Nutrition Tips for your Third Trimester

Saturday, April 6, 2013



I am not a nutritionist & all of the information I am providing is from my own personal research & should never substitute what is recommended by your doctor. Remember you should always consult with a doctor before starting any nutrition plan.

In addition to your prenatals the following are important vitamins & nutrients that are valuable specifically to your third trimester...

Vitamin C; protects cells against damage & keeps the immune system in good shape. Vitamin C also plays a role in the functioning of the placenta. Following are some quick snacks that are high in Vitamin C...
  • Strawberry 
  • Kiwi 
  • Oranges 
  • Broccoli 
  • Cauliflower
  • Red Pepper
Thiamin helps to release energy from foods, which is very important during the last trimester when your energy levels are dropping again like in the first.
  • Pork
  • beans
  • brown rice
  • green veggies
Another common issue in the third trimester is constipation because the growing baby squashes intestines. Plenty of fibre & LOTS of water are your best defense against this frustrating side effect. Carrying a tumbler full of water was the easiest & most convenient way for me to maintain proper hydration.
  • 64 ounces of water per day
  • whole grain cereal, brown rice, cucumbers, tomatoes & zucchini are all great sources of insoluble fibre (which is the type of fibre that does not dissolve in water & helps move bulk through the intestines).
