Is carrying your shopping bags more and more difficult? A weekly meal plan can help. If you know what to cook you know what to shop! Make a shopping trip an event; get you best friend, your partner or a family member to accompany you. They can help you carry; you have company and after wards you can treat them with something they like (ice crème, a lunch, candy etc.). Another solution could be a supermarket that delivers. There are several chains who deliver if you shop for a certain amount or above. Fresh fruit, vegetable, meat or fish you can put in a shopping cart liner. Once you get home you can put it on a chair before you unpack so you don’t have to bend over.
Breathing – Peace let you breathe.
In the last weeks of pregnancy there is not much space in your body to take a deep breath. Your baby pushes against your ribs and your midriff. It is time that you start to eat smaller portions more often instead of a few big meals. And if you have physical stress like thorough house cleaning you plan it in advance and do it slow. This way you can avoid breathlessness and fatigue.
Sleeping better with a soft support.
A little trick with a big effect! If the time has come that you cannot lie on your back or on your side than you should get a body pillow. There are two types. One is just a straight long pillow relatively inexpensive which you can put between your ankle and knee. It takes the pressure off your back. The other one is a paternal pillow price range from $ 50 up to $100 and it comes in different forms. If in the evening your legs are swollen you can raise the lower part of your bed during the night by putting some blankets there to raise your feet. This way the accumulated liquid in your legs can drain off. In the morning you wake up and your eyes are swollen? It is a normal attribute of being pregnant. A great relive is if at night you boil some chamomile tea bags, have them in the refrigerator and in the morning before you get up, take your 10 minute beauty rest by putting them on your eyelids.
