- When Should I Wear Maternity Clothes?
Early in pregnancy, women are capable of wearing their usual attire. Pants, tops and skirts fit about the same in the beginning, but there comes a time when all of that changes. As the pregnancy bump begins to protrude, the waist bands of jeans, the slack in shirts and the elastic in all types of clothing become a concern.
Because every pregnancy differs, it is wise for the mommy-to-be to decide when she needs---if at all--to begin wearing maternity clothing.
By the second trimester, around the fourth month of gestation, a woman begins to "show" or is noticeably with child to the outside world, making that time ideal for maternity clothes.
Room to Grow
As the uterus enlarges to accommodate the growing fetus, a woman's abdominal area expands outward and requires clothing with a bit more "give" to adequately cover the entire area.
Non-binding and stretchy clothing provides some comfort to a pregnant woman undergoing weight gain averaging between 20 to 30 pounds, 14 of which generally settle around the belly.
Belly sleeves, bands that cover the tops of pants, jeans and skirts, hide the unfastened portion of pre-pregnancy clothing so a pregnant woman can continue wearing them if they fit below the waistline.
The discomfort felt by tight or restrictive clothing is the mother's burden to bear as the growing baby will continue to expand the uterus' size despite what's occurring on the outside; discomfort can be avoided with maternity clothes.
- How To Look Beautiful During Pregnancy?
Most pregnant women carry a practiced patient smile to thank anyone who compliments their looks, hair or complexion. When you are bloated and feel uncomfortable sitting and getting up, it's hard to believe that you can actually look anything but ugly. But that's not true.
The hormone levels and increased blood flow in the body actually makes the hair shiny and less susceptible to falling. Similarly, the complexion improves and there is a 'glow' around the woman, specifically in the second trimester. The stretching bump cannot be avoided, but you can do lots to look beautiful.
Get nice clothes
Your state of mind affects the baby. It is imperative that you enjoy being pregnant and don't look at it as a problem. Shopping for a new pregnant wardrobe will not only create excitement, it will also help with your self-confidence when you walk around with a protruding belly. Maternity clothes range is a booming business and you can pick the latest trends. If you have nice legs, you can pick clothes that draw attention to your legs. Nice arms also could help centre the attention there. It also helps to buy new lingerie that makes you feel sexy. Lastly, stop fretting. Pregnancy is natural and beauty shines through a pregnant belly.
Don't give up makeup completely. It's good to stay away from chemicals, but if make up makes you feel confident, go ahead and do some. It will be good for you. Avoid hair colors and strong perfumes that may irritate you.
Go for your prescribed walks and exercises throughout your pregnancy time. Not only do they make the delivery easy, they also keep your skin cells oxygenated and glowing fresh.
Drink lots of water (at least 8-12 glasses) every day. You and your baby both need water. Water will help your body flush out toxins and make your skin glow. It will also help with acidity that comes along at later stages of pregnancy.
Your hair will be naturally lustrous during pregnancy due to estrogen levels and increased blood circulation. Carry them well in the style most flattering for you. Avoid experimentation as hair goes through turmoil after delivery. Also avoid coloring your hair.
Get proper sleep all the time and more so when you are pregnant. Your body is tired carrying the extra weight around. You must rest it properly. The sleep will also give your skin time to rejuvenate and look good.
Sometimes irregular pigmentation appears on the face during pregnancy. This is hormonal and will go away after delivery. However, wear a good sunscreen when you step out of the house.
Massage your body regularly to reduce stress and avoid stretch marks
Above all, remember that men all over the world adore 'full women' and for a man there is nobody more beautiful than the woman who carries his child.
