Us bumpy ladies are always struggling to feel a little bit normal when carrying around an extra stone or 2 of baby.
The waddle kicks in, the bigger boobs and tummy make you feel off balance and you're tired and fed up!
But there are small things you can do to help yourself try and feel a little less like giving up on showering altogether and just throwing on some joggers...
1/ Always wear lip gloss and mascara. Even if you don't have time to do your vintage cats eye's eye liner, a quick flick of mascara and your favourite lip gloss will always be an instant pick me up.
2/ Ensure you stay well hydrated and are eating lots of fruit and veggies. The more water you drink, the better your skin will look. And the more fruit and veg you eat the healthier you will feel and you'll know ghat you're getting some goodness in for your little bubba.
3/ try wearing your pre-maternity clothes for as long as possible. It's amazing how long your long line tops, stretchy waistband leggings, trousers and skirts and all your fabulous dresses that cinch you in right under your bust. I am 23 weeks and still fit in a lot of my pre-maternity clothes!
4/ Try and get early nights during the weeks when still working, your body will thank you in the morning and your boss will thank you when you're not flagging by lunchtime! If you want to get stuff done then try spread them out during the weeks and set little goals of things to do.
5/ Every morning and night remember to pamper yourself a little by doing your Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise routine. Also, twice daily, moisturise that precious bump of yours!!!
6/ Finally, remember to not be so hard on yourself by setting goals that are unrealistic. You're pregnant and carrying the most precious cargo ever. If there is something that you can't do, then don't do it. There is so much you still can do within healthy limits.
I hope you get some happy moments and reduced miserable episodes from my handy tips today.
