Congratulations, you’re Expecting!
The next 9 months are going to be so exciting, full of new experiences, changes and first’s,
Especially if this is your first pregnancy.
Pregnancy is such a beautiful time, feeling this little tiny human growing and wriggling inside you, seeing your body changing to accommodate the growing baby inside.
I remember when I was expecting, there was a million and one questions buzzing around my head, there is so much to think about, and to do ready for your new arrival.
As a leading newborn photographer in Preston, Lancashire I get to hear so many recommendations from my clients during their newborn session about the Items they couldn’t possibly live without during their pregnancy.
Our newborn sessions are completely baby lead meaning your baby's safety and comfort comes first - this gives me a lot a time to chat to mums during their newborn photo shoot and love hearing all of their stories and different experiences.
It’s essential to keep hydrated during your pregnancy.
TOP TIP: if you’re suffering from swollen feet & ankles during pregnancy, up your water intake – it may relieve some of your water retention, and reduce the puffyness.
RENNIES (anti-acid remedies)
It’s very common to suffer from heart burn and acid reflux during pregnancy, and yes I had my fair share of it having to sit up at night time. Somehow drinking glass after glass of milk didn’t help me as much as these bad boys, and Gaviscon (no, I'm not on commission)!
COMFY PJ’s / UNDERWEAR
As your body is changing and your baby bump is growing, the need for comfortable ‘Jammies’ and ‘undies’ is necessary along with comfy shoes. I don’t mean you have to live in your PJ’s for the entire duration of your pregnancy, but yes it is more rewarding getting into them when you get in from work and heading straight into a pair of comfy PJ’s to relax, or nod off in straight after your Tea.
Pregnancy can be very tiring. Zzzzzzzz
As your baby tummy start’s to grow, you may have heard a few of the many old wives tales on how to help, prevent or ease stretch marks which may form during your pregnancy.
A lady I once worked with, who had birthed five children, didn’t have a single mark on her body and swore by Olive Oil. She advised me she used it on her tummy as soon as she became pregnant every day. It was claimed it had the similar effect to bio Oil without the price tag.
I did use this during my own pregnancy, was it was a coincidence? Or was it was prevention? –
However it worked for me.
Now this one is very debatable, most ladies will get their own pregnancy craving fix from a range of different options such as Chocolate, Gherkins, Cheese, Ice lollies, to the more unusual Bath sponges, Charcoal and Chalk.
Personally I craved Pork Scratching’s – never liked them ever before until I was expecting!
Do you, or did you have an unusual craving?
Comment below and share with other mums which 5 things you could not live without during your pregnancy - I'd love to hear your stories.....
And once the 9 months are over and you can finally meet your newborn baby -
that moment when time just stands still......... Congratulations!
I will leave you with some adorable newborn baby photos from our client's newborn baby photo shoots from our Newborn Baby Photography Studio based in Preston, Lancashire.
