At this time, start paying more attention to your diet, especially being careful to avoid things like alcohol and tobacco. Continue or start to get moderate exercise as often as possible. Start taking a prenatal vitamin and talk to your doctor about which medications you should stop taking. Schedule your first prenatal appointment with your doctor so you can learn more about what to do to help your baby's development.
