These are great and amazing recommended forms of exercise when you’re expecting. Please do not tire yourself out too much though. You need to get as much rest as much as possible.

#2:

Staying Hydrated –

You should be drinking plenty of water each day to make sure you and the baby are hydrated and happy. If you are sweating or exercising you will need to hydrate more often. Try to eat hydrating fruits and vegetables too such as watermelon and cucumber for that extra burst.

(Please be advised that the more liquids you consume, the more you will be forced to go to the bathroom. As if pregnancy doesn’t already force you to go to the bathroom frequently. Keep calm, it’s completely normal to use the bathroom a lot during pregnancy.)


#3:

Pay Attention to the Food You Eat –

When you think of cravings, almost the first thing anyone thinks is pregnancy. You might have a large amount of ridiculous cravings when you’re pregnant. There is nothing wrong sith satisfying your tastebuds. However you should watch what you eat and be careful not to overindulge on sugary or starchy snacks.

Why?

Because you do not want to end up like me. It would make you gain weight quickly. Before pregnancy I was 127 and I was 181 right before I gave birth. Yup! I gained 54lbs!

Therefore, it is essential to remember that whatever you eat, the baby will eat as well.

Cooking or having your spouse make meals, and making sure that you guys eat out less would really assist with watching what you eat.


#4:

Resting Easier –

Getting enough sleep each night is very important for a blossoming pregnant woman, so you try to go to bed early and adjust your typical routine. However, you might find it difficult to get to sleep some nights due to your little one moving around like they are doing the Cha-Cha Slide. Therefore, you will be experiencing a bit of aches and pains, but you will soon drift off to sleep afterwards.

Some simple methods you try to make yourself go to sleep:

  • Drinking warm chamomile tea

Or

  • Reading a book 

#5:

Natural Skincare –

A lot of pregnant women skin tend to experience breaks out here and there. If you break out in zits or you suddenly have dry skin; it just means that your hormones will be trying to balance out and figuring out what to do.

You should begin using skincare products that are as natural as possible.

Why?

So you don’t aggravate your breakouts any further. As long as you are regularly moisturizing and keeping your skin clean then your skin will eventually go back to normal.


#6:

Meditation Relaxation –
