As your pregnancy continues, you may find that day-to-day activities are getting increasingly uncomfortable and tiring. Remember to take some time out to relax and look after yourself. Here are some suggestions to keep in mind!

I'm just a bump, i want me back!

I just want someone to pay attention to me!

When you get pregnant, it's normal for everyone and everything to focus on your bloated tummy. You may enjoy the attention at first, however in later stages of pregnancy, you may find yourself feeling a bit invisible and longing to be appreciated as an individual.

Take care of yourself

If you do feel a bit overlooked, mention it to your husband and closest friends and family, to help them understand how you're feeling. Then try and take some time out to treat yourself to things that make you feel good, for instance:

  • Exercising gently releases feel-good chemicals in your body and will actually help you feel good and sleep better at night too (as long as you stop a good four hours before bedtime). Regular exercise can also build up your stamina, helping you get through labour.
  • There's nothing like a self-indulgent pampering session! Whether it's going for a manicure, pedicure, a new haircut, or a gentle yet relaxing massage with pregnancy-safe oils such as lavender, just take some time out and treat yourself.

Learn to love your pregnancy

Try to remember the positive side of your bloated tummy. It's not every day that men offer you their seat, women smile admiringly and you get to put your feet up and eat without worry of putting extra weight. Remember how excited and happy you were earlier on in the pregnancy. And think about how amazing it'll be to hold your baby in your arms for the first time.
