Don’t Skimp on the Pedi

Even if you’ve never been one to get frequent pedicures, during pregnancy is the time to indulge in them… a lot. As your belly bulges it becomes more and more difficult to reach your toes, let alone hold onto one puffy digit long enough to clip a nail.

I can remember, at eight months, trying to trim my toenails and practically passing out from the effort. My husband came home to find me contorted, huffing and red-faced on the family room floor. In the third trimester, you really do need the help.

Plus, those toes get a lot of viewing, particularly when your feet are up in the stirrups for hours on end. Who wants to look at dirty, long, yellowing and ridgey toenails? And let’s admit it ladies, even during the winter months, we sometimes wear sandals because of the swelling and discomfort of the closed-toe shoe.

So, for your sake as well as your husband’s. partner’s, doctor’s, friend’s and nurse’s, don’t skimp on the pedi!

Ugh, I think I just threw up in my mouth. That picture was gross! I do agree, however, that a good mani/pedi is essential whether you are 9 months pregnant or not!
