I have been looking up things to do while I'm pregnant to keep my mind off of going through my Divorce heres what I came up with so far.

1. Going to make a couple blankets--This is big because I dunno how to do that lol

2. Keeping a pregnancy journal.

3. Taking weekly photos with a picture I make that says whats going on in life, what I'm craving, etc.

4. Taking extra parenting classes since I'm doing this Solo.


If anyone else has any suggestions or Ideas let me know Thanks.

I'm sorry you're going through a divorce ):

The only thing I have done is take weekly pictures but I wish I would have kept track of my cravings & stuff ): That's a good idea :D

I been trying to do all the cutesy stuff. When he or she looks back I want them to see how excited I was during my pregnancy even though their daddy was being a jerk.

Have you thought of if you want a natural birth or not? I took Bradley classes - I highly suggest this. (It helped me achieve my natural birth) The classes are one a week for three months. (Best to start in the 3rd tri) since you mentioned classes, I figured I would mention this too.
I also regret not doing this, but I really wish I took more pictures (of every week) and see my bump get larger. So make sure you do that! (I know you listed that, but I said I was going to do that and I ended up only getting like 10 pictures of me pregnant lol)
Also why don't you find a moms group near you? Since you are a single mom, it might be nice to meet other moms to go and hang out with (who knows, you might find someone who is expecting the same time you are!)

Oh! And I always wished I had crocheted some clothes. I can't croshet, but the thought of learning to make a real cute coming home outfit always seemed like a good idea.

All your ideas are awesome and you should do them all. Sorry about the divorce :(

As your due date gets closer you'll be busy with setting up the nursery, or at least the crib and getting all the stuff organized. You may even go through "nesting" where you'll want to clean and arrange everything, so I'm sure that will keep you very busy.

all such cute ideas. unfortunately i haven't been doing much because i work and take care of him, the dogs and the house.. actually a lot more work than it sounds like lol

i bought a scrapbook and i've chosen good ultrasound pictures, even her 7 week 1 day one where she was just a little tadpole and i've started making that for her. i also take pictures of my belly, but not every week.. just when i remember. my mom told me to start a pregnancy journal but when i have a free moment to sit and rest i don't want to be writing haha i'm a fail first time mama :)
