What do you regret doing/not doing while pregnant?

So, when we were TTC, I had all these marvelous ideas in mind that I would definitely do, you know the ones- miles on the elliptical, healthy dinners every night, constant kegels. Now that I'm 24 weeks along, and finding it hard just to fit a fresh vegetable into my daily routine, it got me wondering - how much will I regret not doing??

What are the things you really wish you would've done (or not done) while you were pregnant?

My first pregnancy? Take ALL THE NAPS! Because I don't think I have slept more than 3 hours in a row since I had my first.

Yes, nap, definitely. I'm currently pregnant with my fourth, and naps rarely happen. I did just discover this pregnancy that seltzer water is a miracle worker for my nausea. I wish I'd known that with the other three!

Yep. There are no other big ones for me.

Got more prenatal massages and went to the movies more often.

Taking baths! I am usually not a huge bath person but it was soooooo relaxing my last pregnancy. Now that baby is here that is not happening and I really miss it.

My last 2 pregnancies I made sure I did yoga! It helped with my breathing and positioning for my vba2c's.

First pregnancy? Researched. I hate how I was pushed into the whole induction, meds, early epi, lead to c/s ordeal. I'd be more aware if I could go back.

Also naps, massages, outings, etc and do tons of pictures of belly/ baby. I love all the fun parts- like getting a henna tattoo or doing the blessings party, etc.

Wow, I'm surprise that the general consensus seems to be napping! I'm already getting frustrated with myself when I fall asleep or sleep too much and there are things to be done. Maybe I need to change my attitude!

Naps, massages and baths for sure. And pictures. I felt so fat I refused to let anyone take a pic of me. Right at the end my mom told me I was going to regret it so one morning before church I let hubby snap one quick pic. It's the only one I have of my whole pregnancy. Other than that, I did eat really healthy with my first (my second so far is a whole nother ball game but I'm sure it will be better once I feel like eating and can keep it down). I was pretty active with my first too, so no regrets like that.
