Last month of pregnancy
During the last month of pregnancy, remember to enjoy the pleasures of life without a baby. Soon it's going to take lots of planning to even be able to go out to dinner or have an intimate evening with your partner.
Here are some things that you should take care of in the last month of pregnancy while you still have the time.
* Order/buy announcements and get the envelopes addressed before the baby comes. Have your return address printed on them or use address stickers. Have plenty of thank-you notes and stamps in the house. At 37 weeks, wash everything that you have for the baby; clothes, blankets, sheets etc. Wash toys in hot soapy water or dishwasher, if possible. Get a good supply of film and camera batteries. Make sure your digital camera and video camera batteries are fully charged.
* If you plan to breast feed, buy several nursing pajamas (or 2-piece pajamas with a short top) that you really like as you will be spending pretty much the first two weeks of the baby's life in them. Get plenty of breast pads.
* Put a basket on the back of each toilet stocked with sanitary pads, underwear, your squirt bottle from the hospital and breast pads. Put a small trash can next to each toilet in your house. Get some cheap underwear that you can afford to get stained and then discard the first week or two. Or have your "old" underwear ready. I like to call them my grannie panties :-)
Avoid reclining during the last month of pregnancy. Doing so will help prevent painful back labor.
Sleep now, no matter how uncomfortable you may feel, especially during this last month of pregnancy. You will still be getting a more consistent opportunity to sleep in this last month than you will the first three months of your baby's life.
Take time to read books or visit websites on the easiest, healthiest way to lose that baby weight quick once the baby is born.
You want to be a good mommy but still feel sexy too :-)
