Pregnancy is a beautiful and troublesome period. Pregnancy prepares you for something special and exasperating life experience, childbirth. During pregnancy, there are certain unavoidable things all expecting mothers have to do – visiting the OB-GYN doctor, taking prenatal vitamins, getting regular USG scans at a baby scan clinic and taking good care of the bump.
As we all know, pregnancy can be a difficult situation so to make your pregnancy more comfortable, you just need to invest in some useful and smart products. Let’s take a look at them, shall we!
When you’re pregnant you often find discomfort while sleeping. Finding a comfortable sleep position during pregnancy is not an easy task but with the help of a pregnancy pillow, you can have a sound sleep even with a growing bump. Pregnancy pillows are available in various shapes and sizes so choose accordingly. You can get them from your local store and even in popular e-commerce stores.
There are a million reasons to invest in a nursing bra as it provides the necessary support to your growing breasts. Ladies often complain of back pain during pregnancy which generally happens when you wear the wrong bra. Always buy nursing bras of your appropriate bust size. Do not consider them a waste of money as these bras will allow you to nurse your baby after pregnancy.
If you would rather consider buying nursing bras after your pregnancy then go for bra extenders for now to tackle your heavy breasts. Bra Extenders are cost-effective and can be used in the long run.
Supporting your expanding belly is no child’s play. To help you tackle this situation, the belly band has been invented. Belly bands not only help in providing support to your bump and back but also protects your belly from any injury. You can even wear them while you do yoga and exercise.
Hunger pangs are a common phenomenon during pregnancy. There’s nothing to worry about that but remember to not binge eat on unhealthy foods. Instead, keep healthy snacks available at all times. You can include healthy snacks, like chicken sandwich, egg wraps, avocado toast, popcorn, pumpkin chips, trail mix, whole wheat muffins, and so on.
Your feet carry the weight of your entire body and hence get affected the most. Wear comfy shoes and sandals at home and work. Avoid heels as much as you can to be on the safer side.
Good Pregnancy Books
Not everything is available on the internet. Invest in good pregnancy e-books or paperbacks to enlighten yourself.
Anti-Stretch Mark Cream or Lotion
Stretch marks can occur on your breasts, hips, inner thighs, and belly. It’s always better to invest in a good anti-stretch mark cream and apply it during the pregnancy. If you do not prefer store-bought creams and lotions then make your own DIY homemade anti-stretch mark lotion by mixing equal parts of aloe vera gel and coconut oil.
