Pregnancy generates all sorts of hormones in your body that you can’t control. You may find yourself having a difficult time dealing with stress, and may be short tempered, moody and otherwise just irritable and miserable. A good facial, massage or body scrub can do wonders to ease some of that tension.
However, those on bed rest while pregnant can’t get away to get that much needed facial or body scrub. Also, in these tough economic times, it may not be financially feasible for non-bed ridden pregnant women to blow away cash pampering themselves, but that doesn’t mean they cant.
Hubpages has some great low cost recipes that you (or your spouse or partner, if you are on bedrest) can whip up using items already in your fridge and kitchen cabinet! Fab!
