In this November our family gets a beautiful gift from God. My sister, who married last year, got two lines on her testpack. After waiting so long, she finally became pregnant. A feeling of happiness meets our family. At the beginning of her pregnancy, my sister experienced a very great experience. He felt her world had changed 180 degrees. She complains every day. I remember the days when I went through my pregnancy. I present this article to my dear sister.
Being pregnant is an extraordinary feeling. Especially if this is the first. Every pregnancy is its own story. Each is different and more special than the others. Maybe no one tells you that sleep will become more difficult every day. The frequent need to go to the bathroom, not find a suitable sleeping position, experience insomnia and more difficulties faced by mothers in the future. Many prospective mothers complain of back pain. In the first trimester, you will be able to sleep with your stomach. Later it is not possible because the stomach is enlarged. Forget about sleeping on your back too. Your weight suppresses your spine, causes back pain and other problems. After the 16th week, doctors recommend sleeping on the side, especially on your left side. This will increase blood flow to the heart, uterus, and kidneys, allowing the baby to grow. Finding a suitable sleeping position is no less important than finding the right mattress. Place a pillow under your stomach or between knees to reduce pressure. If you experience heartburn – pillow under your head. If you face shortness of breath – place a pillow under your chest.
Exercise and proper nutrition during pregnancy are important for both mothers and unborn babies. Walking, swimming, yoga and pilates will help you sleep better. Do what makes you happy. This has a positive impact on your mind and mood too. Avoid spicy and oily foods; eat more vegetables and fruits. Replace caffeine with plenty of water.
To have a good pregnancy we not only have to look at physical health. Being healthy is fundamental at this time, but also mentally calm, ready and happy.
If we give time to care for our bodies, we also have to save time for relaxation and care for our minds. Not only is the body more vulnerable during pregnancy. Finding calm and doing relaxation exercises at home will help us feel better.
Attending labor classes can be very beneficial both for our physical and mental health. Relating to other pregnant women and sharing experiences open our minds to find that we are not the only ones who have doubts or fears.
