  • Have your hair cut, colored or styled. (Make an appointment for your due date so you'll have something pleasant to do — and something to show for it — if your baby shows no signs of appearing.)
  • Treat yourself to a manicure, pedicure, facial, makeover or massage. (Be sure your massage therapist is experienced with prenatal massage.)
  • Go out for dinner with your partner or a close friend.
  • Plan a ceremony to celebrate your baby's birth.
  • Be the guest of honor at a baby shower.
  • Go shopping.
  • Work on handicrafts for your baby.
  • Have friends in for a visit.
  • Take in a movie, concert or play. (Sit in an aisle seat toward the back.)
  • Stage your own film festival with rented videos or DVDs.
  • Visit your local art museum or gallery. (It may be a while before you get another opportunity.)
  • Read those new novels now, while you have the chance!
  • Enjoy a day trip or an overnight or weekend getaway with your partner.

    Rated 0 out of 5 by My twin pregnancy kept me off my feet for more than 2-5 minute intervals towards the end. I couldn't put my shoes on or do anything for long. My favorite chair was an exercise ball. As mentioned, pedicures are a must do especially, towards the end, plus when you are recovering in the hospital your toes will be pretty for all those pictures & visitors. You won't have time to paint your nails after baby arrives! :) December 17, 2014
