9 Things To Do In 9 Months of Pregnancy
A woman becomes pregnant for the first time she thinks “Shit, what should I do?” This is an easy to-do list of things that should happen to start from conception until child birth. These are 9 things To Do In 9 Months.
Month 1: Spend More Time With Your Partner. The fetus is growing inside you, it becomes more important to work on the relationship of the person that help you create the baby. Energy levels are sure to drop; find activities that you both enjoy and do not take a lot of energy.
Month 2: Sleep! No one told me it is exhausting to create a human. New-mommies expect to have months until exhaustion hits or morning sickness similar to what is shown on TV. Do not feel guilty about the dishes piling up or other people that lack sympathy for your condition.
Month 3: Find Adequate Child Care. This is huge! Many great day care facilities have wait lists. If you do not plan on going back to work; find out who you can depend on for a baby-sitter.
Month 4: Brush Your Teeth. This one sounds crazy. Bleeding gums is common to experience in pregnancy. I thought instead of a stork, I would see a tooth fairy. The hormones that are filling your system make tooth loss possible. However much you already brush your teeth; double that!
Month 5: Buy Maternity Clothes. Life will feel so much better. These are clothes you can plan on wearing for awhile after giving birth. Still wearing my maternity jeans, two months after the fact. Invest in yourself.
Month 6: Go on a Baby-moon. It the perfect time to do something special with your partner. Morning sickness has become a thing of the past. Energy levels will not fully return until after giving birth. Give yourself plenty of breaks in the trip. For me, New York City was a great choice. You can find a post on this website called “Cheap Ways To Travel: Baby-Moon In New York City“
Month 7: Do Kegals. Exercise is always good to do through out pregnancy. Doing kegals will strengthen the pelvis floor. Kegal exercises will prevent According to Heidi Murkoff from What To Expect: One year
“Urinary incontinence, promotes healing, prevent or treat urinary and fecal incontinence, and ease hemorrhoids.”
Great thing about doing kegals is that they can be done anywhere without anyone noticing. It also makes sexy time with your partner better 🙂
Month 8: Start A Blog. After having a baby that forth trimester can be a lonely one. No one (expect grandparents) will care about the color of your child’s poop. Blogging is a lovely way to document the experience and keep those who wanted to be in “the know” updated. See the posts “Top 5 Free Programs To Help You Make Money” Your purpose does not have to making money, this post just gives a place to start in creating a blog.
Month 9: Pregnancy Belly Caste: This was one of the highlights of being pregnant. This one was done two days before giving birth. I was big and beautiful. It is rather inexpensive to do and it is an activity to be done with your partner. Be sure to be in a place that creative messes are allowed 🙂
Keep everything simple with pregnancy, I did not add the common sense things to the list. Those are things that seem quite obvious. Be sure to enjoy this time of life; it goes by fast. This is a list to start your 9 things to do in 9 months of pregnancy.
