It's easy to get lost in all of the excitement of a new pregnancy; Between the doctor's visits, the announcements, and the preparations for baby's arrival, it would be a shame to miss out on all of the simple pleasures of pregnancy.

This is such a brief snapshot of your life; One that deserves to be remembered and treasured for years to come. Here are some ideas to help you enjoy your pregnancy for the miraculous event that it is.

Time for Reflection

Pregnancy in our modern day culture often means an overload of information and advice. Don't make the mistake of spending all of your time reading, studying, and worrying about your pregnancy. Take time away from all of the books, articles, and well-meaning friends and family members to spend some time in reflection.

Here are some ideas of what to do during this time:

Getting to Know Your Baby

Did you know that you can spend time with your baby even before he or she is born? It's therapeutic for you and some professionals believe that it's good for your baby as well. There are lots of things that you can do to spend time with your little one:

Connect With Your Spouse

Don't forget the special someone who helped create this little life! Use this time to connect with your spouse and also to help your spouse connect with your baby. Encourage him to get to know your baby, feel kicks, and listen to noises coming from your belly. Share your dreams and goals with each other, and together you can make plans for baby's arrival.

Now is the best time to spend time together and strengthen your bond as a couple, before the sleepless nights and demands of a newborn.

It's these intimate little moments that you will cherish most when looking back upon your time of pregnancy. You'll be able to share these simple pleasures with your child when they are older, recalling your bond together even before they were born.
