Get Ready for Baby Day 6: Pamper Yourself-WIN a Bonus Prize

Today's Challenge it to Pamper Yourself.

Before you know it, your baby will be here and it will be all about him or her 24/7. You won't have time for a manicure or pedicure, let alone a long shower.

Take time now to pamper yourself. Go for a massage, a mani and pedi, a haircut, take a long walk with your SO, go see a movie, enjoy a dinner out with your SO or your friends, take a long shower or even a relaxing bath. Even if you have other children at home, you should still try to take a little time to yourself before the baby gets here.

How will you pamper yourself before baby gets here? If you've already had your baby, did you pamper yourself before he/she arrived? If you did, how did you pamper yourself? If you didn't, what do you wish you would have done?

One member who replies to this post will win a CafeMom Coffee Mug.

My boyfriend and I plan on taking a weekend getaway to the casino and shopping one last time before baby gets here. We'll be staying in a hotel we got for free from switching our electric.

I probably won't because I already have one kid to take care of. Last pregnancy we did go on a babymoon to Frankenmuth MI. It was a lot of fun and family friendly too. I don't regret the babymoon, and I don't think I'll regret putting it aside this time. :-)

Hmmm, I probably wont pamper myself before baby arrives. My priority is taking care of my children and my home.  I already have an almost 3 year old and a 1-1/2 year old, my schedule is pretty full. Lol. If I had time and extra money for something though, I would love to get a haircut and mani/pedi before baby came though.

Perhaps a pregnancy massage. I have a friend who is a masseuse, and am hoping to take advantage of her talents before the baby comes.

I dont really get time alone. I'm a SAHM so I'm always with DD and I don't feel right pawning her off on someone just so I can get my nails done. She either goes with me so we both get pampered. Or I don't really go. If I'm lucky DH will be in a good mood and he will keep her for an hour, I don't do much for myself.
