Posted on 01. Jan, 2012 by in Birth, Doctor's Visits, Labor & Delivery, Pregnancy Education

Your baby is almost here, but first you have to get through the final month of pregnancy. Your baby will be putting on some weight this last month and you’ll be feeling it.

Therefore it’s best to take this last month easier than you have been and put the final touches on getting ready for baby’s arrival.

Here’s some tips to help get through that last month.

Pamper yourself

Soon you’ll be covered in spit-up and changing more diapers than you can count. Take some time for yourself now – book a hair appointment, get a manicure and pedicure, and have a few romantic date nights with your partner.

You’ll love the attention at the salons and you’ll appreciate feeling like a woman at the end of the day. And your partner will love the passion that you both are reigniting before the baby comes.

Listen to your body

If you’re tired, take a nap. If you’re hungry, then eat. The ninth month of pregnancy is no time to try and be the boss of yourself, it’s the baby’s time.

They start calling the shots even before they’re born, everything from guessing their due date to wondering how your labor will go, your child is in charge during the ninth month.

And listening to your body is the healthiest way to work together with your baby to make this last month as easy peasy as possible.

Pack your baby bag and talk to your doctor

The ninth month of pregnancy is the perfect time to pack your hospital bag, get in any last minute birth plan changes, and for talking over any uncertainties with your doctor. 

  • Your last month of pregnancy will go by fast, especially with the feeling of uncertainty hanging over you by having to guess and be in constant anticipation when your baby will be making their debut into the world.
  • Center yourself, tie up any loose ends, and try to be as prepared as you can be. Once your baby is born, everything else will fall into place.
