You’re almost there!! Congratulations!! Your baby is coming in few days!
Probably you feel tired, you can’t sleep a lot during the night, you feel heavy and you cannot move comfortably. I know it can be exhausting (I’ve been there 3 times!) but don’t worry! You will be with your baby in few days, so enjoy your lasts days as a pregnant lady!
Well, as a doula I’ve been with women in your situation a lot times, so there is a list with everything I recommend them.
Rest a lot, anyway you feel tired! So take a nap, enjoy of long moments of doing nothing in front of the TV or read a book… You will feel good and you never know when you go into labour.
PREPARE YOUR FRIDGE
I you feel good, it is time to cook! Prepare healthy and good food for the postpartum and freeze it, so when your baby is here and you will be really busy with her you will have your food ready!
LISTEN YOUR NESTING INSTINCT
It will feel so good to come back home with the baby into a tidy home.
Furthermore, exercise can induce labor, so… listen to your nesting instinct!
TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF
As your baby is going to be here soon probably you will not have a lot of time to visit your hairdresser or to have a good massage! So the time is now!
A baby it is not the end of a relationship, rather it is a new beginning: during few months you will not have a lot of time to enjoy each other, for example before the baby is here you may want to have a last dinner as a couple.
And of course, prepare the bags you will need for the hospital!
