Being pregnant is an ecstatic feeling, and you can hardly wait to hold your little bundle of joy in your arms. Ideally, you’d want to enjoy and make most of your pregnancy days, but if you have a winter pregnancy, the grey climate and the sharp drop in temperature might end up making you feel dreary.
You might worry about being cooped up in the house, spending all your time sipping some hot beverages and reading magazines. But trust us, it really isn’t that boring.
Here, we are giving you some sunny sides to the grey winter days so that you can enjoy your pregnancy break without a hitch and have a great time as well. In case you are wondering how to turn around the common winter mood dips, read further for some cool ideas.
1. Beating The Cold
If you think that the winter months might end up being inconveniently cold, you might be mistaken. During pregnancy, the natural temperature of your body tends to go up, making you feel warmer, therefore even during peak winter months, you may actually feel comfortable since the chilly weather outside balances against your internal heat.
Plus, it is great to cuddle up inside a cozy blanket than be sweating under a fan. So, thank your stars that you have a winter pregnancy!
2. Hiding Your Pregnancy Flabs
In the summer months, you need to scout through your wardrobe to find clothes that would fit your big size. Moreover, beachwear or summer clothes are lighter and expose so much of your body, that they can make you a bit conscious of your bulges poking from all sides.
But when it’s winter, you need not worry about your wardrobe. Jumpers and sweaters not only keep you warm, but they also take away all your stress regarding summer clothes, fittings, waxing schedules and so on.
Moreover, you will find many of your woolen outfits from pre-pregnancy days fitting you well, owing to their texture and stretchy quality. Nowadays, pregnancy winter clothing comes with so many interesting designs that it is a great idea to try them out without having to bother about showing your extra inches.
3. Locked Indoors
Many women feel that winter months are only about being locked indoors. But being indoors with interesting things to do is a great break from strenuous outdoor schedules. You spend more time inside your home, and you can utilize it to do so many things!
Finishing your long-pending chores, preparing your baby’s nursery, shopping for those things that have been lying on your online cart for so long, tossing up your favorite meal or lounging on the sofa while you utilize your Netflix account are only some of the awesome ways to relax and unwind during your pregnancy.
Plus, you can always visit your friends and relatives or have them come over so that you are never bored!
4. Not Being Able To Do Your Favourite Outdoor Activities
If you love to play a sport or take a dip in the swimming pool, you have to give it a pause. Winter months are in fact a great excuse to give them a miss because you don’t want to get sick and put your foetus through stress.
Instead, do outdoor activities that are beneficial, and which rejuvenate you. E.g. outdoor walks are great for you and your baby in the winter months. You can also call a friend over and indulge in some chatting, or a yoga session, under the supervision of your trainers, of course.
So, you must have realized that being pregnant during the winter months may not be as boring after all! Do follow these tips; make the most of your term and you will be enjoying the lovely spring weather with your baby in no time!
