In pregnancy, every day unveils something different, it could be fun or stressful or so it seems and chances are you already feel uncomfortable sleeping, you don’t want to add work stress to it.
1. Take short but frequent breaks
As the D-Day draws closer, you need to rest and slow things down. No more running up the staircase at work or going all day without food. Different things work for different people so you need to know what works for you. Take short but frequent breaks in-between work to recharge.
2. Sit close to the bathroom
You probably need to use the bathroom every 5 minutes, so why not just take a seat?
3. Eat small but frequent meals
The trick is to eat small quantity of food frequently so you don’t throw it all up. Also, remember to keep your water close. It’s very important to stay hydrated during pregnancy but not having water close by can discourage you from getting up to get a drink. Always have a water bottle handy as you can enjoy slow tips every other minute.
4. Ask for help
Don’t fall into labour with stress. If you need help, please ask.
5. Dress right
Strive to be comfortable at all times. Free dresses, leggings and maternity pants are going to be your best friends for now.
