Looking good is important to every woman and rarely this changes in pregnancy. Or at least it should be as significant as it was before the time hormones took the better of a woman.
Women may feel as if they are losing control over their own bodies while being pregnant. Hormonal changes happening during that time may make everyone experience new feelings and sensations. Sometimes it may be hard to get out of bed because of the “morning” sickness that lasted the whole day or several days. Looking into the mirror might not be the most pleasant sight of yourself you have ever seen. The hair, the skin and, most of all, the body are going through some drastic changes and you should get adjusted to these facts.
Be Healthy and Beautiful while Pregnant
During pregnancy is not the time to neglect yourself. Embrace the idea that you have a child in the womb and that’s something that should be celebrated. Enjoy the pregnancy and try to take care of your body, because you are as much important as the child you are carrying is. Happiness is somewhat contagious. There are some studies showing that if the mother is happy, the child will also be happier and, not less important, healthier. It is more likely that your child will be more active and agreeable if you are happy. Nursing moms feeling good about themselves and the world around them tend to have better quality milk for their children. Maintaining health and beauty in pregnancy is one of the easiest ways to get rid of the negativity.
Consult your doctor about the diet appropriate for your current condition. All pregnant women have individual needs and if there is something your friend used to like while being pregnant it might not be suitable for you. So, visit your doctor and talk to him about your specific diet requirements, vitamins and supplements and also about skin care. Don’t take any drugs in this condition without prior consultation with the doctor, because many medications may be harmful for an unborn child.
Light physical activity is beneficial and it will prevent gaining excess weight. Doctors advise that the weight in pregnancy should not get over 15 to 20 pounds on top of your normal weight.
Rest and sleep sufficiently. If you don’t sleep enough at night, take a nap during the day.
Take care of yourself and feel beautiful at all times, including the pregnancy. There is no need to hide the fact you are bearing a child, so wear the clothes that reveal this fact and enjoy every moment of it.
