The last few weeks of pregnancy can feel as long as the whole pregnancy combined. Your body aches, swells and feels like nothing more than a human incubator. The haze of the in-between life as it is now, and how it will be is all consuming. Here are some ways to spend the last days before you give birth.
1.Shop (online) for your postpartum care
The nursery is ready, and everything is perfect for your babe on the way. But what about you? It’s the part of bringing a baby in to the world that not one wants to talk about. The post part recovery can be painful and exhausting. Having the items you need to stay comfortable is essential to your healing process.
2.Make your labor playlist
Staying calm while you are dealing with the pain of contractions is easier said than done. Create a playlist that helps you feel calm and relaxed during your labor.
3.Listen to podcasts or read a book
When your little one is here you won’t be popping in headphones and diving in to your favorite podcasts. You will be trying to eat, shower or sleep… wait, what is sleep? Try to relax and enjoy this time in between. And the much easier said than done— relax, and take in this special time of life, that is in transition.
