Motherhood—as you likely know if you’re reading this—is rewarding, but not the bed of roses it’s often portrayed as. In fact, it can be pretty uncomfortable, painful or occasionally embarrassing, too. Here are a few conditions we can run into as we grow our little human, along with some ways to cope.
#1 Morning sickness
First of all, the person who named it morning sickness obviously never suffered from this condition. It is actually morning, noon and night sickness. And it’s worst from 6-11 weeks of pregnancy. Try to eat small meals throughout the day. As long as you’re not a diabetic, it’s okay to eat more carbohydrates at this stage since that is what the pregnancy needs. Listen to your body, and do not force yourself to eat. Btw, you are not actually eating for two–it is closer to eating for 1.01.

Creating a person may just be the most taxing act a human being can undergo. Mothers-to-be aren’t just building muscle; they’re building flesh, brain cells, and bone from scratch. Even after giving birth, mothers have to try and sleep around the nighttime feeding schedule of their newborn, followed a couple years later by chasing around a toddler with a seemingly endless amount of energy. Add to this the day-to-day pressures of work and possibly raising multiple little ones at a time, and it’s hard to imagine a more tiring position to be in—which is why having the right bed is so important. For moms and moms-to-be, this means a power bed

As an Ob-Gyn in the third trimester of my second pregnancy, I am keenly aware of the many changes the female body undergoes while doing the very important work of growing a new life. Hormones surge, ligaments and skin stretch, and bones shift to accommodate your little one, who starts off as one cell and becomes trillions of cells by birth. Momentous, certainly. But it also sounds uncomfortable, right? It is. So what can we do to make sure these nine months are more joy than pain while nurturing our future astrophysicists? One of the most important steps is ensuring adequate nightly amounts of peaceful sleep in spite of our frequent bathroom visits.

As soon as you have a tiny human being growing inside of you, your life becomes a whole lot less about you. Most women know this, of course, but many don’t know just what changes are in store for their daily habits. An expectant mom usually knows to avoid alcohol, yes, and she’s pretty sure that she should avoid too much fish, and second-hand smoke becomes extra risky… but what about her favorite cheeses? Is she still allowed to hit the gym? Can she even still enjoy a cup of coffee?
Because it’s not just about you anymore, every single decision of the day suddenly becomes more significant. And unfortunately, all of the conflicting information about pregnancy can make expectant moms lose a lot of sleep – literally. But while the occasional
