Updated on September 27, 2016

As your body grows and adapts to all the pregnancy back pains and sores, you will surely be wishing that you have a more comfortable chair, bed, couch and hammock to sit, rest and sleep. Surprisingly, there are actually helpful ways so you can have the desired comfort inside and outside your homes.

Put an additional cushion to your chair or you might want to do a handmade pillow as a back rest like shown in the photo.

How to Stay Comfortable in the Office

In the office, choose a chair with a stronger and adjustable armrest to keep you safe once you will have the difficulty in standing up and sitting down. You can also add an extra cushion on your chair and a support to your back to avoid sores and back pains. Also, make sure your chair won’t leave your feet hanging in the air without support. Always level your feet on the floor or ground while sitting to avoid sore ankles and to maintain a normal flow of the blood on your veins.

How to Have a Good Night Rest

Sleeping is one of the factors of pregnancy that gets disturbed when you are expecting. There are pregnant women who cannot even sleep at night because of discomfort. This mostly affects women who are used to sleep on a certain position which she cannot do when she is pregnant. Others even take sleeping aids like pills and drinks just to have a good night rest. Experts suggest that when you are pregnant, you should sleep on your left side to keep the blood flow normal and is good for you and your baby. For some, sleeping on the sofa, the couch or on a hammock will give them enough comfort for the whole night. Sleeping on a hammock during pregnancy seems a funny idea but it is an actual fact. To those who do this, make sure to tie the hammock straps securely. Hammock sets come in many forms and quality so better yet find for the most qualified brand for your safety. 7th Heaven Hammock for example sells a high quality doublenest hammock which can hold up to 400lbs. and is made of high quality parachute silk. Their hammock set comes with hammock straps that can easily be set up and removed after use.

How to Enjoy an Outdoor Activity

Your nine months of pregnancy will surely prevent you from a lot of things like going out at night but not during daytime as long as you have a handy couch or hammock with you to rest and sit. Going to the beach and having fun with your family will still give you a happy memory. With your lowered stamina, you will surely get tired easier than the usual so you have to carry a handy couch for you to sit on or a hammock to rest on. Inflatable couches are now offered in the market and can easily be set up by pumping enough air. Lately, I saw this inflatable lounge which is also one ideal couch to carry anywhere. If you are in a place where there are poles or trees where you can hang your hammocks, then it is also one good place for you to take a good rest.

It is nice to stay comfortable during the course of your pregnancy but, always remember to at least have a moving break and do not overstay on your couch or hammocks. At work, give every hour a break to stand up and walk or do other things for a moment before going back to sit.
