Pampering Your Pregnancy

Stretch Marks

For anyone out there wanting to keep stretch marks away, a friend told me during my 1st pregnancy to use Bag Balm. You get it at any drug store. It is a nasty looking, nasty smelling and very greasy. I was huge with my son and I smeared it faithfully all over my stomach and breasts. I never got one stretch mark on my entire body from pregnancy. Now I am 6 months pregnant with my 2nd child and faithfully smearing bag balm all over again, and I have elastic skin. Not one stretch mark appearing.

Comfort Measures During Pregnancy

During the last few months of pregnancy, earlier discomforts may become more noticeable or new ones may occur. This information may help you to be more comfortable, and sometimes safer, during this final phase of your pregnancy.

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are a common occurrence of pregnancy, usually more noticeable in the third trimester, and they tend to become more pronounced with each pregnancy. You are more likely to develop varicose veins if other members of your family had them during their pregnancies.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is the health maintenance of the spinal column, discs, related nerves and bone geometry without drugs or surgery. Chiropractic care is safe during pregnancy when provided by a chiropractor that has been trained in the physical changes that occur within a pregnant woman's body.
