Things I Am Learning During My Second Pregnancy

5) Make the Most of Your Pregnancy

40 weeks seems like a lifetime but it actually goes by very quickly, especially once you hit the half way mark. With that said, remember to enjoy this amazing time. Consider documenting your belly growth. On days when you don’t feel too pretty (there will be many lol), take some time to pamper yourself. You can do this by treating yourself to a massage, pedicure, or day at the beach to name a few activities.  Most importantly, if you have outside factors causing stress – remove them ASAP! It’s not healthy for you or baby. Some moms-to-be may find themselves in a situation where your family or the other parent is not as supportive as you’d like – don’t worry over it. Seek out close friends, other moms and local support groups who will provide you with the love and care that you need. You are never alone and you deserve to be nothing short of happy during this time.

Babies are a blessing no matter the situation, so be grateful for your gift and treat your body right.

By the way, I have a name picked out for my little one, but I’ll share that later :-)

Anyone else out there expecting? Are you also a second+ time mom? What other tips would you add?
