Survey: Pregnant Women's #1 Struggle Is Fatigue & Exhaustion
Posted on 08 March 2017
This just in: the biggest problem pregnant women face is fatigue and exhaustion.
You might be rolling your eyes, thinking "DUH!"
But hear us out. :)
We conducted a survey in order to figure out the biggest problem for pregnant women. We asked all kinds of questions about pregnancy, prenatal workouts, maternity clothing preferences, and more so that we could learn how we can best serve you.
We asked women about their biggest pregnancy struggles regarding exercise, and fatigue and exhaustion were the most common problems they faced.
Here are some more of the more specific answers:
"I'm SO tired after working a full day"
"So tired. All. The. Time."
"Chasing my toddler and living the rest of my life is a workout by itself."
We could go on and on, but you get the picture.
You're growing a human - and that is HARD WORK!
When asked about eating healthy meals during pregnancy, most women responded that they simply didn't feel like planning the meals.
Making meal plans and shopping lists take a lot of mental effort that you might not be up for during pregnancy.
We totally get it. Combine growing a tiny human with having a spouse, a threenager, older kids that need to be at extracurricular activities, a job outside the home, and all your other responsibilities, no wonder your body is exhausted.
Who feels like being active or cooking meals every day when you've got all this other stuff going on?!
Something we saw and experienced firsthand as we designed our Mumband apparel, and over and over again during our pregnancies, is that when you’re pregnant and not feeling so great, the best thing that you can do for your body is MOVE.
Start small if you have to, because even going for a short walk is going to feel better than laying on the couch as soon as you get home from work. Just move!
We know that sounds cliche...but trust us when we say WE'VE BEEN THERE, and we know how it feels to have no energy.
