Does it seem like after a few bites, you start to lose your appetite and feel like taking a nap more and more frequently? Or does the simplest of chores makes you feel beat that you feel like asking dear sweet hubby for a relaxing back massage? These are the typical early signs of pregnancy. Most women get irritated by the inconsistent feeling of morning sickness and fatigue which can vary from women to women. There are several factors that can cause all these but you can seek the help of your partner to have a healthy, happy pregnancy.
- Your body will know what it wants and instinct will tell you what will make you feel good so listen to it.
- When craving for a particular food, get it or better still, have your partner get it for you, involve him. Make sure to eat slowly despite the hunger you feel so you can easily digest the food. It is better to eat small, balanced, frequent meals instead of three hefty meals in a day. As much as possible, opt for organic or pesticide-free food.
- It is normal to easily feel nauseous and that passes in time. Make sure you stay hydrated by drinking water. Some find sipping on small pieces of ice helpful in combating the feeling of nausea.
- Maintain a well-ventilated house and shy away from deodorants especially if it bothers you.
- A pregnant woman has to have plenty of rest to recover from all the factors that stress her during pregnancy. Make sure you have a good mattress that provides the support you need for your back.
Above all else, your regular interaction with your doctor will spell a whole lot of difference in achieving a healthy, happy pregnancy. Top that with loving support given by your partner; all the more will it become stress-free. It is ideal to have your partner’s involvement from step one, when the baby was created, all the way to hearing the baby’s first cry. That includes him being with you during doctor visits. An understanding partner will be more than willing. After all, having a baby is a priceless treasure and you will realize this the moment you look into the infant’s eyes the very first time.
