    Default How to get through last month!

    Hi Ladies so I am 36 weeks yesterday.
    My big question is how did you get through the last month?
    I am physically feeling ok. A bit sore here and there a bit tired. And need to pee a lot. But I have just started Maternity leave from work and am worried about becoming very bored in the 4 week wait till bub arrives?
    I am hoping bub arrives early as I feel 4 weeks is going to be torture. I feel very restless and stressed in waiting out the last 4 weeks.
    Does any one have any ideas on coping with this last month?

    I cooked/baked to freeze food for the first few weeks - organising that took a few days.

    I went out a bit. At least a leisurely shop trip once a week.

    I decluttered/spring cleaned my clothes.

    I kept repeating, "You chose to do this" over and over. Didn't help much lol

    I kept busy prepping the nursery, buying clothing and nappies/wipes, getting a capsule, seeing friends and family etc.
    Honestly the last year has been more boring than that last month.

    I did this with my first. I had a freezer meal planned to cook each day. Took the dog for a walk every morning. Had a lot of naps. I was getting a bit bored 2 weeks in then went into labour at 37 weeks!
    See if you can grab some cheeky lunch/breakfast dates with your partner. It's never the same trying to feed yourself while controlling a child in a public place

    I made sure l had planned something every day including lunches with working friends or DH. eg
    Mon - movies
    Tue - clean out pantry
    Wed - lunch with friend
    Thurs - clean out linen cupboard
    Friday - coffee and then a walk

    And then I'd nap.
