Among the books and magazines today, I stumbled upon a five-year-old diary that burst into vivid emotions in my memory. This is a diary of my pregnancy, in which I wrote down all my feelings of joy and anxiety, all small problems and their solutions. Scrolling through it, I decided to share with you tips on how I was able to ease my pregnancy months. It is possible that they will help some of you.
It seems that everything was just yesterday: tum, life originated in the heart and toxicosis. Morning nausea did not bother me, but in the afternoon I was sick of the thought of sweet. The only and proven salvation was lemon and mineral water without gas.
A good remedy during toxicosis was tea with lemon without sugar. Since the time of pregnancy, I very rarely drink tea with sugar – it is unsweetened, it tastes better, and the calories are less.
Among the most terrible suffering of pregnancy, I very clearly recall moments of heartburn attacks. She tortured me quite often, if not daily. I had to constantly carry a pack of seeds in my purse. They helped me a lot in the struggle for an unmamised pregnancy.
When the seeds did not cope, they had to give up fried food and sleep on two pillows, which did not allow the gastric juice to rise up.
It all started with the fact that I went to work a lot and thought it was good. Otherwise he considered my body: at the end of the day my legs began to gain volume, to hurt and pulsate. Nothing coped with these manifestations of the body’s reaction to pregnancy.
To make the swelling less disturbing, I reduced the load on my legs (I walked less), reduced salt intake, ate a lot of vegetables (good, the vegetable season came along with the edema), chose mineral water with a small amount of sodium.
In the evening, lying in front of the TV or with a book in my hands, I put a roller under my feet so that my legs were in a raised position. In special cases, it was necessary to apply a scalded cabbage leaf to swollen places so that the liquid would dissolve faster.
I was terribly afraid of stretch marks, so from the second month of pregnancy, I began to smear the belly, chest, waist and hips with stretch marks cream (I do not remember what oriflaim stretch cream was called in the bluish tube). In addition to the special cream, I used moisturizers for the body, and even for the face on the problem areas.
Daily body care creams and rubbing in the form of massage have done their job – I do not have stretch marks, except for those few spider webs that absolutely do not constrain me to my husband or the beach.
Where do without it? The last half of the pregnancy was in the hot summer and autumn days, so you had to sweat for two. I did not use antiperspirants because my body does not perceive this filth, which clogs the pores, so it was necessary to keep the maximum purity of the body. Always on hand were wet wipes soaked in alcohol anti-bacterial liquids.
It was extremely difficult to find high-quality natural clothes for a pregnant woman, but natural clothes helped breathe to a large body. Had to look to enjoy the wonderful months of waiting.
In the last months of pregnancy, back pain accompanied me constantly. I refused high heels immediately after the appearance of the tummy, wore a bandage, did gymnastics, but the pain did not go away, and sitting work was to blame for everything.
Thanks to my husband for doing the massages that helped me the best.
Pregnancy is hard work, which is easy for some, harder for others. It would seem that I had many manifestations of pregnancy, but thanks to my observation of my body, I coped with all these sad manifestations. Now only my diary of five years ago remembers them, and I remember only the best – the joy of having a son, his small achievements in the knowledge of a big world.
How did you cope with these manifestations of pregnancy? Your advice will help other girls to be much happier during the months of pregnancy!
