“Aren’t you pregnant?” – Many gravid women have been asked by this question when they do things folks think expectant women should be afraid of doing. Several ladies think their everyday norms would be greatly changed when they conceive; which is one of the sundry reasons why some are afraid of getting pregnant.
This paradox must be uprooted in our minds. Ethically trues as it can be, things go somehow different for a pregnant woman since her daily activities are already engaged with her little darling on her tummy. But there are still numerous wonderful things a pregnant woman can do for a healthy pre-natal care.
Getting Physical with Madonna
Exercising is no doubt beneficial for everyone. It enhances our system and makes us more physically healthier. Physical activities are even more vital during pregnancy for women as it cast out prenatal profits.
In the annual meeting of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) in San Diego, researcher Melissa Hauge, MD, a clinical assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Kansas School of Medicine, says “pregnant women are still afraid exercise is going to hurt their child.” This founding has been presented by Hauge after conducting a survey in 90 women. She found out most of the regular exercisers thought exercising – and even walking – can be hazardous.
This ice was broken by ACOG when they issued an opinion of exercise during pregnancy. Unless OK-ed by their personal doctors, a pregnant woman can take physical fitness programs moderately for 30 minutes, says ACOG. However, of course, activities that may compromise the child such as actions with high risk of falling, interaction sports, and scuba diving should never be done.
Run The World
A working pregnant woman – so what? Yes, you can be a working mom – a money making woman with kicking little one on the tummy. Talk to your personal consultant to give you wise counsel whether working is practical or not. It mostly depends on the type and longevity of the work. However, working in front of your computer isn’t thought to be hazardous for your child.
Fear No Your Privilege
Pregnant women have the powerful privilege no one can ever argue with. This power, if not well manage, can be used abusively or coherently.
“I need to rest up.” – Five words that can easily manipulate things and no one can ever argue with that, even Superman. This privilege can help you escape in-law visits, boring work hours, or you can just say it when you feel like napping. Never fear excusing yourself, you know you’ll always win.
Continue The Love Saga
Many believe that love-making during pregnancy can cause miscarriage and other harm for the child. Does it? Miscarriage usually occurs when fetus isn’t developing normally. Additionally, a developing baby is well protected by the amniotic fluid in your uterus and strong muscles around it, thus sexual activity is generally not an issue.
Frankly to say, some are not really afraid of having intercourse during pregnancy but they are rather influenced by their unstable emotions due to hormonal fluctuations, fatigue, nausea, and breast tenderness that lowers the sexual craving. This is usually normal.
Intercourse is a normal process in relationships. You hypocrite, never say you’ll never yearn for it. It does not only give pleasure but also a lot of prenatal benefits: it strengthens the muscles in the pelvic floor which will give you an easier labor, it reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, it prepares you for labor, improves self-esteem, and makes connections stronger.
You see, being pregnant is not so bad. There are things you shouldn’t fear doing and more things you’ll get to enjoy with no hesitations. So the next time someone questions you for doing amazing things – so what?
