When I first found out that I was pregnant I had all these plans....including the items above...I always thought I still had time to do the above...anyway, dd is 12 weeks and although I did stick to my main plan...stop smoking/eat healthier/get sleep etc I wish I had went swimming to try to keep trim, I wish I used bio-oil on my tummy to try to get rid of stretch marks and also I wish I visited dentist because of my bleeding gums.
I think I have suffered consequences of not doing the above...too boring to go into though.
Is there anything that you wished you had done during your first pregnancy?
Just a thread for random chit chat really - perhaps people may take advice from this too.
I wish I'd had sex, all the time, every day! Lol! It's the very last thing I want to do these days!
I wish I would have spent the whole time going out to dinner and the cinema.
Nothing prepares you for just how much things change when you have a baby. He's 4 months old and I love him to death, but I'm lucky if I get to shower these days never mind go to the movies with my boyfriend, shopping with gf's and going to lunch with my mother.
What I wish NOW is that I was more motivated in losing the baby weight. Someone once told me if you've not lost it in 6 months, you never will! Eeeek! Which means I only have 2 months left to lose it all!
Op, it's not too late to do any of the things you say above.
Bio oil used now will help heal the stretch marks. Get your partner or someone else (is there a creche?) to mind the baby while you go swimming, even if just once a week will help you feel better. there may also be a baby swimming group you can go to with the lo. If you haven't already been to the dentist get it sorted, free dental treatment for you until lo is one.
Personally I find it really hard when pg to find the energy to go out in the evenings, unless I'd rested in the daytimes. people keep telling me to make the most of it, go to cinema etc but all I want to do is crash on the sofa and be in bed by ten! as for sex - forget it!
Just do what you feel like at the time when you are pg.It's probably a good time to have a lazy beach holiday, as next year you may not get a lot of uninterrupted lounger time. city breaks involving lots of walking may not appeal.
