If you like Christmas, you can be sure that you will be able to enjoy it even if you are pregnant. In fact, you won’t have to give up any of the parts of Christmas that you love, but you will be able to add some new experiences.
Find New Eats
It is a known fact that in the holiday season people tend to eat more. Nonetheless, you have to be careful about what you eat. Most probably you were careful with your diet in the past as well, but this year you could find some new things to nibble on, such as vegetarian canapés and elderflower cordial.
Rethink The Catch-Ups
If you are thinking about a get together with the girls, hitting the clubs might not be the best idea. However, you may always have a dinner party, Christmas market trip, go to an exhibition, a cooking class or a Sunday roast. The main point is for you guys to have fun.
If you have a child that doesn’t mean that you can’t start some new traditions. This might be watching a movie on Christmas Eve, buying new decorations, or driving around to see the lights of the houses in the neighborhood. Do whatever makes you happy and stick to it.
It is possible that the “shop till you drop” session ends quite fast for you, so there are some other ways to get everything done. For instance you could let your partner handle the holiday shopping while you enjoy a slice of cake at a café. In the same time there is also the possibility to shop online.
Channeling The Emotions
Pregnant women are often emotional. A lot of women watch sad love stories on Christmas which only make them more emotional. This year you should choose a Christmas comedy or family movie that you can enjoy with the people you love (without feeling that you have to cry).
You need a lot of energy to help the baby grow, so you simply can’t do everything on your own. As a result, you will have to delegate the chores to the people who have more energy (and less babies to carry) than you. You can be sure that the people who truly love you won’t mind.
Make sure that you will enjoy this Christmas because this is the only one you will spend with the baby still inside your belly.
