Is there anything you regret not doing in those Final weeks prior to the arrival of your first baby?

whether it's time out just you, you and hubby, pampering, planning more prep for birth etc?

Just out of interest smile

Sleeping when I felt like it.

Watching a whole TV programme in one go.

Being able to just 'pop out'

Definitely popping out! Even just to the garage! And sitting quietly in a cafe without having to worry about people waking DC up!

Anything involving the use of both hands.


Sort out those cupboards. Cut back/prune/plant out house and garden plants.

Keep a pen and pad handy to write a list of 'things to do' as it's much easier than keeping it all in an hormonally charged brain.

I finished work too late and ended up totally exahusted so I would say resting. A bit of self pampering and self indulgence are a good idea as soon you may feel like you have no time for yourself!

Sorting out my bikini wax in time blush And then being caught out again the second time round with a prem baby!
