People love to tell a pregnant woman what she should and shouldn't be doing. With conflicting advice, new research, and changing guidelines, it can be hard to know which "rules" to follow.

Some do's and don'ts are nothing more than old wives' tales (sorry, grandma, but bending over too far won't hurt the baby). However, when your doctor tells you to hydrate, it's with good reason.

Because you can't believe everything you hear, here's what's real. The stakes are too high not to get it right. And, while this guide is here to help you keep track of what you should be doing during pregnancy, it shouldn't take the place of medical advice from your doctor. Do your research but also be sure to seek guidance specific to your individual pregnancy from your practitioners, not the internet.
