wardrobe. They’re particularly useful if you have a job that requires formal dress, or you go to a lot of events.

Think about a fun way to save and share your ultrasound pictures. You probably won’t have time once the baby’s born.

Brainstorm a fun way to announce your pregnancy. 

Week 13

Decide how and when you’ll share your good news with your boss, coworkers and any friends or family who don’t know yet.

Thinking about a babymoon? Talk locations and start booking travel with your partner in crime.

If you haven’t already, think about starting a pregnancy journal to record this unique time in your life. Dedicate a blank-page journal to it, or if you want some structure, check out The Belly Book or Expecting You.

Week 14

Make a gym date with a friend.

Buy a good pair of sneakers with plenty of arch support to help keep you on the move during the last two trimesters.

Start preparing for maternity leave by listing all your work duties, so they can be completed by others while you’re gone.

Week 15

Clothes getting tight? This is a great time to start buying maternity clothes. You don’t need tons of stuff; instead, create a good maternity capsule wardrobe.

Start a project. Channel that second trimester energy into something that brings you joy, like decorating your nursery, learning to knit or cooking.
