If you’re pregnant, but aren’t ready to make an announcement, you can easily pass on alcoholic beverages without giving your secret away. Pretend that you had an infection and are taking antibiotics. Alternatively, you can drink cranberry juice from a wine glass, but tell others that you are drinking red wine. You can also pretend to drink your favorite beverage. If you’re not sharing your pregnancy with others, make sure that your partner knows that you’re not sharing the information yet.
Consult your doctor as soon as you make the decision to try for a baby. It is vital that you speak with a doctor before trying to have a baby, so you make sure your pregnancy is a healthy one. If there’s any changes or steps, make them now so you can boost your odds of conceiving. While the human skin is elastic, it is limited in its ability to stretch. As your skin is stretched during pregnancy, it can become itchy. To make it more comfortable, don’t take hot showers or baths. The hot water can strip the skin of naturally forming oils and leave it itchier and more dry. Be sure to moisturize with something heavy, such as cocoa butter, or petroleum jelly. You should wear clothing that fits loosely and be sure not to scratch!
