4 Tips For Feeling Better During Your Pregnancy

Pregnancy is something which isn’t always a smooth ride for everyone.  Whether it’s your first pregnancy or your fourth, every time is different.  

Some women have a fairly comfortable pregnancy with little weight gain and hardly any disruption in their daily lives.  If you want to try to aim for a pregnancy that sounds more like that than one which is full of weight gain, discomfort, and feeling out of your element for 9 months, then follow these tips to be at your best while you’re pregnant.

Get Yourself Comfortable And Cute Clothes

Getting yourself clothes which fit you not only comfortably, but also look good is essential.  When you give yourself the proper clothes in order to not only feel good on the inside but on the outside too, you are eliminating the common problem of feeling frumpy.

Many pregnant women make the mistake of trying to squeeze into their normal clothes during their second and third trimester which isn’t doing your tummy any favors.  You won’t only be putting too much pressure on your abdomen but you won’t look as good.  Rather than wearing clothes which are designed to fit the contours of a pregnant body, you’ll look more like a stuffed sausage spilling out at every crevice.

Buy a Maternity Pillow

As your stomach starts to swell, you will find that you are less and less comfortable at night.  This is because your hips can start to feel a lot of pressure from the weight, and also because there are a lot of changes going on in your body which can naturally affect your sleep.

When you buy a maternity pillow you can cuddle it and adjust your body to how it needs to be in order to accommodate your belly.

Limit Your Sugar Intake

Although it can be tempting to want to eat whatever you want when you’re pregnant, it’s advised to try to control yourself.

When you allow yourself to gain more weight than the recommended amount you’re just setting yourself up for more work later on.  

Limiting your sugar is one of the most important things during your pregnancy and will ensure the least amount of weight gain.

Walk Every Day

Staying active and moving your body at a moderate pace at least 30 minutes a day will keep your metabolism up and your body happy.

Not only will it keep your body happy and your baby healthier, but you will keep your muscles strong.  Often women make the mistake of failing to be active during their pregnancy, only to find that in retrospect, they should have kept up with exercise.  If you don’t stay active you will find that the period following childbirth is much more exhausting than had you exercised throughout the 9 months of your pregnancy.
