Third Trimester - 4 Tips for Moms
Third trimester tips are tips that are supposed to make this time easier for you. Remember about it, because soon everything is going to be around someone else! For now, make yourself some favors! Stay comfortable, take care of yourself and let others do things for you; it is not a shame. Here is a short list of what you should remember about during the last weeks of pregnancy.
1 Eat well and drink a lot of water
You probably eat healthy already although you may consider changing your daily meal plan a little bit. Having more small meals throughout the day helps with reducing heartburn and gas pains. Drinking plenty of water prevents swelling. Try keeping water bottles around the house, to make sure you remember about hydration.
2 Exercise at least a little bit
There are two arguments to exercise while pregnant: it may soothe pregnancy aches and pains, but also you will be better prepared for carrying a child. Few months with a belly may seem like an exercise itself, but while for taking care of the newborn, you will need much more muscles!
