MY TIPS FOR A HAPPY PREG­NANCY

Closer (UK) - - Interview -

STAY AC­TIVE

“I’ve con­tin­ued ex­er­cis­ing through­out my preg­nancy, power walk­ing on the tread­mill at home and do­ing floor ex­er­cises and bits with re­sis­tance bands. I re­ally en­joy ex­er­cise – it’s my re­lease.”

FIND HEALTHY MEALS YOU LOVE

“I have sweet treats, but I also en­sure I’m get­ting all the nu­tri­ents to keep the baby and me healthy. For break­fast I might have por­ridge with seeds and a driz­zle of honey or boiled egg and sol­diers. For lunch, it’s fish and salad, or a veg­gie cous­cous, and for din­ner I’ll have some­thing like but­ter­nut squash and spinach curry, or sweet chilli salmon with broc­coli, rice, baby corn and av­o­cado.”

LIS­TEN TO YOUR BODY

“I’m hav­ing so many sweet cravings with this preg­nancy. It’s im­por­tant to lis­ten to your body and do what feels right for you, so I’ll have some choco­late if I want it.”

DRESS CON­FI­DENTLY

“I strug­gled with fash­ion dur­ing my last preg­nancy and hid my bump in baggy track­suits! This time I wanted to feel glam­orous and not frumpy.”
