I’m 29 weeks and some change.

I get monthly manis and pedis. I go to a shop that I’ve been going to for years and because I’m pregant my usual girl takes extra care when doing my services.

I also hang out with my friends. I usually will go over to my friend’s house so I can get out of the house. They often have barbeques so there are sometimes other people there when I go. Or if it’s just us we hang out.

I also like doing crafts so that keeps my mind busy and off of the discomforts I’m feeling.

And I’m going to get my first prenatal massage soon.

DH and I went mini putting last night. I was tired by the end but it was worth it

I understand how you feel!

Get out of the house while it’s still simple to do so! At the end of my first pregnancy, we would take day trips to the zoo or museums, so I would get to walk but resting areas were also very accessible if needed.

Go see a show; theatre or music.. Doesn’t have to be expensive, just to discover new things and get your mind off the discomforts.

I second checking if you can swim with a tank top and bikini bottoms… That way you don’t spend on maternity bathing suits but you still get to swim, which is great at this point of pregnancy.

Prenatal yoga. Fun, relaxing exercise.

@mommytobee:  That is another good one- we go to the zoo too.  It is free and nice to walk around.

I really do feel you OP!  I keep reading this thread for myself too 🙂  Walking in the park every day with DH has been nice.  I walk so slowly now…  I still feel like I have a million things I have to do to get ready for baby, but have a hard time doing them when DH is at work and I dont feel good :/

@marjojo:  I hear you. I feel basically the exact same way. I’m about 35.5 weeks, so not quite as far along as you, but…pretty much everything I used to enjoy is difficult now. 

I think my main “fun” activity now is going for slow walks. It can be kind of painful sometimes, but I like getting out, and it’s more comfortable than sitting for long periods. If I’m alone, I’ll listen to an audiobook for entertainment.

I wish I had more suggestions. I’m going to keep checking this thread for ideas for myself. Hang in there.

Ok so I know this may sound crazy but if you wear a backpack it may aid in centering your center of gravity and the pull on your back…. I heard this once in a physics class many years ago. Never been pregnant so I havent tried it myself.
