Find a Hobby
Instead of focusing on when you are go into labor, try to relax and enjoy those final days of pregnancy. After it is over, you will miss those tiny kicks, punches, rolls, and jabs. The best way to help pass the time is to find a hobby that you enjoy such as: crocheting, knitting, making hair bows, scrap booking, ect These project will keep you busy and make you feel that you have accomplished something.
Read a Good Book
Snuggle up in bed or on the couch with a good book. I know that you are probably thinking that I am crazy for suggesting this since most of you are uncomfortable. However, once baby comes you won’t be reading very many books.
Catch Up on Sleep
Sleep as much as possible, so that you are well rested for the big day. Once labor begins, you could be in labor for a few hours or days, so it is best to get as much rest as you can. During early labor, try to sleep or rest in between contractions while you have the chance. After you arrive to the hospital, the nurses and doctors usually come in several times to check on you, making it hard to get much rest
