5 things you can do to feel great

Remember that old saying, “When you look good, you feel good?” Although it feels like tall order right now, it really works, especially those first few weeks, while this is your little secret. The truly challenging times, with the morning sickness, tiredness and changes to your skin. We know any help you can get looking and feeling your best, you’ll take. So here are 5 simple things we can suggest:

Get loose: Getting dressed in the first trimester is not easy. You may want to hide your growing bump but, well, there it is, getting bigger each day. Keep your belly under wraps with larger or flowing tops. Avoid bright colors on top as well as belts, which will highlight your rounding figure.

Balance: Life is all about balance, and your pregnancy style proves no different. Keep your look streamlined and chic by pairing a loose-fitting top with skinny jeans or leggings. Having trouble zipping your pre-pregnancy jeans? Get some longevity out of them by investing in a stretchy piece of fabric worn over your unzipped jeans to keep you comfortable while your belly grows.

Focus on the little things: You can get your money’s worth with maternity clothes if you can mix and match them with what you already own. You can also show your spirit through creative accessories. After all, you’ll never outgrow beautiful earrings or scarves, no matter how much baby weight you gain.

Invest in flats: There’s nothing wrong with being that stylish pregnant woman who can really rock a set of heels, but lets be realistic; at some point, your feet and back are going to rebel. Invest in a cute pair of flats that promise to lend polish and style to any outfit. Who doesn’t like comfortable and cute?

Invest in you: The first trimester is overwhelming, to say the least. You’re most likely sifting through a world of new information about your changing body and growing baby. Stressed much? We get it. Now’s the time to slow down and take it easy on yourself. You have a whole nine months ahead of you to get this whole pregnancy thing right. For now, be sure to carve out time for yourself. Go for a long walk, take a nap, spend time with family & friends, cook your favorite meal or veg out in front of a good movie. Taking care of you, is important to feeling your best.
