It is important to wrap up warm and minimize your exposure to extreme cold (especially in weather conditions, such as snow and ice) if you are pregnant during the winter. Have an adult ' snow day ' and stay indoors to avoid dangerous conditions.
The most important thing in the winter season is
to be comfortable and warm. It's a good idea to
buy a new jacket to wear as it helps keep your
body dry. Instead of hitting the thrift store to
purchase a maternity coat to wear for just a few
months, purchasing a winter jacket and keeping
the body comfortable and warm by zipping it
properly is a better choice.
Winter makes one stop or subconsciously neglect
drinking water with its chilly weather, which is
not ideal for pregnant moms. Because the winter
air is dry the winter body needs extra water.
When you try to replace water with beverages, it
won't be conducive. Although a very good option
is coconut water and juices, water is the best way
to keep the body hydrated.
As the winter gets serious, pregnant women need
to wear clothing layers so that they can be added
or removed when needed. It's always been a
disconcerting problem as to what to wear in
winter during pregnancy. There are several ways
to get through the weather changes, such as
wearing a tank top or t-shirt, a cardigan, a
buttoned sweater, or a lightweight scarf.
Your body becomes more sensitive and more
vulnerable to disease when you are pregnant. If
your body is exposed to extreme weather
conditions and the germs can impact the mother
and the baby, it can be very dangerous. Due to
extreme weather conditions, some ladies suffer
from common cold and cough. After leaving the
cozy home, the sensitive body takes time to adjust
to the changed atmosphere of chilly winds
outside. All outings are to be postponed until the
weather gets better.
The skin is dry during pregnancy coupled with the harsh
winter breeze that steals the substance of moisture,
leaving it dry and lifeless Dry skin is flaky and itchy, and
while you're pregnant, the skin needs special care
during the winter. Use lukewarm bathing water. You
have to moisturize the skin immediately after taking a
bath as it pulls in the moisturizer leaving the skin dry,
smooth and supple. Apply a generous amount of
moisturizer to the elbows, feet, and belly, and even the
chest For the pamper shown during pregnancy the body
may feel grateful.
Most women who are pregnant are apprehensive and
fear that if they take any counter medicine, it may affect
the baby. The apprehension is reasonable and
understandable, but if you have been suffering from cold
and flu for more than three consecutive days, you must
visit a doctor and receive treatment for the disease. The
precautionary measures for it should also be discussed.
The best way to avoid germs is to wash your hands
regularly, particularly during pregnancy. It is quite safe
to wash hands after running errands before coming into
contact with any near or dear one. Use a hand sanitizer
if there is no sink nearby. You should wash your hands
properly after every bathroom break and before eating
something, considering the baby's safety in the womb.
It's not easy to go for a walk when it's extreme cold, as
the ice cold and dry air makes the lungs feel like they're
packed with icicles. It's even more complicated for
pregnant women. To keep yourself fit and safe, some
indoor exercises can be a good substitute. You can go to
a nearby indoor swimming pool, join a gym, go to a
local shopping mall and buy a yoga mat or yoga DVD to
stay active and fit during your pregnancy.
