Nausea

Being nauseous during your pregnancy can have you feeling at your worst with little motivation to simply get out of bed. And if you feel this way I can relate because I had this literally every day with my 4th pregnancy. There are various reasons for feeling this way: it could be hormones; or simply low iron. To combat this, try increasing your iron or even having a light snack. And if that does not work, try clearing your mind with a great workout. Sweat sessions solve everything!

2

Weight Gain

If you seem to tip the scale at every doctor’s appointment and you cannot understand why, watch your sodium intake. Since women usually bloat during pregnancy, it is important to monitor your sodium intake and eat for your health mama!

Weight gain during pregnancy is a normal occurrence, but it is important to monitor your sodium intake to ensure it doesn't become excessive. Eating a balanced diet full of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats is the best way to ensure you are getting the nutrition you need while also keeping your sodium intake in check. Additionally, drinking plenty of water throughout the day can help reduce bloating and keep you hydrated. It is also important to talk to your doctor about any dietary concerns you may have, as they can provide valuable advice and guidance.

3

Heartburn

Combat heartburn by avoiding spicy or fried food during pregnancy. This will save you sleepless nights and slim down your waistline. So avoid giving into cravings during your pregnancy so you can sleep like a baby tonight!

4

Varicose Veins

With the added pressure of weight on the uterus, do not be surprised if you notice bulging veins that appear on your legs. These are varicose veins and they are an unfortunate part of most women’s pregnancy. To decrease the risk of this annoyance, wear compression hose, elevate your legs and make exercise a part of your daily life!

5

Constipation

With the increase of stress on the body, your daily prenatal and higher levels of hormones, pregnancy may have you going to the bathroom less frequently and feeling bloated as a result. Increase your fiber, drink more water and exercise daily to combat this annoyance of pregnancy.

6

Lack of Sleep

Gone are the days of sleeping sound like a baby because with a baby growing inside you are feeling less like yourself and possibly being awoken by the movement of your tenant. Go for a walk, take a warm bath and relax before bed so you can sleep more easily in your pregnancy. You need this sleep because your body is working hard growing new life!

7

Mood Swings

Mood swings are so much part of pregnancy, you may often feel like you have two personalities. Before you lose yourself and drive your partner nuts with your mood changes, get outside for a workout. The fresh air and fitness session will help to reduce your mood swings or possibly even eliminate them. You will be much happier as a result. I was able to eliminate my mood swings by doing just an hour a day of exercise. It was well worth it for my mental well-being and also for the family!

So even through your toughest pregnancy, you can conquer this and there is a ray of sunshine at the end of the tunnel - your growing miracle. Everything occurs for a reason so embrace the beauty of new life and be ready to follow these tips to handle change in the very best way!
