However, remember - good things do actually come to those who wait. So before you tick yet another day off your calendar, why not try some of the following fun suggestions to make the wait all the more enjoyable?

Confessions of a shop-a-holic: If you are like any other woman out there, you rarely need an excuse to shop.

The great thing about your pregnancy is that it offers you just that – another reason to hit the stores and give your credit card a healthy work out. Pace out your shopping sprees over the next few months and allow yourself time to indulge in goodies for your baby and yourself. Stock up on baby essentials such as clothes and toiletries and don't forget to pamper yourself with make-up, perfume, smart new maternity clothes, and comfortable shoes.

New beginnings: Let's face it. After your baby is born, things are never going to be the same again. You are never going to be the same again! As you witness your body changing in front of your eyes, don't fight it. Instead go with the flow and learn to make the most with what you have. Get a haircut, indulge in a manicure or pedicure or go the whole hog and book yourself into a day spa. After a lovely day of relaxation and peace, you are bound to be ready to face the world anew.

A picture speaks a thousand words: Book a professional photo shoot for you and your partner. Images of yourself when you are pregnant make a lovely keepsake to share with your baby as he or she grows up. Alternatively, document your pregnancy with photographs and add them to your journal for long lasting memories.

All your bags are packed: Once you are over the first three months of your pregnancy, it is generally considered safe to travel. Make the most of this time with your partner and escape on your very own ‘babymoon.' Many couples swear that taking this one last vacation before the baby arrives is an excellent way to rediscover your partner and reignite that spark in your relationship. If you can't get away, make sure you at least schedule regular date nights out before the little one comes along.
