Don't be surprised if you have some strange dreams during that nap of yours. Pregnancy wreaks as much havoc with your brain as with your body. Read up on the dreams of pregnant women to gain insight into just what yours might mean.
If you aren't a big fan of napping, consider scheduling a restorative massage or arranging an afternoon at your local day spa. There you'll find lots of ways to pamper yourself; we advise you try them all!
Can't find time even for that? Then, at the very least, pamper yourself with special skin creams. Pregnancy can take its toll on your skin, so keep it well nourished.
Pick a Name—But Not Just Any Name!
Research shows what parents have suspected all along. That is, the name you choose for your child matters—a lot.
According to psychologist Dr. Albert Mehrabian, there is a clear correlation between a person's name and how others treat that person. Just because a name has a positive personal association for you does not necessarily mean that others will share the association.
When choosing that perfect baby name, it's in a parent's best interest (not to mention the child's!) to think not only how the name will play in the immediate family, but also to consider the impression it will make from the sandbox all the way to the executive suite.
Play with different names, from the classic to the creative, and then create a short list of your favorites. Stumped as to where to begin? Our Baby Names Finder will help!
