How to Love Your Post Pregnancy Body
Loving your post pregnancy is mostly in your head and being confident in your new look and life as a mom. Here are a few tips on how to navigate and be prepared for you new body.
After you have the baby, you might start losing your hair. During pregnancy, sometimes your daily hair loss decreases. Once you have the baby, you might start losing more hair than normal to make up for it. Don’t panic and if you feel like it is that bad, embrace the hat trend!
Any skin discoloration or pregnancy acne may disappear after pregnancy. This is one amazing benefit.
If your vision changed during pregnancy, it will likely bounce back. It is important to get your vision checked a few month after you give birth and then again after you stop breastfeeding.
Engorgement is an awful experience that I would not wish on any women. It hurts really bad! To prevent engorgement after giving birth, breastfeed within two hours after birth if possible and nurse frequently. Also, let your baby finish nursing on one breast before switching to other.
The pregnancy belly does not go away right away, and honestly mine is still hanging around after two years. Breastfeeding is supposed to help your uterus contract and help you use the belly faster.
They can occur as you grow during pregnancy as you lose weight. It is important to care for your skin and stay hydrated to prevent them, but if you are not able to prevent them, know that 90% of women have them! They fade with time, and you learn to look past them.
Most women’s feet during pregnancy but the thing that people don’t tell you is that you foot size may change for good. I’ve heard that if you pick up a washcloth by curling your toes, this can help your foot go back to the original size. I have not done it enough to know if it works. This tip was told to me by a ballet dancer that uses it keep her high arch. Part of what makes your foot “grow” is that the arch falls.
No one talks about this, but after giving birth, you are likely to either leakage or squirts when you sneeze or cough. It makes having allergies or being sick that much work and extremely embarrassing. You can do Kegel exercises to get everything fit and in the mean time once you are all healed down there. You can use Poise Bladder supports to prevent any mishaps. Here is a coupon on them.
