Pregnancy is an amazing time in a woman's life, but it can also be an uncomfortable experience. From morning sickness and food aversions to back pain and difficulty sleeping, pregnancy can take it's toll on a woman. Luckily, there are a lot of fun things that you can enjoy during pregnancy to take your mind off any of the difficult parts. If you are expecting your first child, make sure you do the following things while pregnant:
Indulge in a Pre-Natal Massage
Most women appreciate a good massage at any time, but they can feel especially great when you're heavily pregnant and have an aching back. Be selective of the spa you go to or the massage therapist that you hire for your massage--it is a good idea to ensure that the person giving you a massage has advanced training in massage for pregnant women and also has the proper table to help support a pregnant woman's body during the massage.
Go on a Babymoon
A babymoon is an increasingly popular trend for couples--it is basically a fun vacation during pregnancy for the parent-to-be to enjoy before their bundle of joy arrives. You can take a babymoon at any point in your pregnancy, but many women like to schedule their trip during the second trimester when morning sickness is behind them and they have a little more energy.
Keep a Journal
You may think that you will remember ever single detail of your first pregnancy for the rest of your life, but memories can fade and your life will become a lot busier after your sweet baby arrives. If you want to cherish your pregnancy experience, consider keeping a journal. Writing in a journal can be very relaxing, and you will end up with a great keepsake that you can share with your child one day.
Have Maternity Photographs Taken
The pregnant body is gorgeous, and many moms-to-be have a great glow--what better way to capture that than through photographs? There are now many photographers that specialize in maternity photography, so find one in your area and book a session. A lot of woman choose to have maternity photos taken in the third trimester when they have a beautiful baby bump. Some photographers also offer packages that include a maternity session for you and a newborn session when your baby arrives, which captures the precious memories of a wonderful time in your life.
