Things you can and should do after birth

          It is strange how a mom-to-be forgets to care for herself. Yeah, sure, as a pregnant woman, you eat healthy, you rest as much as you need or can, do not do anything toxic, like smoking or drinking alcohol. Point is, your main goal is to take care of your little one inside of you, but doing even those everyday things that makes you feel better about yourself, lose their importance. However, after labor, there is a chance for you to get back on the track. So here are few things you could do after giving birth.

          More than just three seconds

Your baby pretty much treats your bladder like a punching bag at the end of the pregnancy. Especially those last few months are so filled with the painful need to pee at almost every hour of the day and night, but after you actually avail yourself of the facilities you probably do not have much to let out. When the first time comes after the labor, when you go to the toilet and let it all go for a little bit longer than 10 seconds will probably be a dream come true.

          Shoes on – no help needed

You probably know what I am talking about that it is so hard not being able to see your own feet without looking in the mirror. Also, obviously, putting those annoying socks and shoes, especially with laces, on can easily become one of the most difficult challenges of your day. This is why you need at least a little bit assistance with putting those on. Only after you have given birth, pulling on a clean pair of socks and tying your sneakers on your own in just a few seconds might feel better than a day in the spa.

          Face down

It is so tough not being able to sleep on your stomach. When you realize it, even though you have expected that, it is like your whole life has changed. It might honestly be one of the worst thing about being pregnant. The back is out and the worst part is, that sleeping on your side is not much better either. That extra weight still feels like it is crushing your hipbones to dust. Your lady parts can be torn, but the amazing first night after you have given birth, is truly the best.

         Oh yeah, a glass of alcohol

Just have a glass of wine in a restaurant when you are eight-months pregnant and expect those awful and punishing looks coming in your way. It does not matter if your doctor said you can drink a glass of wine and it is totally okay, those looks are unavoidable. That is why, you should definitely bring a bottle of champagne to the hospital and enjoy the happy day. After all, you truly deserve it after what you have been through those 9 months.

          Get in shape easily

When will you have another chance to be able to lose around five pounds a day by doing mostly nothing at all? Okay, it is clear that you are probably about 30 pounds overweight, but there is no reason to say that your work will be less worthy. After all, weight loss is weight loss. Stand on those weighting machine after the labor and watch pounds go away.

          Cream Away That Pesky Mustache

It is probably quite noticeable, at least for you, so the first thing you will possibly do after coming back home is making sure those blonde mustache are gone. Just in case waxing is not your thing, you might want use creams, but sadly, they are not advisable to use while being pregnant. But you know what, you are not pregnant anymore, so just use that cream and make those mustache disappear. Oh, and after that, be sure not to forget to give your loved one a big fat kiss.

          That delicious sushi

We all know about those mercury levels in all kind of fish. That is why pregnant women are advised not to eat sushi (there is clearly fish in it). But again, let me clear one fact, you are not pregnant anymore, so allow yourself to eat that delicious sushi for once. Just get yourself to the nearest restaurant and order any sushi you want.

          Shave

If you would ask me, shaving while being pregnant should surely be an Olympic sport. You have to try every position possible that man can do, just to reach every angle of your legs. There is no chance you could reach any of your lady parts, and even if you did reach, you would probably end up with a quite painful or at least unpleasant result. But now, when your body is free from that huge bump, you can easily reach any inch of your body. So go ahead, shave as much as you want.
