things you should do when pregnantAre you pregnant? If you are then I urge you to pamper yourself like crazy. Especially if this is your first pregnancy.

Please take time to spend time with your amigas. Their love and support is so important. Not to mention that pregnancy is a great time to bond with them because the first few months after the baby comes you are not going to have time to spend with them. They need to know that they matter to you. It's like you are building up friendship brownie points and it's also great for you because being with good friends is awesome.

If you are in a relationship, make sure you go on dates with your love. Again, now is the time to do it because once the baby comes it might be a while before you get a chance to go out as a couple and being a couple is what got you in this situation in the first place.

If you are the kind of person that likes to see movies when they come out then go to the movie theater now while you can. I NEVER go to the movies anymore unless it's a movie made for kids.

If you can afford to pay someone to clean your home, do it! It's money well spent. If not, when someone asks you what they can do for you say, "Clean my home." Don't feel bad about it, you're not being lazy. For heavens sake you are making another human being let someone clean your home for you.

Your feet will grow, your feet will swell, your feet won't fit in regular shoes. Get some adorable flip flops and stick your puffy tamal looking pedicured (see previous slide) feet in them. And don't you dare feel self-conscious if they are swollen, it's just a part of being pregnant.
