--Go to the gas station and buy about 10 rolls of those travel Tums packs and stick them EVERYWHERE. Purse, glove box, your SOs car, etc. The heartburn is killer when there is a baby pushing your stomach up to your ears.
--Since we are all "lucky" enough to be pregnant during the summer, stock up on sundresses and flip flops. They will be your best friend when you can't see your feet and it's a chore to get dressed/undressed.
--If you have a recliner in your house, sleep in it. I slept in our recliner for the last 6-8 weeks of being pregnant with the twins. It was the only way I could get any rest.
--Nap. Often and proudly.
--Avoid mirrors for anything beyond basic hygiene. You will not enjoy the way that you look for these last few months. It's okay - we're all in the same boat.
--Stay as hydrated as possible. Edema is awful.
--Don't EVER pass gas while squatting/bending down. You will end up with more than you bargained for....right in your underwear.
--Even though this all sounds awful, enjoy these last couple of months of relative peace and quiet!
Thank you, *sharon*, for my siggy!
