We all love shopping for new clothes for Christmas, but for this Christmas keep in mind to buy clothing which make you feel comfortable in and easy to manage the extra weight of the baby bump. Buy loose fitting clothes or special dresses which come with bump supporters.
2. Avoid Alcohol
We know Christmas is the time to eat, drink and make merry, but this christmas enjoy a glass of some refreshing non alcoholic drink instead of alcohol. As Alcohol can cause complication with pregnancy. You can try mixing up ginger and lime sparkler as they taste amazing and also look almost like champagne. This drink will also help with pregnancy nausea as well.
3. Stay Hydrated
Christmas season can be tiring with all the preparations happening for which you get out of your daily routines and it is easy for you to forget your bottle of water. It’s very important to keep yourself hydrated when you’re pregnant.
4. Take a walk
When you are pregnant you won’t be able to do much exercise but don’t forget that Walking is considered to be very healthy for pregnant women. Brisk walking is a great cardio exercise for pregnant women.
5. Stretch a little
There are specific yoga poses specially developed for pregnant women. So make sure to find time to stretch out and try these special yoga poses. Ten minutes of yoga daily is very useful for pregnant women as it can make you feel more relaxed and energised. One simple yoga pose that you can practice is, sitting on the floor with legs crossed with feet beneath your knees, stretch the spine and sit up straight. Relax your shoulders, inhale deeply and slowly exhale.
When you are pregnant everyone will be there to help you do the smallest things, so make the most of being pregnant and accept offers of help from others and feel pampered. This Christmas let other people in your family take care of the shopping and the cooking while you just sit and enjoy the season.
