  • Relax, because its the only time before the baby that you will be able to. you had plenty of time with 39 weeks, so everything is done. watch tv and sleep

  • its normal. lol

    I don't have patience either....and waiting for all three to come was horrible (and #1 was late - brat)

    find something that will occupy your hands and your mind. word puzzles, walk, start a craft or hobby (scrapbook, crochet, crossstitch, sewing)

  • it can be tough those last few weeks! i always try to focus on 42 weeks so that i wouldn't grow too impatient but i know it's hard. you want to meet your baby, you want to have your body to yourself again, you want to be able to sleep comfortably, etc! i bought a pregnancy relaxation CD on and i think that really helped. gl!

  • Take a hot bath! Start writing a letter to your baby explaining how anxious you are for them to arrive! Watch a movie, cook some meals and store them in the freezer, you may not have as much time after the baby gets here!
