Must start a Parental Vitamins..What I used to have was Mom C Tab. Ask your doctor to recommend you.
Choose your gynaecologist and go for Regular Check ups. Go for necessary tests as those of Hb etc to check whether or not you are having any kind of iron deficiency or not lacking any nutritional requirements . As I had very low Hemoglobin (8.5) when I was expecting so I was given injections and tablets to meet atleast 11 g/dL.
FOODS TO AVOID WHEN EXPECTING:
Frankly speaking, I used to hate taking any kind of meat especially in my first trimester. Even I used to hate opening refrigerator. But one should avoid raw seafood, raw eggs, or underdone meat. You know there are few girls who say they crave for raw meat. Every pregnancy is different.
Apart from this, pregnant women should avoid having;
1. Unpasteurized dairy products.
2. Alcoholic consumption.
3. Caffeinated beverages.
