5 reason why every mom should get some ‘Me Time’

Whether you’re a new mom, or mom to an older kid, you still need some ‘Me Time’. Being a mom is a rewarding job, but it can be taxing as well. It is important to take care of yourself too when you’re raising your children. However, most new moms find it difficult for care for themselves. This is precisely why some me-time and self-care is so important.

Here are some of the reasons why every mom should get some ‘Me Time’:

  1. It Improves your mood

Taking care of your baby all the time may leave you tired and exhausted. This may be a reason why you are feeling irritated at the smallest things. Sometimes, it is good to take a break from it all. It helps you relax and recharge. After all, you can’t help anyone unless you help yourself. Reading a book, going to a salon etc. are all things you can do to enjoy some me time.

  1. It Helps you focus

When you’re so involved with taking care of your little one, there are always a million other things going on in your life. It may not always be easy to focus on everything. Taking some me time helps you regain that focus and concentrate on the things that you’re doing.

  1. You can’t help them until your help yourself

This is very true for any person, especially new moms. Until you take care of yourself, you will not be in a position to help anyone else. Taking some me time and doing things that you love will make you feel better about yourself, improve your physical and emotional health, and help you take better care of your loved ones.

  1. Your kids will grow up one day

Your children will not be your responsibility forever. They will soon grow up, but it doesn’t mean you stop loving or nurturing them any less. In fact, it is important to remember to work on being the person that you want to become, along with being a mom. Never forget your dreams and passion, and continue on the same path towards self-discovery.

  1. You’re a human being

Just because you’re a mom, doesn’t mean you have to be at the beck and call of your little one all the time. It is important to take time for yourself and do something you love to do. It doesn’t mean you love your kids less, so don’t feel guilty about your me time.

Give yourself permission to do something that you love. Taking time to remember the person that you are will actually make you a better mom. It also helps keep postpartum depression at bay. For any advice on baby blues or depression, see your doctors at KIMS Cuddles.

Reasons for periods to be late if Pregnancy test is Negative

More often than not, a missed period is an indicator of a woman’s pregnancy. However, that isn’t always correct. A woman may have a delayed or missed period but still, have a negative pregnancy test. There may be several reasons for that happening. Here are some of them: Low Hormone Levels During early pregnancy, the levels of the pregnancy hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) aren’t high enough for a home pregnancy test to detect. So if you’re trying to get pregnant, your negative test result on a home kit may not be correct and you might be pregnant. A woman’s cycle may keep varying and if she conceives later in the cycle, the hormone levels may be low at the time of her missed period. To rule out any complications, be sure to talk to your doctor if you miss your periods and continue to do so. Ectopic Pregnancy Although rare, an ectopic pregnancy can show up as negative on a home pregnancy test. Only about 3 percent or fewer cases of negative tests point towards an ectopic pregnancy. If you have these symptoms along with a negative result, see your doctor immediately: Severe pain in lower abdomen or on one side Dizziness or lightheadedness Bleeding or spotting Nausea and vomiting
