Pregnancy is a magical moment in a woman’s life, and the miracle of creating and developing a real person is second to none in this world. But there is a very unpleasant aspect of this trip that any pregnant woman can attest to.
From that craving for 3 hours of fried chicken to all the weird things that happen to your body that you never imagined, pregnancy isn’t a walk in the garden! Nor does it help with misconceptions and myths coming to you from everywhere.
But do not worry. Everything will soon end and you will get the perfect small gift at the end. In the meantime, here are a few simple tips to make pregnancy easier:
1. Use a Lot of Pillows
Pillows! They are your best friend during pregnancy. A growing abdomen makes it difficult for you to go to bed, and having lots of pillows can make your life easier.
Some pregnant women choose to buy a long pregnancy pillow that extends from head to head and around it. It also helps you lie on your side and avoid rolling, which is important during the third trimester of pregnancy. What if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a special pillow? You just need to collect all the extra pillows in your house and arrange them according to what makes you comfortable!
2. Eat Healthy and Avoid Greasy Foods
You had imagined that being pregnant meant being able to eat a whole box of pizza on your own and no one would notice if you were gaining weight because you’re already doing it anyway, right? Oh boy, I was wrong!
Cravings for fatty foods are common (and harmless from time to time), but they are also accompanied by unpleasant side effects. For example, I suffered from a real heartburn when I was pregnant. Let me tell you, not fun. Try to stick to fresh foods, whole grains, and lean meats to get the nutrition you need, but also to keep everything going well in your body. It will also prevent you from achieving a lot, which may make your child overweight, not to mention the difficulty of losing it later!
