well, it's so different for everyone, but for me, following my body's want of movement/stretching and my body's want of rest has really helped the adjustment. but best for me, or i should say, the most efficient for me has been bodywork/energy work. even though it seems to make more room in my body for the baby and i swear my belly's bigger after a treatment, i feel more able to accommodate the growth. oh, and trips to the hot springs up the road don't hurt! but how many people are lucky enough to have close access to that. how about hot baths and strawberries and lavender/chamomile tea.
i think just all the extra pampering i can fit into my uber practical lifestyle helps me remember to soften the space for the babe...that it's not all building materials and tools, and earth moving.
pamper yourself if even just in your mind! and remember it'll all be over sooo soon, maybe too soon.
