Numerous studies prove that a vitamin D deficiency weakens the health. The body usually forms vitamin D when sunlight or UVB radiation hits the uncovered skin. In the dark winter months, the body receives too little UVB rays.
However, the reserves stored in the summer are enough months. The lack of vitamin D can lead to numerous health problems because the hormone strengthens the immune system, the bone density, prevents hypertension and protects against fatigue and depression.
You strengthen your health if you have at least two- to walk three times a week in the fresh air. Five to thirty minutes will suffice to form sufficient vitamin D. But also during the work you have the opportunity to refuel sun. Open the window and enjoy the invigorating sun rays on the skin for a few minutes. Many medical doctors advise against a visit to the solarium. Since most devices do not emit UVB radiation, the body also does not form vitamin D.
2. Get out into the fresh air
A walk through the red-gold autumn forest is balm for the soul and brightens the mood. Walk as often as you can outdoors. With regular exercise, you also strengthen your veins, since walking activates the so-called calf muscle pump.
Swollen legs unfortunately belong to the most frequent complaints in the pregnancy. Each time you move the foot or legs, activate the corresponding "muscle pumps" that carry the blood back to the heart.
These tips help you preserve your veins during pregnancy.
third Strengthen your immune system
During pregnancy, your immune system protects especially the unborn baby. Therefore, pregnant women are particularly susceptible to diseases. In the autumn, especially cold symptoms can be annoying. A balanced diet with whole grain products and fresh vegetables supplies the body with all the important vitamins and minerals.
Drink at least 1.5 liters of water, herbal teas or fruit juice scabs. Do sports regularly and often go for a walk in the fresh air to keep your circulation going.
Stress is also particularly stressful on the physical constitution of the pregnant woman. Try to avoid hustle and bustle by doing work and accepting help from the family, friends or colleagues. Your body needs regular rest periods to relax.
4. Send your taste buds on discovery journey
Autumn gives us a lush palette with delicious fruits and vegetables. Go to the market at least once a week and cover up with fresh ingredients. If you are looking for something new, you can also discover new products such as parsnips, chard, or beet.
These are full of vitamins and minerals and taste delicious. You can also eat your vegetables without having to eat. This will help you minimize weight gain during pregnancy.
5. Dress in the bulb principle
The temperatures in autumn are extremely jumpy. Therefore, dress appropriately according to the onion principle by pulling several layers on top of each other. So you are prepared for every weather. Always ensure that you do not completely cool down. This weakens your immune system and makes you vulnerable to diseases.
In autumn, the soil becomes slightly slippery due to the damp foliage. Therefore wear flat shoes with non-slip soles. Incidentally, your shoe size may change during pregnancy. Too small shoes damage your veins.
6. Your skin needs more care now

Make sure that your skin care products are adapted to the changing skin situation. Optimal are pH-neutral cosmetics without preservatives and perfume as they can irritate the skin. Dry room air can be improved with wet cloths on the radiators or using special humidifiers. Regular ventilation also improves the room climate.

A pregnancy is exhausting for the body. But also the psyche is easily put into a state of misery by self-doubt or the feeling of overpowering. These negative emotions can be amplified quickly by cloudy rain.
This can be a bath, a coffee or tea break by candlelight or a time out on the sofa with relaxing music. Think about a small ritual that flatters your soul every day. This does not have to last long.
Particularly in the cold season pay attention to the signals of your body. Besides the pregnancy, there are other factors that can strain your body just during this time. With a little extra help, however, it is a wonderful time to be pregnant
