  • try to spend plenty of alone time with your hubby and rest, cause once the baby comes it's just about out the window it becomes a rare chance for all of that.

  • Go on one more date night before 38 weeks. We had one planned before the due date but she came at 38 weeks and it didnt happen.

  • definitely enjoy those last exciting moments of wonder before the little one arrives. And try not to stress the small things :) oh and if you like to read, read a book. I have not read a book since DD was born 20+ months ago!

  • Be aware :) Aware of how your life is going to change, take time to write a few things down, maybe in a journal or baby book. You THINK you will always remember these things, but you forget :)

    Enjoy your SO, maybe take a short CLOSE :)

  • Start a journal or at least buy a huge wall calendar so that you can jot down things like illness, meds given, special milestones achieved, teeth that come in, play dates, meeting new visitors, all the firsts when you have no time to journal. Special thoughts for today can be turned into a journal later. :)
