Invest in comfortable clothing
When you are comfortable, you’ll feel confident, and your whole outlook on the journey to bringing your bundle of joy to this world will change positively. Buy maternity dresses that flatter your growing belly and make you look fabulous.
Make sure you’re up and about. Go on walks and engage in recreational activities that are not strenuous but keep you active. Exercising will lift your spirits as well as better your attitude.
Sleep as much as you can. This doesn’t mean that you lazy around but rather that you make certain you are not tired. Get a good night’s sleep at night and during the day, have sessions of rest. Avoid stressful situations that may bring a damper on your moods.
Strike a balance between feeding your cravings and eating healthy foods. Increase your intake of water and fluids throughout the day to make sure that you are hydrated.
