When should you schedule maternity photos? This is one of the difficult questions faced by pregnant women. However, we have proved an in-depth answer to such question in this blog post. Maternity photos are a great way to document your pregnancy.
Here’s when you should schedule maternity photos:
– When you’re feeling good about yourself and want some professional mementoes of the time leading up to the baby’s arrival. Maternity shoots generally take place in the second trimester, but again, it all depends on what works for each mom (and her comfort level). It can be earlier if there is an increased risk of miscarriage or later if morning sickness makes taking them difficult.
You’ll need at least two outfit changes – one casual with pants/dress; another formal with dressy top/skirt etc.; hair washed & styled nicely; makeup applied well which means no eye allergies or blemishes!
– It’s recommended that you wait until the third trimester to schedule your maternity shoot. By then, the baby bump is in its full glory and you’re feeling great! You can wear close to anything at this point when it comes to outfits because by now everything should be getting too snug/tight on you anyway.
The best time for a photo session is mid-afternoon when there’s enough light so we’ll get good quality pictures without having to use flash or harsh lighting which could irritate your sensitive eyes & skin more than necessary (and also cause shadows).
So if possible, try not scheduling them too early morning or late evening hours near sunset as natural light gets softer around those times of day plus all that squinting would probably ruin everyone’s mood.
Should I buy a size up when pregnant?
Yes! When pregnant you should buy clothes in the next size up when your regular clothes stop fitting.
What is happening in my body when I’m pregnant?
When you are pregnant, your body is working hard to support the growing fetus. Your uterus will expand up to five times its normal size and this can cause some discomfort for both you and your baby.
You might also notice that one side of your abdomen feels more prominent than the other or that one leg becomes bigger than the other as well! This could be because blood flows have changed in pregnancy which often makes legs swell. Keep reading here for more information on what changes happen during pregnancy!
What are some symptoms of pregnancy?
Many different symptoms can happen during the first trimester, including fatigue, nausea/vomiting, breast tenderness or increased sensitivity, intense cravings or aversions to certain foods, frequent urination (especially at night), constipation or diarrhoea.
There are also other signs you might notice such as bloating in your hands and feet along with weight gain around your middle area. Other common symptoms include headaches, mood swings…etc. Keep reading here for more!
Should your size up in maternity jeans?
When you are pregnant your body changes shape dramatically. Swelling in the legs is common, as well as increased size of one leg to another. If this happens to you then it’s worth sizing up in maternity jeans!
What foods can I eat while pregnant?
Pregnancy cravings are very real – which is why we have created the best list of what NOT to eat when pregnant so that you know all the things not to put in your mouth (aside from those pickles). Pregnant women must avoid certain types of fish such as swordfish, king mackerel, tilefish etc. because they contain mercury.
When choosing fish mealtimes need to try and find something that has omega-three fatty acids like salmon or tuna. Additionally, it is important to avoid raw fish, sushi and pregnant women should eat no more than two portions of oily fish a week.
Pregnant women must also be careful when eating meat because certain types could cause toxoplasmosis, which can damage the unborn baby’s nervous system.
When cooking any poultry you must cook it thoroughly until there’s no pink visible before eating or feeding your child as undercooked meats might contain salmonella bacteria.
Also, ensure all meat is cooked through by checking for juices running clear and not bloody, this will help prevent food poisoning caused by listeria monocytogenes bacterium found in some cured meats such as ham and sausages etc., however, if you are unsure always ask the person serving to ensure it’s cooked properly.
What should you wear in your first trimester?
During the first few months of pregnancy, it is best to be comfortable. Wear breathable fabrics such as cotton and other natural fibres that will keep you cool while still protecting your body from harmful UV rays.
You can choose a variety of items for this period including short sleeve shirts, long-sleeved tops with collars or light sweaters etc.,
If you can stand wearing jeans during this stage then go ahead but due to abdominal bloating avoid anything too tight around the waist area’s i.e. button up or zip fly where possible until later on into second/third trimesters when things start getting more regular again.
