The time you spend pregnant can be some of the best months of your entire life but they can also be some of the most torturous because of the many physical changes that your body is going through during this time. You will have to put up with many months of nausea and many physical pains which is why it is important for you to look for the best ways for you to be as comfortable as possible during this time. You will have difficulty doing everything from sleeping to carrying things by yourself which will be things that you took for granted all of your life and having to depend on someone else for everything can indeed be frustrating.
Make yourself as comfortable as possible
It is important for you to remember that during these months, you are the most important person and therefore it is important that you buy anything and everything that you need to make your life better and more comfortable without thinking too much about money. Those first few months, potentially twelve or so weeks will be the most difficult because you will be getting used to the whole thing and this time can be overwhelming and difficult. You might want to use this time however to prepare for the future when your belly would have grown by buying yourself the best maternity pillow you can find in the market because as bad as these first months are, the next few months are going to be a lot worse when you have to deal with a massive belly and inability to anything by yourself.
Other things you will need to have are side sleeping pillows, comfortable maternity clothes, easy to prepare meals and potentially an account with a grocer or supermarket to get everything you need delivered to your doorstep.
While all the books in the world will not prepare you for what you are about to experience, it will be a good idea to read about new pregnancy, read experiences of other mothers and learn things about being a new parent while you wait. This will honestly help you to feel better during this time as it will help you to think more about the future than about the current situation you are in. It is also a good idea to read about the different kinds of food that you should eat during this time to make you feel better. Following a clean, plant based diet for example can reduce the nausea you are feeling and make you feel fitter rather than eternally tired.
