1. Ease fatigue
• Take a half-hour nap each day. As you slumber, make sure your feet are raised higher than your heart; that helps take pressure off your legs. Don’t feel guilty about needing to rest. Building a baby is hard work.
• Get some exercise every day, as long as your doctor says it’s okay. Aerobic activity, such as walking or swimming, gives you more energy. And labour and delivery will be easier if you’ve been exercising regularly.
