Pregnant Women Dont Just Stay at Home; Go Shopping!

Most women like to go shopping. However, sometimes pregnant women reluctant to go out because they are afraid could harm them. That's not true! Go and have fun. You don't have to spend any money; just get out and window shop. Try on shoes; check out the new fall purses or sample a new cookie at the corner stand. Shopping is very therapeutic for women, and it gives you a chance to clear your mind.

If you are feeling ambitious, though, or cannot justify taking an afternoon off to shop, give yourself a chore, like deciding on nursery room colors or selecting a crib. Then, you will feel like you are accomplishing something as you go.

Do not get stressed out, however, if you do not find what you want right away. Remember, you are just looking now. There is no hurry to immediately find and/or buy everything, especially since friends and family will want to help by bringing gifts to your baby shower.

If you would rather shop for clothes, purses or makeup, though, that's also fine. Sometimes, it is good to step away from the "mommy" world and remember that you are also a woman who has her own needs and wants. Don't feel guilty if you need some "you" time or if you need a little something to perk up your spirits. A new maternity outfit or a sweet scented lotion may be all you need to feel de-stressed and reinvigorated. You might also feel good just trying out new perfumes and seeing what those strappy sandals look like on (even if you know they would kill your feet!).

Just remember that while you are out shopping, you need to be relaxing. Treat yourself to an ice cream cone or catch a new movie if the mall has a theatre. Any of these activities will help you let go of your stress and refresh your spirits. Then, you will be fully ready to be Mommy again!
