5 Special Tips For Pampering Yourself While Pregnant
A woman deserves to be pampered, especially when she’s pregnant. While there are many spa treatments you can’t take advantage of while pregnant, there are still several wonderful ways to pamper yourself. Whether it’s a special pregnancy massage or even a trip to your favorite candy store, you can treat yourself to something nice. Here are just five special tips for pampering yourself while pregnant.
Get a Pregnancy Massage
A pregnancy massage is a wonderful way for women to enjoy the stress-relieving benefits of a massage without having to worry about harm coming to the baby. It’s important that you find a massage therapist that is certified in this type of massage.
Create a Homemade Ice Cream Concoction
Ice cream is a favorite among pregnant women. Unfortunately, you can’t run out to the Coldstone down the street at 3AM. However, you can make your very own ice cream concoction at home. All you need to do is allow your favorite flavor of ice cream to soften and then mix in your favorite candy, nuts or even even salty snacks, such as pretzels. Top the concoction with hot fudge sauce and enjoy.
Enjoy a Night In
Sometimes women just need a bit of time alone with a good book. Send hubby out for the evening and plop down on the couch with a good book, some decadent chocolate (or the ice cream concoction listed above) and just rest. You may also want to watch your favorite guilty pleasure on TV or watch a romantic comedy.
Spring for a Night Out
Of course, women also need a night out on the town and a bit of romance. Make reservations at your favorite restaurant and then plan for a walk on the beach or in the park afterward. Do whatever you love to do to spark the romance between you and your sweetie.
Candy Store Raid
Last, but not least, give in to temptation once and a while and visit your local candy store. Create a box of your favorite goodies and enjoy them all by yourself. Forget about that whole sharing thing. After all, you’re the one that’s pregnant and mommas need chocolate.
You may think that pampering yourself while pregnant is out of the question, but you’re wrong. There are a number of ways to indulge in sweet treats and other luxuries. Remember, pregnancy can be stressful and a hormonal nightmare. Don’t you deserve a bit of pampering to help sooth those storm waters?
