It's one of these days again when i feel totally bored with my pregnancy. I often ask myself if there's something wrong with me. I looked up the internet to find articles regarding boredom at pregnancy and the reasons why it happens and I found the answers to my query. It says " Many women become tired of being pregnant during the third trimester, and some even earlier. What's exciting and new during the first few weeks and months of pregnancy can become pretty tedious by the sixth or seventh month."
There's nothing particularly thrilling about having to roll out of bed sideways, groan everytime i stand up and go to the comfort room about 20 times a day or more and even having to wake up at wee hours of the night just to pee. These are just but some reasons why it is enough to wipe the rosy glow from even the most excited mom-to-be. According to the articles i've read, they suggested that it's time for me to enjoy the last few months of pre-baby freedom because during the months (and years!) after my baby is born, time for myself will be a precious commodity. The article suggested a few ideas on how to savor the time left before the baby comes out.
• Make dates with friends. Enjoy a good in-depth chat with your best friend over lunch or coffee.
• Streamline your space. Clean out your files, sift through the junk in the kitchen drawer, or put those boxed-up prints in the loft into photo albums. There's plenty of organising you can do around the house that won't strain you physically, and once you're in mummy-mode you'll be grateful for the reduced clutter.
• Pamper yourself. If you can possibly afford it, a pregnancy massage at a reputable spa is well worth the money. For a less expensive treat, have a soothing pedicure or facial instead.
• Set up time-savers. Make an appointment for a new, easy-to-manage haircut, collect takeaway menus from restaurants near your home, and set up an online bank account so that you can manage your finances easily.
• Connect with your partner. Enjoy some peaceful, romantic dinners together - whether you head out to a restaurant or snuggle up at home with comfort food - and focus on each other while you can.
• Indulge in some retail therapy. Treat yourself to a pretty new maternity bra or some elegant pumps to wear in late pregnancy.
• Do some exercise. Go for a gentle swim at your local pool and enjoy the sensation of being able to float! You'll burn some calories, will feel invigorated and it will help you to sleep better afterwards. If swimming isn't your thing, go for a stroll in the fresh air instead.
• Escape to another world. Tuck in to a nice big novel or rent a few DVDs that sweep you off your feet into another place or time.
Out of those ideas the article suggested, i should at least give it a try. I guess it will do me good and it will help me manage my boredom.
