I don’t know about you, but when I was pregnant I spent a LOT of time on the couch. My hip pain made it very difficult to get comfortable enough to sleep in any position. And then there was that fun time I ended up with a bad cold at 32 weeks pregnant.
I literally did not sleep more than about 2 hours in that whole week.
What did I do? Well, a mix of things.
- Bubbleshooter (yes… I played that game for HOURS. But I beat it… so… yeah… go me!)
- Watch TV and MOVIES
Now when you’re pregnant, even if your taste usually runs more to Alien and Lord of the Rings like me, you might find it hard to enjoy that kind of movie. My hormones were pushing me more in the direction of movies involving pregnancy and babies. Totally not my normal fare at all…
Here’s a choice selection for your next TV sesh:
This is a fascinating documentary telling the story of conception at a million times the size. You’ll have a new appreciation for the process let me tell you!
This is a really cool series that deep dives into the lives of a dozen or so kids every two years from 1 year old. They do some simple psychological tests to and talk about how the kids are raised and what’s going on in their family lives. Fascinating!
36. Bringing Up Baby
Three different methods for raising babies are put to the test in this documentary, ranging from attachment parenting to the other extreme. If you haven’t given much thought to life after your baby is born, this one’s worth watching.
