Pregnancy can be defined as the period of hormone imbalance. Being pregnant with my third, I can assure you of how unreasonable and stupid I could get during my pregnancies. And it is definitely the hormones. I can swear by it! Trust me when I say, I cried for a good two hours because my partner did not compliment on the new dress that I had worn. I was so upset. But thinking about the incident, post pregnancy left in tears. This time tears of laughter. At the moment too, I am experiencing the effects of this hormonal imbalance. But thankfully this time I set my foot down and decided to take action!
Here are some of my findings on how to overcome the downs of pregnancy:
Spa treatments are great in helping us pregnant women relieve our minds. And the effects of a good spa treatment will help you overcome the stress perks experienced during pregnancy. I find myself to be very stress out and moody sometimes for no rational reason during pregnancy. What I do is get myself a spa treatment occasionally. It has helped me greatly during this pregnancy, especially with having to deal with two other brats!
Pregnancy acupuncture Melbourne is now a very common and well known ‘thing’ with the pregnant ladies. Yes even with us, the western pregnant ladies. You will be surprised to find out how many pregnant ladies actually come to the acupunctural medical clinic that I visit. This has helped me relieve my stress levels and also helped me sleep properly at night. Being sleep deprived is one of the most common problems with pregnancy and this technique has greatly helped me in this regard.
Occupying the mind
The saying an empty mind is a devils workshop cannot get any more true. When you have nothing to do, or doing the usual repetitive household chore your mind is not being occupied. When the mind is empty it will start to concentrate on the hormonal imbalance that the body is experiencing unconsciously. But if you are able to occupy your mind with something, you will be able to easily get rid of the effects of hormonal imbalance. Since most of the effects are created in our minds only. The Chinese herbal medicine of acupunctural method is a well known reliever for pregnant mums just as occupying the mind is.
Lastly, but most importantly you should communicate the problems with your partner. You should explain it to him that you understand how stupid or unreasonable your pregnant demands may be. But sometimes, you just need them fulfilled. You will need to educate them on pregnancy depression and also post partum depression. Most partners are very supportive during this trying and very difficult time period. But you first need to communicate it with them. Only then will they fully understand the gravity and act accordingly!
