*Don’t eat lunch meat, soft serve ice cream or anything else you once enjoyed.
*Always carry a snack – pregnancy hunger knows no bounds.
*Invest in comfortable shoes – your feet will thank you.
*Sometimes you’re going to flip out on people (mainly your husband) for no apparent reason. Learn how to recognize those pregnancy hormones before they start going crazy.
*Naps are the best thing ever.
*Wiggly baby movements do actually feel a little like a goldfish…just like I thought.
And last weekend I learned “Pregnancy Lesson #327″ while doing some holiday shopping.
Read more about it after the jump!
“Being almost 9 months pregnant and attempting to do Christmas shopping at the mall is quite possibly the worst idea ever.”
I’ll give you a basic synopsis: not enough eating, too much walking, swollen feet, crowded spaces that my belly wouldn’t fit through, indecisiveness and walking out of countless stores simply because the stress was just too overwhelming.
Usually we DIY out Christmas gifts, but this year I thought shopping would be the easier route to take. Well, after about six hours of roaming around the mall I realized that doing DIY projects from the comfort of my own couch while watching HGTV sounded much nicer. I guess you live and learn. Thankfully I had my mom with me for moral support – pretty sure I wouldn’t have been able to complete all my holiday purchases without her help.
Have you done your holiday shopping yet?
