For most women, being pregnant means gaining a lot of weight and losing their figure. It doesn’t have to. In fact, you can still be as sexy as you are if you just put your mind to it. One of the main reasons why pregnant moms feel a little bit insecure is how they would look like with their enormous bellies, plump faces, sagging arms and legs. It’s perfectly normal to see some changes with the way you look and you might even need the extra weight to give you strength and stamina when the time comes.
So how do we stay hot and sexy during pregnancy? Well, it’s just a matter of getting the right mindset and your willingness to go the extra mile. Sure, it’s going to take a little more effort because of the added poundage and some restrictions with your body movement. But it can do a lot to the way you, and others, look at yourself. Here’s what most moms do to look and feel at their best:
Being pregnant is not an excuse for idling around. If there’s a right time for you to be physically motivated, this is it. Just a quick walk around the neighborhood 15 to 30 minutes a day or doing some housekeeping around the house could help you burn those extra calories and improve blood circulation.
Get into the gym
Yes. And I mean doing some workout. Some of the exercises that you can do to keep your muscles toned include bicep curls, squats, aerobics, and dance workouts. One advantage of working out in the gym versus doing it at home is that you become socially engaged with other people and motivates you to keep the pace. You’ll also find out that there are also pregnant moms like you who sweat it out at the gym to stay fit and sexy which all the more encourages you to work harder.
Stay in fashion
Take advantage of the fact that your breast is much fuller during pregnancy. Get some hot-looking lingerie and show off that cleavage with some chic low-cut apparel. If you’ve done your homework on staying slim and toned up, you can stick with your sexy clothes without being too conscious about how you’d look like.
There’s plenty of maternity dresses nowadays that make you look nice and trendy, so try them out as well. And don’t be ashamed to show off that bump. Be proud of the fact that you could do more than any woman to stay sexy with all the extra weight you’ve been carrying around.
Easy on the carbs
Last but not least, keep a healthy diet and low calorie intake. You don’t want putting on excessive weight and just throw all your efforts to stay in shape out of the window. Focus on fruits, and greens and lots of fluids. Since you’re baby has already taken up some space in your tummy which might give you some difficulty with your bowel movement, you should get more fiber-rich food to aid in your digestion.
Needless to say, be mindful always with what you eat and make sure it always has something for your baby’s brain and body development.
