  • I cleaned.... A LOT. I also wrote letters to the baby when I was pregnant with him telling him how I was feeling and what I did that day... stuff like that. I'm going to give them to him when he's ready. :)

  • Oh my first pregnancy, I thought I was going to go crazy from waiting...and now that I have a toddler to keep me busy this time around, I'd do anything to be bored! Haha.

    I did a ton of reading, and also signed up for DVD rentals by mail and got into some TV shows. (Pick shows with several seasons, because the DVDs will be a blessing during middle-of-the-night feedings once your baby is here too! ;-) ;-)) I also went for lots of walks! It kept me from going stir-crazy, and I figured it was just one step closer to an easier labor, so.... :) GL!

  • i had gestational diabetes, so i was at the doctors every other day for monitoring... it totally sucked, but it was nice..i would walk to the clinic... it was about a mile, round trip, i lost 75 lbs during my pregnancy... i was so busy making up his room, and getting stuff together... finalizing paper work, my will, at least updating it. Life Insurance etc, i wanted it all done, so that when i was sleep deprived i could focus on sleep and the baby .. that last month went by real fast..

  • I made sure that my sons room is perfectly the way i want it. I washed, folded, and hung up all of his clothes and blankets. I rearranged things many times. I cleaned my house repeatedly and I worked until the day he was due. In fact Im still waiting for the little bugger to come out, Im a week past my due date.......Now that is anticipation.

  • I kept a journal, cleaned alot and at the end I made my first daughter a blanket which she still has today. I was very proud and prepared the albums and the crap books for her arrival and obviously slept as much as I could! With my second daughter well having my first around was keeping me busy enough and she even helped me wash her little sisters clothes and put them away.!
