“A mother’s joy begins when new life is stirring inside when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the very first time, and a playful kick reminds her that she is never alone.”
The anticipation of this moment begins from the day you decided that you are taking the next step towards having a child. You may wish you had the child in your arms right there and then, but there are lots of trials and tribulations before that day arrives. One of the highest points in this journey is when you discover that you are in fact pregnant – for many this event comes unexpectedly without notice, for some is the culmination of a long and arduous process.
But regardless of the journey that led to that moment – that moment is unforgettable, a moment when you realize that your life has taken a sharp turn.
You swell with pleasure and delight, but your body is suddenly experiencing a mini storm from the inside, even though everything looks perfect from the outside. The hormones are raging through the body preparing you for conception – and it comes with all kinds of side effects – aches, pains, nausea, fatigue and so on. You take some time to mentally prepare yourselves for the upcoming journey and then with your spirits high you get down to the job of making this a beautiful experience for you and your baby.
Looking back, this is the point when you become a mother – when you realize that you have this opportunity to bring a beautiful person to this world, and start caring for that person more than you ever cared for yourselves.
There are a lot of purchases you can make to make this experience awesome, but broadly I can classify all the pregnancy related purchases into these four needs that you need to meet. Be cognizant that I am not touching on every aspect of pregnancy, only the areas where buying the right products can make a difference. The pregnancy products “must haves” can be grouped as below
• Looking Good – Pregnancy Wear, Beauty solutions, etc.
• Feeling Good – Eating right, Exercising
• Pregnancy Accessories
• Preparing for Pregnancy – Reading, Baby Registry, Photo Storage, etc.
