a traveling Wife: Creating New Habits While Pregnant

Creating New Habits While Pregnant

Thursday, December 1, 2016

This post was sponsored by Premama as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Pregnancy comes with a whole bunch of ups and likely a few downs. You get to partake in all the fun tasks like shopping for a new human, decorating the nursery, and picking out your baby's name. Then there are a few negative side effects like morning sickness, backaches, insomnia, etc. 

Regardless of how your pregnancy is progressing, there is one thing all us pregnant mmmas have in common - taking our prenatal vitamins.

This was definitely a new habit that I needed to start incorporating into my daily routine, which at first was not easy. Prior to finding out we were expecting, we were getting ready to list our house in Maryland for sale and move on to our next adventure in Missouri.

At 7 weeks pregnant, I had movers in my house packing all of our belongings to be transferred to storage while we searched for our new home in Missouri. Then I lived out of a hotel room and luggage for the following 8 weeks.

I didn't have my own space, or much space at all, but I tried to create a daily routine until we finally moved into our new home. Once we moved in, I had to create a new routine yet again.

When I learned about Premama products, I was thrilled that I no longer would have to carry around a large bottle of prenatal vitamins. Their individually packed multivitamin supplements were easy to just throw into my purse and I could take my vitamins any time during the day by simply mixing with my favorite beverage. I have also been a big fan or the digestive aid chew because it tastes like a treat and helps with all those digestive issues that arrise during pregnancy. 
Premama products were created to support women who are trying to conceive, expecting, or lactating. Plus their products contain similar levels of folic acid to many prescription prenatal vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids, and non-constipating iron. Yeah, constipation can be one of those negative side effects of pregnancy I was previously talking about.

So tell me, how do you form new habits when your regular daily routine gets altered?
Have you heard of Premama products?
If you are currently expecting or have been pregnant, what's one piece of advice that you received (either advice that was completely ridiculous or something that was helpful)?
