Your Pregnancy - - Contents -

You are so for­tu­nate to be preg­nant in April and May, be­cause preg­nancy is a very snug­gly time of life, and win­ter is the snug­gle sea­son, af­ter all. Em­brace it by spend­ing more time on the couch, go­ing to bed ear­lier, ly­ing in on week­ends and spoil­ing your­self with some soft new clothes and long, in­dul­gent warm (not hot) baths. I also in­sist that you in­sist on be­ing served tea at the TV or while you read this is­sue of Your Preg­nancy. And how about a lovely sand­wich with that? Be sure to show your part­ner the recipes on page 88. Lack of kitchen skills is no ex­cuse – any­one can make a sand­wich! Be­ing a bit of a her­mit while you grow your baby is per­fectly fine. Some quiet time now will stand you in good stead for be­com­ing a busy mom with a de­mand­ing new­born soon. Fo­cus on be­ing rested and re­laxed so that you can use every ounce of your en­ergy to­wards the birth. The only down­side to win­ter is of course the greater like­li­hood of get­ting a cold or the flu. But, as al­ways, we have your back with some great ad­vice for how to deal with these nas­ties in a way that won’t put your baby at risk, on page 60 and 62. Stay warm and stay healthy and let us know how your win­ter preg­nancy is go­ing... Greet­ings,
