10 Things every pregnant woman should do at least once
Pregnancy can have its difficult days. There is no need to wallow in pregnancy when you have the perfect list of things you should do for yourself before the baby arrives.
I wasn’t ready for my baby. Not because I didn’t prepare and buy all the perfect newborn items….
I was terrified of my Pregnancy as with most soon-to-be Mom’s. That is no reason to HIDE and WORRY for the next 10 months!
Mainly because I did nothing to prepare myself for what will be the next 18 years of my life.
At least for the next 3 years when finding babysitters and moments of time to yourself is a luxury. The Mom Guilt I get just from hiring a babysitter is enough to drive you crazy!
Just to be clear, I was excited to have a baby! Just wish I did a little more to prepare myself mentally.
Here is my pregnancy list of FUN and I WISH I HAD before my Son was born;
Find the perfect pregnancy masseuse
This would be even more perfect if you can find an at home masseuse. After awhile it takes a lot of energy to get out and the body aches you have require a little more attention so you can actually have a restful night of sleep!
Pick the perfect routine before bed
You will appreciate the quiet of the night and having a routine for me time.
- Maybe you pick a favorite show to binge watch, a series tv show you have set to record.
- Maybe you have a favorite book and candle you want to lay in bed and relax with.
- This could simply be spending a few extra minutes texting your BFF about her day. Try and keep it non baby prep related!
Find your perfect MOCK-TAIL
As a child, we had the prefect mock-tail. Personally, mine was a shirley temple. I would beg my parents for one every time we went out to eat!
Its time to re-live your childhood! Imagine all the new flavors and ideas you’ll have.
Easy Non Alcoholic Mixed drinks
Find your favorite pregnancy ice cream!
There are so many flavors and this can be a lot of fun. When you go-to the market next, be sure to pick up a few of the small containers of different flavors. You will be amazed at the ones you hadn’t tried and now taste AMAZING when you are pregnant.
My personal favorite was Ben & Jerry’s Strawberry Cheessecake and Salted Caramel Core… MMMMMMMM
Pregnancy beauty sampling
Why not! You are glowing and your hair is beautifully flowing!
Try curling your hair or even think of the fastest way you can style your hair before you get out the door. Your Mom Self will thank you in a few months.
Something new I have tried are these curlers you can wear overnight on Amazon!! I am in love!
You also want to think about Eyelash Extensions!
I still swear by how easy it is to get ready in the morning when you already have the perfect lashes!
Visit the Top 10 trendy restaurants in your area!
They will each have one of the best dishes and its so hard to get out with babies and toddlers.
Definitely try them so you can find the perfect date night spot for the nights you have a babysitter.
