Some of the most basic things like getting out of bed can be a little comical when you’re pregnant. It took me a couple times the other day just to fling my legs over my pregnancy pillow and slide my way out of bed, my husband always has a little chuckle when he sees me try and do this. So I thought I would provide a visual interpretation for you 🙂 Thank you for reading! Till next time!
I remember when I used to go to the gym …which happened to be a brief moment in my life, but when I did I used to see these pregnant people lifting weights and walking fast on the treadmill and I used to think to myself, “that’s going to be me!” Now that I am pregnant I have NO IDEA how those women did it???? I get exhausted just going out to get the mail. And my husband is even more confused because he sees these woman at the gym ready to pop and they are energizer bunnies. I just don’t get it?
So I decided to try and find out ways to gain more energy while pregnant….and it turns out there some tricks you can do:
Tip #1 Sleep….try to go bed just a little earlier even just an afternoon nap works wonders!
Tip #2 Water…drink lots and lots of water, being dehydrated makes you tired along with giving you a headache. Not to mention it’s not good for the baby
Tip #3 Change your diet, you may not be eating that healthy and that can cause fatigue, make sure you are getting your fruits and veggies
Tip #4 Exercise, now this one is a tough for me, but even just a little walk is suppose to help with circulation and energy
Tip #5 Vitamins, make sure you are taking your prenatal vitamins and that you are getting tested at the doctor. You might have low iron or anemia
Well hope these tips helped! If you have any tips that worked for you I would love to hear them!
