broccoliDuring pregnancy, it’s suggested to watch how much salt and salty foods you eat. Too much may make your body keep water, and lead to bloating. Try to get 1500-2300mg of sodium (salt) a day-your doctor can help you find out how to get in this range.

Eating foods that have a lot of potassium will help your body flush out the sodium quicker-foods like bananas and raisins. Foods to avoid include salted nuts, chips, pickles, and processed foods.

Read the labels on your food-they’ll list how much sodium is in each serving. If you’re grabbing fast food, you could look on the website of the restaurant to see nutrition facts.
