Washing clothes in pregnancy
You might be thinking, washing clothes during pregnancy isn’t necessarily that fun. You’re tired, probably got backache, and eventually, that bump is going to get right in the way! That means it’s worth getting the help of a partner or friend to do these kinds of chores, especially during your third trimester, if you can. Avoid lifting heavy loads – do it little by little if this is easier.
When it comes to maternity wear, washing clothes in pregnancy needn’t be too different to any other time. Whether second-hand or recently bought, most can go straight in with your regular wash! Just watch out for any detailing, like draw-strings or buttons. These are quite common on maternity wear as they give a more flexible fit, but aren’t great in machines. Try putting items in a mesh bag and/or washing on a gentle spin cycle.
