  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    In 8th month of pregnancy, extreme precautions have to be taken to avoid premature delivery. While travelling, make sure you carry along mini meals and avoid staying hungry for long time. Keep drinking sips of water.
    Also you should start doing prenatal yoga which includes light squats and muscle toning postures. These will help your muscle relax and also be prepared for delivery.
    It is right time to include high protein food items such as pulses, eggs, sprouts, soyabean in your diet. After coming home from work, take atleast half an hour rest by lying down on your left side. Be observant of any swelling in legs and feet as it is expected due to travelling. If you see swelling, try keeping your feet at a little height.


    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
