3 Tips For Managing Pregnancy & Morning Sickness While Moving:
You were excited when your partner came home and told you about the new job offer. Yes, you would need to move to lessen the commute, but it would be fun looking for a new home. Then what happened is that you got another surprise! You found out you were pregnant. It’s a really exciting time for you, and the timing seems good since you’d need a larger home anyway.
But unfortunately, you didn’t factor in how you’d feel when you have all this planning and packing to do. You can hardly leave the bathroom you’re so nauseous. It comes in waves and you never know when you’re going to be sick. Is there any way to manage morning sickness so that you can get through your move?
1. Adjust Your Eating Habits When you start feeling queasy, the thought of eating anything makes it worse. You can’t even have a taste of those rich greasy dishes you love so much. Your appetite is gone. The problem is that low blood sugar makes morning sickness worse so you feel more tired and light-headed. To avoid feeling worse, nibble on small snacks throughout the day.
Every pregnant woman is different in terms of what foods they can tolerate, but many agree that bland carbohydrates, like soda crackers, pretzels, dry toast or potato chips can quickly settle their stomach. Other women respond well to ginger snaps, citrus candies and herbal teas. Just test out different types of foods and keep track of what works and what doesn’t. Then make sure you have these foods handy on moving day.
Get Your Move On Earns Esteemed 2016 Angie’s List Super Service Award
Award reflects company’s consistently high level of customer service
Get Your Move On has earned the home service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of customer service to members of the local services marketplace and consumer review site in 2016.
This achievement is particularly significant as Angie’s List experienced unprecedented member growth in 2016. More than 1.6 million consumers, many of whom were eager to quickly hire highly qualified service pros, joined Angie’s List after the company added a new, free membership tier.
“Companies that can meet higher demands without missing a beat in their exemplary performance standards truly do stand apart from their peers,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “Only a fraction of the moving companies in Arizona were able to do it.”
Angie’s List Super Service Award 2016 winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade, and review period grade. The SSA winners must also be in good standing with Angie’s List, pass a background check and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.
Service company ratings are updated daily on Angie’s List as new, verified consumer reviews are submitted. Companies are graded on an A through F scale in areas ranging from price to professionalism to punctuality.
For more than 21 years, Angie’s List restricted access to its verified reviews to consumers who paid membership fees. When the company removed that barrier, some companies worried that the new, non- paying members would not be as engaged as members of the past. Experience has shown, however, that these newly added members are just as engaged – across all age groups – as prior members. Also, because the company continues to adhere to its review verification process, there has been no degradation of review quality.
“The biggest change at Angie’s List is that we are connecting even more consumers to high quality service professionals,” Hicks said. “And that’s good for everyone.”
