Enjoy these New Year’s Resolutions for pregnant woman and feel free to add your own!
I will take my prenatal vitamin every day. I will not forget.
I will enjoy that single bowl of Rocky Road ice cream.
I will maintain good posture.
I will do my kegels every day.
I will take the epidural if I need it and not feel guilty.
I will quit smoking, for good.
I will go to bed early and take naps often, because I can.
I will not be ashamed of my pregnant body.
I will exercise lightly.
I will drink 8-10 glasses of water a day for my baby.
I will not be afraid to ask my doctor anything, even if it is embarrassing. (Everything concerning pregnancy is a little embarrassing.)
I will not bite people’s head off when they touch my belly without asking.
I will rock that maternity support belt and enjoy the comfort it provides without any apologies.
I will eat a healthy, balanced diet.
I will remember to moisturize my belly every night. (Even if it doesn’t prevent all stretch marks, it will be extra soft for when your hubby waits for the baby to kick.)
I will take a seat when offered.
I will be on time for all my prenatal appointments.
I will pack my hospital bag ahead of time.
I will faithfully attend all of my childbirth classes and do the homework.
I will take at least one new “belly shot” each month for my friends and family.
I will start my birth announcements ahead of time and mail them out before my baby is six months old.
I will take friends and family’s advice with a grain of salt and a smile.
I will make time for my husband while I still can.
I will try to think of something other than pregnancy to talk about on my lunch dates.
