If you are pregnant, you can get away with a lot of things. So make sure to take advantage of the occasion! These 10 easy tips will definitely help you to survive this festive season!
- Do not over schedule
Christmas is the busiest time of the year. You will have to attend parties and other gatherings with family, friends, & colleagues. You must pick the events carefully that you wish to attend. Try to have one night free every weekend in December so that you can rest.
- Cancel trips if you have to
You can back out from a plan if your social calendar is full. Being pregnant is the perfect excuse that you can use. So don’t hesitate from playing that card if you need some rest.
- Stay in with your loved ones
Instead of going out or inviting friends, this year you can get into a new pair of pyjamas and snuggle up in front of the television on Christmas Eve too.
- Make the occasion special
Make Christmas special before the new baby comes into your life. If this is your first baby, then you can organize special couple events like romanticdates and dinners.
- Minimize travel time
During pregnancy, avoid spending a lot of time in the car so that you can enjoy the true essence of Christmas. Travelling can be really tiring, so try to minimize it.
- Convenience is important
Embrace convenience whenever possible. Just focus on the things that you really want to do. It will ensure proper health for you and your baby along with an enjoyable time.
- Go for the Fancy Drinks
You might not consume alcohol during pregnancy, but you can enjoy other fancy drinks. You can relax with some fancy mocktails or fruit juices, so ensure they are stocked in your fridge.
- Avoid Drunken individuals
People who are drunk can be extremely fun and entertaining because of their great dance moves or amazing conversation skills. But you can enjoy their company when you are one of them.
During Christmas, people tend to over drink. If you are pregnant, these people can be the worst company. So makes sure to avoid such guests or friends as they might be extremely annoying.
- Eat your favourite dishes
You can enjoy Christmas by eating whatever you feel like. Just make sure to avoid things that might cause allergic reactions.
- Enjoy the extra attention
The people who are aware of the good news will go to extra lengths to ensure you are at complete ease. They will make sure to offer you a seat and get you a drink. Enjoy the special attention and don’t restrict yourself much.
