Mother’s Health During Pregnancy Week 38Brought to you by
Preparing for the Big Day… So, your bags are packed, you probably feel huge, and want to get this show on the road. Many women find it helpful to mentally rehearse for the big day. You may want to set aside some time to review your breathing and relaxation techniques to help you manage the pain of labor.
Tired of rehearsing? Try doing something to distract you, like making some mix CD's! Many hospitals allow you to listen to your own music during labor. There's no way to tell how long your labor is going to be and if you're there for 6 , 12, or 20 hours, chances are you don't want to listen to the same CD on repeat! Load up your MP3 player, or burn some CD's. It's a great way to pass the time and take your mind off backaches, tingles in your legs, and intensifying contractions.
