  • Take long walks, take warm baths in the dark with candles lit and no noise and just lay there and relax, go to the mall with your girl friends and window shop and grab a bite to eat, go get a pedicure, get involved with church and talk to other people...it always helps when there are positive church ppl around.

  • Drink chamomile (sp) tea and start a project to keep yourself busy. You could get a baby book and spruce it up in your own creative way.

  • I get lost in a good book. Even if just for 5 minutes.

  • Prayer, meditation, talking with friends, and exercise work for me. I'll be keeping you and the family in my prayers,Hon.

  • Do all of the above, make sure you get enough sleep (yeah, right!) and eat nutritious food.
