Hey there everyone,
Wasn't sure where to post this one so apologies if it is in the wrong spot.
So I am due in 6 days. Very excited and just cannot wait to meet my baby (in between slight panic and sh!t scaredness).
The nursery is ready, I have read and re-read every baby book known to man, washed everything into oblivion, cooked and cleaned.
I am calling on all your experience, what do you wish you had of spent your last days as a non parent doing? What are the things that are near impossible to do with a baby that I should be doing in these final days?
Things like going to the movies, going to my favourite restaurant, walking aimlessly around the supermarket and shops, having a nice long bath, sleeping in (those of you who have seen my other post will have a laugh at that one).
I get that you can still have a life after having a baby, just want to know what you wished you had of done in the last few days before becoming a Mummy or Daddy.

The night before my induction we went out to a fancy restaurant and made the most of our last date night for a while. It was perfect
All the best for the next couple of weeks xxx

Sleep my dear, sleep
And when you feel like you can't sleep anymore, go back to bed

All of those things I found easy to do with a newborn.
I would spend a whole day in my pjs and read whatever book I wanted to if I was pregnant with no kids yet.
I'd also get my hair done, go out to dinner and a movie with DF.
And I'd have fun baking and cooking stuff to freeze. (I didn't do that before my first)

I agree with sleep, sleep and more sleep. If you have frozen meals, everything is washed and you have set up your nursery there isn't much more preparation you can do really... Take it east, rest. Have a soak in the bath each night. Watch some of your favorite tv shows... Ok this is just becoming a list of 'things I wish I had time for' lol. Good luck on the arrival of bub

I would have just spent more time by myself - doing anything and nothing at all. Getting in the car without another person, leaving the house without enough supplies for a year - yes, you can still have a life after baby, but it is nice to enjoy the last few moments of total independence and guilt free selfishness

I wish I'd chilled more, I worked right up to my due date. I was 10 days over, so unless you are being induced in 6 days, you may have more time than you think
You've done all your preparing so just enjoy yourself
