Pregnancy: What I've Done in the past 30 some weeks

Well, here I am.  39 weeks..and ready.  I know it could be 7 days, or 14, but regardless I'm ready to meet this babe inside of me.  It's weird now feeling like somewhat of a ticking time bomb, and also unsure of when this whole labor thing will begin.  Similar to the Pregancy: What I Know Now post, I wanted to go through things I've done, and not done.  Not because I think you should follow these rules too, but so I'll remember what I did.  Countless Mom's have already told me, "wait...did I do that when I was pregnant?  I don't remember...I don't know."


  • Nordic Naturals Prenatal DHA- Because we don't eat that much fish
  • Rainbow Light Prenatals- Because my friend used them
  • 365 (whole foods) Probiotics- Refrigerated.  Because it helps with pregnancy symptoms and 'they' said it might help with kids not getting too many allergies
  • Yoga- mostly in the 1st and 2nd trimesters
  • Walks- lots of them
  • Water Aerobics/Swimming- didn't do tons of this but felt good when I did
  • no deli meet, unless heated in a grilled cheese
  • only cheese that is pasteurized
  • Red meat that's medium well- I'm ready for a medium steak
  • Lots of snacking
  • Only scrambled eggs.  I'm ready for over-easy eggs again.
  • No alchohol or soda or caffeine
  • Lots of Water
  • borrow borrow borrow
  • don't buy too much- you'll figure out what you need
  • garage sales and consignment shops are your friends
  • borrow as much as you can- especially things that the kiddos only use for a couple months
  • When you buy things from consignment shops and garage sales the Mom's there will tell you how smart you are for not dropping so much $$ on everything new
Other Details
  • Burt's Bees Belly Balm -Got it as a gift and used it when I remembered.  I hear stretch marks can still show up later...
  • Burt's Bees Foot Lotion- another gift and amazing.  Foot massages work out knots which mean no charlie horses for me in the middle of the night.
