On the eve of baby’s on the due date, I am unable to sleep. With baby moving in my womb, which occur spontaneously Braxton Hicks contractions and make you helpless, like a beetle on its back waving its legs, and the enormous pressure in pelvis that whisks you away to the house bathroom only to expel an unimpressive thimble full of pee every 15 minutes? Reflect on the following advice of parents and pregnancy resources. Pregnancy Tip:
- Learn to love your belly: Strangers on the street said, Wow you are great! Every day has to be now when you were a mere four months of pregnancy. After months of experiencing a plague of panic every time you caught a glimpse of my reflection, you finally came to love your belly in a pregnancy photo shoot.
- Borrow maternity clothes: No matter how ugly and some of the huge maternity pieces seem, accept them all. You really do not know how you can get big and comfortable as the hideous panels might be later. Put aside your pre-pregnancy clothes once you grow out of them so why not constantly grieving the loss of old wardrobe.
- Let go of your due date: Did you know that only 4% of babies are born on their actual due date who knew! After I found out that it is perfectly normal for a baby to arrive any time between 37 and 42 weeks pregnant, be prepared? (At any time during the five weeks that the window).
- Learn to enjoy your deferential public: Yes, strangers will occasionally see your belly as public property and dish out a host of comments and advice.
- Find a health professional that you love: The ups and downs of your pregnancy require special support and pregnancy resources. Find someone who welcomes your questions puts your fears to rest and relies on having the best pregnancy and delivery is possible.
- Listen and learn to trust your body, and relinquishing cravings (turkey sandwiches with cranberry sauce and chocolate ice cream), the need for extra sleep.
- Also, reading parenting books for the humor and practicality, the fabulous hardcore midwifery books like Ina May's Guide to Pregnancy helped you learn to trust your body more than ever. These books helped to dissolve many of your fears, as I learned things like no matter how big your baby, babies heads are mostly around the same size, and are designed for nature to make the journey through the birth canal.
- Find other pregnant women and hang out with them: Pre-natal is a real exercise class pregnancy resource blessing. Not only you getting fit, but you found a sense of belonging, where you could really let belly out with the best of them. When you began to regret (like nausea, especially in a day) and find another pregnant woman who was going through a tougher situation (like kidney stones or painful hemorrhoids!) Or Trouper in a real class would say something, which led to spirit. Plus, by finding other pregnant woman saved non-pregnant friends the hassle of listening to you all the shares play-by-play experience of pregnancy, probably saved some of your friends.
- Spend money only on things that the baby will make a real difference for you and buy or borrow the remaining second-hand: Babies do not? Do not worry about the paint chips and Color, just about being near the source of milk? You! The fact that they are going to grow quickly out of any and all clothes helped put my priorities in order. Then we splurged on things that mattered to me: the stroller (as I am a great walker), a safe car seat (for obvious reasons) and a rocker / glider (once I realized that could be powering up twelve hours a day during the first six weeks).
- Feel Morning sickness, can happen at any time: Morning sickness can happen at any time of day, every day or even nonexistent. Fortunately not often, it can even creep into the second or third quarter as it did to me.
- Everyone's pregnancy experience is different, so take what is useful and ignore the rest: With so many experiences and so many people dishing out advice. What do I have observed is that pregnancy in most cases is the great equalizer? If you do something on one end you'll likely find something on the other. Fortunately, whatever our pregnancy experience may be, most of us end up with a little bundle of joy that makes the trip worth all the effort. I'm off to bed now to join my husband and my five pillows to sleep refresh my bountiful belly, my breasts happy and weary head. How am I going to sleep outside, I'll gratefully in my heart, knowing that soon we will have the new welcoming a beautiful addition to our little family. This is truly the greatest miracle of all parenting.
