Thanks for posting your query.
First of all, congratulations!
She should get a thorough examination by a Gynecologist and get an Antenatal registration and have a regular follow up as advised.
she should avoid hectic journeys, take enough rest but also do day to day house hold work to keep physically active.
She should take a balanced diet, increase amount of milk especially towards later months. Start taking Folate tablets one tab a day if not already started.
Injection of T-toxoid and ultrasound for fetal well being would be planned by your Gynecologist.
The intercourse should be avoided in the first trimester and later part of the last trimester.
I hope your query has been answered. I will be happy to solve your further queries. In case you are satisfied with my answer, please close the discussion and put a rating for it.
