Can this happen and if so what are the kind of activities that you could indulge in?
Meeting a friend over coffee: Once in while, having caffeine is not bad and you could surely catch up with your best friend or a bunch of friends who understand your need to feel good during pregnancy. This could be at someone’s home or at a café of your choice.
Watching a comedy movie or well known cartoon movie in theatres: Being pregnant does not mean you have to cut down completely on your social activities. Unless instructed by your Obstetrician who would have informed you to curtail your social do’s you need not fret. Yes do not be over adventurous to watch action or horror flicks as these are not really recommended as more than having an impact on the child you might get frightened which is not good. Instead, have fun by watching a good comedy flick or cartoons. It’s better to enjoy watching cartoons; sooner or later you will be watching much more once your baby is a toddler!
Go for shopping: Maternity phase has undergone a huge transformation. The shopping that you do in this stage for maternity clothing will not come back again. So while you shop to wear such clothes, do understand not to over indulge as these will be of minimal use post pregnancy.
Go in for allowed beauty pampers at a good salon: Going in for a manicure or pedicure will do good to your relaxation quotient. However be sure to inform your beautician that you are pregnant as some salons assign special beauticians to take care of you.
Going for a nice drive: Going out for a nice drive is definitely not a bad idea. Early mornings or late evenings when the weather is good, you could of course go in for a nice long drive with an experienced person who knows to drive the car well and not cause jerks.
Reading: Pregnancy is a time especially your second trimester onwards you would realize you will have to be calmer and paced out in your life. So if you are not working make sure to utilize the time by reading not just on pregnancy books or infant care but others that you like. It could be magazine or novels. Reading will be a treasured activity that will be difficult to indulge in once you have the baby until the time the little one is less dependent on you.
So enjoy and take care.
