what to do?

I'm 39 weeks now and I was glad to be done with work (last day today!) cuz i'm getting tired and sleepy during a day. But now that im home I wonder what the hell should I do to keep myself from going crazy?!
I know all the cleaning and cooking and preparing for the baby, but what did you do besides that???

  • Shop leisurely. Get the baby things all washed and read. Pack your bag for the hospital. Sit around with your feet up while you still can. Read baby books. Take a little vacation and pamper yourself. Before long you'll be devoted to pampering someone else. :)

  • Go get a pregnancy massage and a facial. Pamper yourself!!! Because once your baby is born, it's going to be difficult to get out and do something just for yourself...for awhile! Congrats!

  • i watched lots of tv and read books. I really liked the book marley and me which they turned into a movie and is coming out soon. But when I got really sleepy during the day I was literally days away from having my baby so you may not have as much down time as you think ;)

  • Try catching up on shows or movies or things you know your going to need to do, but might forget to when they baby is born.. like making sure someone pays rent or stocking on diapers and food and stuff or pet food... RELAX

  • Try to get out while you can. Not that you want to brave all the holiday shoppers, I'm sure, but f it's nice where you ware, try to get some fresh air and go for a walk. Catch up with friends, because after the baby comes, you'll be so far behind on phone calls you won't believe it!
