I Just Found Out I'm Pregnant. Now What? Part 4

This is Part 4 in this series, written by our Client Services Director, LaWanda Williams. If you missed Parts 1, 2, or 3 be sure to check them out. This post is all about how to have fun during your pregnancy!


Bond with Your Baby

Make time to bond with your baby during your pregnancy by playing soft music, singing, reading books out loud, and talking to your baby. Start a daily ritual by setting aside two five- to ten-minute periods a day to think about your baby. Just after waking up and before going to sleep works well for many expectant moms. During these times, sit quietly and gently rest your hands on your belly. Focus on your breathing and then start thinking about your baby (your hopes and dreams, your intentions as a parent, and so on). It's a great way to initiate the bonding process and to help you plan for the kind of parent you want to be.


Buy New Bras and Undies

If your breasts are sore, get a good supportive cotton bra. Maternity bras can offer extra support, so try a couple on to see whether you like them. Your breasts might go up one or two more sizes, especially if this is your first pregnancy, and a knowledgeable sales associate can help you with sizing. Also, as your abdomen expands, maternity briefs, bikinis, and even thongs can make a bigger difference in your comfort than you may realize.


Have Sex If You Feel Like It (If You Are Married)

If you're feeling amorous (and you don't have any complications that may make sex dangerous), go ahead – you won't hurt the baby.


Take Belly Photos It's a great way to document your growing bump and create a pregnancy picture album.


Do Something Nice for Yourself If you're feeling up to it, go to a movie, have dinner out, get a pedicure, or do something else you enjoy. You deserve it – pregnancy is hard work!


Write Down Your Pregnancy Memories Whether you keep a formal journal or just jot down a few notes when the spirit moves you, you'll love sharing these pregnancy stories with your child someday.


Check in with a friend Pregnancy is an emotional roller coaster. Ease your mind by sharing your fears, hopes, and excitement with a friend or a fellow mom-to-be.


Taking care of yourself during your pregnancy will give your baby the best possible start. You will feel better and enjoy a healthier pregnancy and quicker recovery time.


Enjoy the journey!
