  • I use to love Bingo but the thickness of smoke in the air made me stop going when I got pregnant. I would suggest pampering yourself, eat like there's no tomorrow, be lazy, go shopping for you not the baby.

  • Things that I am finding helpful are going for short walks about 15 to 20 minutes. This allows me time just to sort through my thoughts and I feel better afterwards knowing that I just did something healthy.

    At discount stores you can find all sorts of inexpensive products to create an at home spa of sorts. There is a single use chocolate facemask that you can buy from stores like Wal-Mart that smells and looks like you are putting chocolate frosting on your face. It smells devine and feels wonderful.

    Grab yourself one of those lavender mint, or other great smelling foot lotions. Soak your feet then rub lotion onto your feet afterwards or have daddy do that for you.

    Go to Marshall's or Bulington coat factory to see what lotions and potions they have for inexpensive prices. Luxury soaps and lotions make you feel pampered and relaxed.
    Try a hair masks or intense conditioning treatment. Again you can find these for inexpensive price

  • DO NOT EAT AS MUCH AS YOU may get depressed. It is not fun trying to get the Weight off...MYTH BUSTER Do NOT EAT ALL YOU comedies, go to the local indoor pool for water aerobics, it was 1.50 or .75 cents , read magazines, books, the pool is the best though....just DO NOT OVEREAT!

  • reading book, painting, praying and taking a bath personally helps me a lot. i also did prenatal yoga and started watching a lot of tv(something i never did b4). Lights some candles... chills me out just to be around lit candles. meditation.
