Women’s Health during pregnancy

Happy women's day ladies !!

A woman plays lots of roles in her life, she is a daughter, a wife, a sister,  a mom,  but while juggling with the different roles and multitasking in her life, often her own health takes a backseat. So today ladies I'd like to remind you that your utmost priority should be taking care of your own self, remember the inflight announcements? lolz.. yes the one regarding the air pressure and oxygen mask, before assisting others, secure your own mask first. Exactly! You got my point.
And taking care of your health becomes even more important when you're pregnant. No, I'm not preggers. Let me clarify that first, before any of my dear friends jump onto any conclusions while reading this post. Although I have been, and I understand it completely how important it is to care for yourself during this wonderful time of your life, and it pays afterwards too.
So take some tips from here:

Women can feel wonderful during their pregnancy if they take good care of themselves
They should increase their odds of a healthy pregnancy by following these sensible steps to keep themselves in top condition:
They need five or six well-balanced meals each day. A woman should take a prenatal vitamin each day as directed by their obstetrician or midwife. 

So take some tips from here:

They need to drink plenty of fluids (At least eight to 10 glasses a day). It  helps them to increase their blood volume. 

Every woman should avoid caffeine and artificial coloring. Because, these are very harmful for both women’s and baby’s health.

Don’t smoke or allow yourself to be exposed to secondhand smoke and don’t drink alcohol if you are a pregnant woman

Exercise is an important for your general health and also can help to reduce your stress. You can take a pregnancy exercise class or walk at least fourteen to twenty minutes every day at a moderate pace. You should walk in cool, shaded areas or indoors in order to prevent overheating. Every time you need some extra care’s for developing your health condition in pregnancy time. 

You also need to get adequate sleep (At least eight hours a night). If you're suffering from sleep disturbances, you can take naps during the day and see your physician for advice. 

You should wear comfortable, non-restricting shoes and can put your feet up several times a day to prevent fatigue and swelling of the feet, legs, and ankles. 

You should continue to wear a safety belt while riding in motor vehicles. According to the Traffic Safety Administration, the shoulder portion of the restraint should be positioned over the collar bone. The lap portion should be placed under your abdomen as low as possible on the hips and across the upper thighs, it shouldn’t above the abdomen. 

A pregnant woman should also sit as far from the air bag as possible. 

You shouldn't take over the counter medications or herbal remedies without first consulting your obstetrician or midwife.

 It is the time to make every calorie count. Foods rich in essential nutrients such as protein and iron will nourish you and your baby, and high fiber foods can help prevent constipation. Avoid some foods that can be dangerous during pregnancy, including undercooked meats and cold cuts; undercooked eggs; unpasteurized soft cheeses; and large fish. These foods contain high levels of mercury and other toxins. 

You should minimize exposure to chemicals, including those in commonly used household cleaners, paints and beauty products. You should also avoid lead dust. It can be generated during renovations in older homes. 

You need to stay away from cat litter and gardening soil, and buy organic foods as often as you can to minimize exposure to pesticides, growth hormones and other chemicals. You should be careful to wash all fruits and vegetables before eating

. A pregnant woman need to take folic acid for at least the first two or three months and vitamin D for the whole of her pregnancy and beyond.

So be aware and keep your baby safe with you.

4 Tips to Choosing a Mother of the Bride Dress That Does Not Look Elderly

Choosing a dress to wear during your daughter’s wedding can be tricky, but still an exciting process. 
As the mother of the bride, you are not only a guest but you are also there to support your daughter. 
Of course, you do not want to upstage the bride but you also want to look just as stunning next to her. 
While it is always a welcome strategy to dress for your age, it doesn’t always mean that as a mother, 
you have to look matronly. Fashion is eternal and is always open to interpretation. 
If you are comfortable and you feel confident with the dress, then there is no reason why you shouldn’t
 wear the dress to your daughter’s wedding.
To guide you further in choosing a mother of the bride dress, here are four tips to keep in mind.
1.   Choose a Style that Fits the Overall Theme
Instead of worrying too much about clashing colors and style, 
start by getting some ideas about your dress from the overall theme of the wedding. 
There are so many irresistible outfits to choose from if you just give yourself a chance. 
If it is a church wedding, a classic and elegant sleeveless dress paired with a sequined blazer 
is a smart move. If it is a beach wedding, you might want to try flowy or bohemian dresses – 
something light and comfortable to match the overall ambiance. 
If the wedding is in a unique location such as a vineyard or a garden, 
a knee-length dress with intricate flower embroidery would complement the beautiful surrounding.
2.   Show Your Best Assets
Mature women can still show off their best assets in a fashionable manner. If you have a slim figure, you can show it off with a slim fitting dress that is still flexible and comfortable to move around. 
If you have a nice shoulder and long neck, you can choose a sleeveless dress or if you want to highlight your long legs, a shorter dress is a good choice. 
Similarly, if you want to hide certain areas of your body, there are dress styles that can do the trick but still make you look great.
3.   Choose More than One Color
Life is more exciting with colors. The same is true for choosing a mother of the bride wedding dress. If the motif of the wedding is red, do not make the mistake of choosing a red dress from head to toe. 
There is a huge chance that you will upstage the bride in a not so good way. You can mix and match different palettes and wear something to neutralize the color.
 For instance, you can wear a pale red A-line dress with a darker red colored hemline and pair it with a black slim belt. 
You will look fresh and young without blinding the other guests when you walk down the aisle.
4.   Watch those Lengths
At the least, you want to be comfortable. If you choose a dress that reaches your toes, you might find it difficult to move around. A great length for the mother of the bride dress is knee-length or just below the knee. 
During the reception, there will more walking around, greeting guests, taking photos and even dancing. You don’t want to trip over because you stepped on your dress.
