Hang in there, kid, you’re doing great!

Pregnancy may be taking its toll by now. Some of you are saying, “What are you talking about? I feel great!” and some of you are saying, “Starting to take its toll?! If I felt better and could move a little faster, I’d garrote you with the drawstring on my maternity pants.”

Whether you feel great, like shit, or perhaps a bit of both at times, I found there were some great things about being pregnant. I think my favorite was not having to suck it in, but you can check out the whole list of 10 Great Things About Being Pregnant here.

Plus, your baby is around two pounds right now, can open and close his/her eyes, and has hearing that’s good enough to hear you ordering its body weight in fries. Your baby looks pretty much like a baby now – shark baby is long gone – but there’s still a fair amount of work going on under the hood with its internal organs.

This week's to do:

  • Free breast pump. Most insurance companies will cover a breast pump and there are companies that handle all the paperwork for you (it's not a scam). Check out this post on getting a Free Breast Pump and see what you qualify for. You'll need your insurance number – sorry, I know that's a pain in the ass.
  • Set up a baby registry. Even if it's just to get the free welcome box and the registry discount, it's worth making one. Here's a post on the Best Baby Registries and the Best Places to Score Freebies With No Big Catch.
