Consult with your doctor:
Before participating in moving activities, such as lifting heavy stuff, you need to consult the same with your doctor. If your condition is stable and there are not many complications in your pregnancy, then your doctor can allow you to take part in the moving tasks. But you need to take care of few things, such as, for a pregnant lady, it is not advisable to lift things for more than one hour in the entire day.
Also, keep in mind that the amount of weight that any pregnant women can carry depends upon the duration of their pregnancy like in case if the pregnancy is more than 20 weeks then pregnant women should not lift more than 13 pounds of weight and before 20 weeks, she should not lift more than 18 pounds of weight.
Ask for extra help when shifting:
Before actual moving day, one needs to pack their entire stuff and it gets really difficult and tiresome for a pregnant lady to do entirely the packing all alone. Also, it can be harmful to the mother as well as to the child. Therefore, do not be careless and get as many helpers as you need for packing all your belongings.
You can also hire professional and experienced packers. They will be responsible for packing your entire stuff safely and securely. If your budget does not allow hiring professional packers, then you can ask your family, friends, or relatives to help you out in the packing.
Not just for packing, you can get the help of professionals for any moving-related tasks. Like hire the full-service professional movers who help you to do all the moving tasks and you just have to supervise the things.
Try to minimize your stress:
Moving to another place is a very exhausting and stressful process. So, you need to give your best shot to minimize the same stress because taking stress is not good for your as well as your growing baby’s health. To free yourself from all the anxiety should be your top priority over the moving procedure.
You can incorporate certain tips, such as getting proper sleep, reading pregnancy-friendly books, doing mild exercises or yoga, doing meditation and deep breathing, etc., to keep in check the level of stress. You can also, treat yourself by having a spa or massage to alleviate your body from various muscle and nerve tensions. Take out enough time for yourself and also don’t compromise with your sleep.
Be extra careful:
You need to be extra careful with yourself on the actual moving day to avoid any miss-happening. Pack a moving kit that consists of all your medication, toiletries, and snacks to keep sugar level in check, clothing, phone charger, etc., that you will need immediately after shifting to the new house.
It is seen that accidentally falling from the stairs is the most common reason for a miscarriage. And during the moving process, the chances of the same are high. Therefore, be extra cautious while moving up or down the stairs.
Also, try to get all renovation done before shifting to the new house to avoid the smell of chemicals. You need to be careful during the entire moving no matter in which task you are participating in. Pay attention to your safety at first before you pay attention to anything else.
When moving, you need to be sure that safety should be your primary concern instead of all the other tasks. You should always pay attention to the child in your womb and your health. Even when you are participating in moving-related tasks make sure you take enough care of yourself. Once you have reached the destination, fully relax on the coming weekend and then start fresh. Use the above recommendations to have a successful and smooth move without affecting your pregnancy.

Heinz has just rolled out a new product that the condiment company says is the "biggest innovation in sauce since the packet itself." Earlier this month, the world's largest producer of ketchup announced the Packet Roller, a ketchup bottle-shaped gadget that allows users to squeeze the most out of a condiment packet, CNN reported.
"Do not click 'purchase' unless you are prepared to change everything about the way you sauce," the Heinz Packet Roller website says. The roller goes for $5.70. The roller is pocket-sized, can be added to a keychain, and features a packet corner cutter.

This announcement could be part of the fast-tracked, "future-focused culinary and packaging innovations" that Steve Cornell, president of Kraft Heinz's US grocery business unit, hinted at earlier this year amid a shortage of ketchup. A surge in takeout and delivery food orders during the pandemic led to a scarcity of ketchup packets, the report said.
In April, Heinz pledged to increase production of ketchup by 25 per cent to 12 billion packets annually. "Gone are the days of fumbling with ketchup packets, pants ruined by mustard disasters, and minutes taken off your life trying to get to the bottom of that mayo packet. With the patent-pending Heinz Packet Roller, what was once taxing becomes simple -- just snip and roll to squeeze out every drop of your sauce of choice," the website says

Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer, who is recovering from a right-knee surgery he underwent last month, said on Sunday that it was a difficult process to decide whether to undergo a third right-knee surgery after having two last year. But following Wimbledon, where he was "really unhappy" with his performance in reaching the quarterfinals, Federer opted to go through with it.
Federer, who made a late decision to attend this year's Laver Cup in Boston -- a tournament held between teams from Europe and the rest of the world -- said on the sidelines of the event that the recovery and rehabilitation are "going to take me a few more months and then we'll see how things are at some point next year". "The reception I've received, everybody is so upbeat that I'm here. They wish me all the best and they don't even see the crutches. They just want me to be good again and enjoy the weekend," Federer said in an interview for the event with former world No. 1 Jim Courier.
"I've seen some incredible tennis, some great matches and it's been wonderful. I'm really happy I made the trip," the winner of 20 majors was quoted as saying by atptour.com. On why he opted for a third surgery, the tennis ace said, "I was just nowhere near where I wanted to be to play at the top, top level. But I tried my best and at the end... too much is too much. Now I've just got to take it step by step," Federer said.

"I've got to first walk again properly, run properly and then do the sidesteps and all the agility work and then eventually I've got to be back on the tennis court. But it's going to take me a few more months and then we'll see how things are at some point next year. "I've got to take my time. I don't want to rush into anything at this point. This is also for my life. I want to make sure I can do everything I want to do later on. There's no rush with anything, so I'm actually in a really good place. I think the worst is behind me. I took the time and, I don't know, I'm just really in a good place. I'm really happy."
Federer received thunderous ovations inside Boston's TD Garden, where he has often been sitting in the front row watching the action or behind the scenes visiting with the players. The former world No. 1 has played in the first three editions of the Laver Cup. "I think Boston is a great city. The stadium is wonderful, the crowds have been incredible. Both teams are stacked with absolute quality and top players," Federer said. "That's what the idea was behind it: that everybody could come together, have the most incredible weekend, learn from one another and then hopefully that's going to inspire them, motivate them and get them going for the rest of this year, next year."

Cleopatra, was regarded as a great beauty, to preserve her skin, she took her daily bath in donkey milk.

The milk contains essential fatty acids that work as powerful anti-ageing and healing properties. These fatty acids blur the wrinkles on the skin and help to regenerate damaged skin. Plus, donkey milk also contains anti-bacterial properties which are effective in healing skin irritation and redness.

Antioxidant and Nutrient-Rich
Known as a "natural elixir of youth", donkey milk is packed with antioxidants and nutrients. It contains vitamin E, amino acids, vitamins A, B1, B6, C, E, Omega 3, and 6. These properties together make it a rich ingredient when it comes to skin treatment. Moreover, vitamin D is another important ingredient for human skin, and the primary source to get it is through UV exposure. At the same time, too much of that leaves an adverse effect on the skin. Here is when donkey milk acts as a great substitute as it naturally contains vitamin D. All in all, if this milk is applied frequently, it brings a glowing effect while making the skin look brighter.
