Nine long months of pregnancy lead to a pleasant blessing in the end. Mothers do enjoy the journey along the way, but they encounter challenges. It’s not easy being pregnant- the morning sickness, the discomfort in sleeping, and so much more. Beyond that, trying to fit into your old clothes, heartburn, the bodily changes are some other things a pregnant lady must endure.
Some of the things are inevitable. It is a choice one makes and a happy one, indeed. But there are ways you can deal with some of the things you go through as a carrying woman.
1. Deal with Leg Cramps- Did you know that having something as simple as a banana could help you deal with the leg cramps that come with pregnancy? Nutrients like Potassium, Magnesium, and Calcium helps with the cramps caused by several reasons, including the change in the rate of metabolism and vitamin deficiency, to name a few.
2. Treat Heartburn with ease- Pregnant women often complain of heartburn, and we can all agree it is very uncomfortable a feeling. But a simple mix of warm milk and honey does the deal.
3. Ditch the maternity bras- Sellers claim that maternity bras are the thing for you, but it is not as comfortable as a sports bra. Why? Well, for starters, they’re less expensive. They expand to fit your body perfectly, and they can be reused even after you’ve had the baby.
4. A Pregnancy Pillow- If you’re someone who enjoys sleeping on the stomach, then your bump might come in the way. But a pregnancy pillow comes with a hole in it that allows you to place the tummy in it. It allows you to sleep on your chest, giving your back a little break, and it isn’t uncomfortable either.
5. Morning Sickness- The first few months of a pregnancy could be most difficult for a pregnant woman since she has to undergo morning sickness. Nausea and vomiting are rather difficult to deal with. But here’s a tip to save you from it. Morning sickness is a cause of an empty stomach. Snack up on something light the moment you wake up, so you don’t feel nauseous.
6. Hydrate- Staying hydrated is most important, pregnant or not. But during pregnancy, it plays an even more significant role. A sufficient amount of water aids in the process of digestion. More importantly, it is what contributes to the formation of the amniotic fluid that keeps the fetus safe.
Here’s to a healthy pregnancy journey and a healthy baby ahead!!
