According to certain studies, it is stated that most miscarriages occur during the first 13 weeks.
1 out of 4 women would experience a miscarriage in her lifetime.
There are many factors that can cause miscarriage in each trimester.
An average woman carries her pregnancy for nine months. This nine months is divided into three months each..
The first three months are known as the first trimester…
The next three months are known as the second trimester…
While the last three months are known as the third trimester…
In each of these three trimesters, there are certain foods and fruits you are expected to eat to help the development of your fetus.
This is because, throughout the nine months your baby will feed from the food you are eating or the drinks you are taking. So it is important you eat healthy.
Miscarriages occurs for different reasons and at each trimester, it could be caused by a particular reason.
For example any miscarriage that occurs in the first trimester can be as a result of any of the following :
*** Chromosomal abnormality which are factors that are wrong with the baby’s chromosomes and could be caused by
I. A damaged egg
II. A damaged sperm cell
III. Problem that came up as a result when the zygote went through the division process…
To put it mildly:
The expectant MOTHER’S health conditions plays a critical role in the fetus development and can also affect her pregnancy…
*** Viral infections which can weaken the mothers immune system, thereby leading to a miscarriage.
*** Hormonal problems.
*** Smoking, alcohol or excessive caffeine intake and other dangerous lifestyle habits
*** Unhealthy eating habits
*** other unexplainable factors
The good news is, you can avoid having a miscarriage if you just do the following:
1. Exercise regularly.
