Eating for two does not mean doubling your intake. 300 extra calories a day is appropriate if you are within a normal weight range and average activity level. Since everything you eat your baby eats, avoid junk food.
Drink 8-10 glasses of fluids a day to keep your urine clear and not yellow.
Your weight gain should be 25-35 pounds total, with approximately 10 pounds gained in the first 20 weeks pregnancy and pound a week thereafter.
Avoid raw meat/game and unpasteurized dairy products to decrease your risk of contracting Listeria.
Having sex will not hurt your baby. You may continue throughout your pregnancy unless your doctor advises you not to. However, avoid douching.
Continue wearing seat belts low and snug throughout your pregnancy.
Good dental hygiene, which involves regularly brushing and flossing, may prevent infections and preterm birth.
If you have a cat, avoid cleaning the litter box while you are pregnant. (If you have to, clean the box every day and wear gloves, then wash your hands thoroughly.) Cat feces can carry toxoplasma, which is a parasite that can cause the infection toxoplasmosis that you can pass on to your baby.
I feel so lucky to have had the doctors at the Women’s Clinic for all three of my deliveries and GYN care. They provide high quality, compassionate, evidenced based care and Cheyenne is lucky to have such a great group!
I absolutely have loved it here! We just finished having our second kiddo and have worked with the vast majority of doctors here and they are all excellent!

I have been going to Dr. Storey for 14+years. He is extremely caring, professional, and I trust him with my health and wellness 100%. The staff has always been friendly and professional. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
