So you are pregnant? Congratulations. You are about to enter the most amazing and terrifying part of your life. This is such an exciting time as your prepare for the birth of your child but there is a lot of fear as well as to if you are ready, how you can afford it all, and if you will be good parents. Trust me, everyone goes through this.
There is also going to be an immense amount of changes in your body. Most of those changes are about to make you quite miserable or, at the very least, quite uncomfortable. You don’t have to be completely miserable however. There are some things you can do to make your pregnancy a lot easier to bear.
Cocoa Butter – your skin is going to itch and it is not going to be as smooth as it once was. Cocoa butter is a great way to counteract that, plus it smells very soothing. It will really help you to feel better and a lot less uncomfortable.
The Pregnancy Wedge – If you do not have one of these, get up from your computer and get one right now. This is the perfect device to help you sleep better and to remove a lot of
pressure off of your back. It actually reduces the amount of weight your belly puts on your back, giving you a much more comfortable sleep. You will find that you are snuggled up with this a lot more than you are with your husband.
Bellyphones – if you listen to all the latest research, music while your child is in the womb is
supposed to be very beneficial in the long-term mental and educational health of your child. Truthfully, it also helps to soothe the child in the womb, and a soothed child makes for a happy mommy. Give your child a much better chance for success while you make your next nine months a lot happier.
Moisture Lotions – you will find that during your pregnancy you are quite likely to get brown
hormonal spots that will stay long after you have your baby. No one wants that. There are great moisturizers that will break up that pigment and remove those age spots to keep your skin looking amazing.
Prenatal Vitamins – Keeping your own health as optimal as possible is quite necessary if you
want to have a healthy baby. That child is taking away a lot of your vitamins and nutrients, especially iron, and so it is imperative that you keep your own levels up so that baby can get from you and you still have enough for yourself. Prenatal vitamins are the perfect solution.
Comfortable Clothes – your body is going to be changing, and so you will want to get clothes that will not only fit you, but also make you feel comfortable and still look good on you. Even if you are not showing, go and look for things you know you would like to wear. You will be glad you did.
