STAY ON TOP OF FA­TIGUE

Your Pregnancy - - Pregnancy Files -

Ac­cept the fact that you need ex­tra rest and pace your daily ac­tiv­i­ties. Add an af­ter­noon nap to your sched­ule; cat­naps of 15 to 20 min­utes can be re­ju­ve­nat­ing. Avoid tak­ing on ex­tra re­spon­si­bil­i­ties dur­ing this time in your life. In­vest in a rock­ing chair and en­joy the com­fort­ing mo­tion of mov­ing for­ward and back­ward. Your baby will also ben­e­fit. Keep a good sup­ply of nu­tri­tious snacks on hand. Fruits and juices, cru­dités, cheese, milk and yo­ghurt, peanuts and raisins, cold chicken, and high fi­bre muffins. Savour this won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence as your body’s wis­dom leads you through the mir­a­cle of cre­ation. Have a cup of Rooi­bos or chamomile tea be­fore bed­time. A few drops of laven­der oil on a tis­sue near your pil­low will also calm and soothe your nerves.
