Pregnancy is a wonderful phase of life when you feel different types of emotions that are hard to explain. Sometimes you feel extremely depleted and sometimes you feel overly joyful. During pregnancy, mood changes every day along with the body, and these changes might affect you. Don’t worry, to make your pregnancy more comfortable and relaxing there are some great tips and gadgets.
So, here are nine tips or suggestions for mothers to be, that can be helpful and comforting.
1. Use inflatable rings to support your belly
Sometimes, you want to sleep on your belly but can’t do so, because it won’t be the right posture for you.
But using an inflatable ring can be useful. Just put it on your bed and lay down on your belly.
2. Use aloe vera to dodge stretch marks.
The appearance of stretch marks is common during pregnancy, but if you want to minimize them, you can try aloe vera extract or gel on your belly. Gently apply it and massage it for a few minutes and let it dry for around 20 to 40 minutes. Rinse with water.
3. Reuse your old clothes during pregnancy
There’s no requirement of buying new clothes every month because they will become small as your belly is continuing to grow. In spite of buying new shirts or tops, cut the middle of the top or shirt and stitch it with another top or shirt and your new cloth is ready.
4. Do this to minimize nausea.
There’s a technique to minimize nausea. In your inner side of the wrist. First, you need to find that spot by placing three fingers of your other hand around your wrist. Then place the thumb below your three fingers. Now, begin pressing slowly with your thumb until you feel two big tendons. Continue to put gentle pressure there and the same for the other hand.
