Looking Your Best

Believe it or not, you are glowing. You are your most healthy and your most beautiful when you are expecting. All of the hormones are flowing at peak levels and your endorphins are at an optimum. Making certain that you have appropriate gear is key in boosting your confidence level. Wearing a maternity bra and a quality pair of maternity tights during this third trimester will help tremendously.

Both give needed support to overlooked areas of your body. Maternity tights use compression to reduce swelling that is sometimes associated with the end of your pregnancy, while a maternity bra gives extra support to breasts that are preparing for lactation.

Wearing attractive maternity clothes will make you feel good, as well as keeping up with your hair and nails. You may be exhausted at this point, but taking the extra time with your appearance will make you feel better.

Feeling Your Best

Taking your prenatal vitamins, keeping up with physician appointments and getting proper rest will help you feel your best. Sometimes it feels as if the baby will never come, but focusing on the positive aspects of bringing a new life into the world will give you much-needed stamina. Drinking water, staying as active as possible will also help you feel confident and most importantly, healthy.

Reading All You Can About What to Expect

Even if this is not your first time, reading information and books about parenting, delivery, and pregnancy will be a fantastic distraction and past time. You will also learn something new that you can use in raising your family and feeling confident in your parenting habits. Refreshing yourself on the breathing techniques you will utilise during labour will definitely come in handy.

Getting Appropriate Support

Sometimes women want to do it all and feel they do not need support or assistance. However, it is a confidence booster when you seek and garner the appropriate types of support from friends and family. Arrange who will sit for you now before the baby is born. Perhaps you can interview potential caregivers in your free time. There is no doubt that you will need to be better organised once the addition to your family arrives. Learn how to do this from other mothers.

Before you know it, you will be embarking on a brand new and exciting chapter in your life. If you already have children, this is a new little one who will bring exhilarating new things into your midst.

Be confident in who you are as a mother and as a person. No one will do the job you are about to do. Enjoy every moment of this unique time that will not be duplicated before and after the birth of your little one.

  • I remember the insecurity very, very well! In fact, my eldest is 17 and my youngest is 8 and I STILL feel insecure about what pregnancy has done to body! Great tips, these, I needed to read them.

    I can remember feeling insecure about my body because of all the stretch marks but in time I got used to it and have accepted that it was worth it. I think these are very nice tips.

    My second and last pregnancy was so different and horrible. I think I was ready and prepared for one thing and got a whole different experience.

  • These are great tips. Honestly, pregnancy was not my favorite time and I never had that pregnancy glow, lol!

  • Annemarie LeBlanc

    When I was pregnant with my first child, I read a lot. I mean, really, A LOT. I read all about childbirth and parenting, I read books of my favorite authors, even textbooks! What was I to do? I was big, swollen and heavy with child. It did pay off though. My daughter grew up to be a voracious reader too.

  • I agree with you having support during pregnancy is very important. I am actually pregnant with my fifth baby. This go ’round I decided to hire a doula. My husband and I wanted to have the extra support for my natural labor/birth. Also, I just got back from buying myself some cute maternity outfits. I know I have about 10 weeks to go, but I wanted to look my best! 🙂

    Support is so important during a pregnancy. I had very little support during 2 of my 3 pregnancies, and it definitely had an impact on my physical and emotional well-being.

    It is so not easy to feel the best when pregnant. Wearing special clothes might help.

  • Those sound like great tips! Hopefully I’ll be able to make use of them in the nearish future!

  • I agree that taking care with your appearance is such a great confidence booster! Pregnant women really do glow, they are beautiful x

  • Yup, I so agree with this list. I hated when I felt crappy while pregnant–it happened now and again. I had morning sickness so I always was happy when I felt normal again. I know I didn’t always look my best. Towards the end I didn’t care and wore sweatpants and oversized t-shirts.

  • It is so important to feel good during this time. Especially toward the end when it seems everything in your body is either hurting or screaming at you. Great tips.

  • Jhilmil Bhansali

    That’s so important to feel great, we are birthing a baby, a life & that’s the only privilege to us! This feeling will make us great!
