    Lavii,
    So you are in final weeks and about to enter Climax I would say.
    The main reason being bored, you wanted to spend time.
    1.Go for shopping and buy maternity stuff lke feeding nighties,bras etc....and baby items.
    2. Sleep,sleep, Sleep
    3. Go somewhere to spend quality time with your DH because these moments you wont get anytime in future, because you have to take care of baby soon.
    4. Go to temple and pray God for a smooth delivery.
    5. Eat your favourite foods like ice creams,biriyanis,juices,candies etc because soon after delivery it will be tough to get your favourites
    6. Try to talk to your old friends, soon you dont get time for yourself...so no question of friends.
    7. Go to any relatives's house if possible any infant being there and see the mother's daily routine.
    8. Finally, browse IL.

    So you have somany options but you just have few days to complete all these.

    Lavi, good luck with delivery. I had been following a few threads of yours and i sincerely pray to God that the delivery is smooth.

    Coming to being bored, I gifted my SIL Chicken Soup for the Soul for mothers soul. She is loving that book. perhaps you can try to get that book?

    How about some movies? I have seen Ravan recently and liked it.

    Oh your husband is in evening shift? Mine too! I hate evening shifts :bonk. We cannot even watch movies with right volume for the fear of disturbing them.

    Did you ever try to make a family tree? Its time consuming and a good time pass. You can show your son/daughter when they grow up and really, its a nice time pass trying to gather information about family. See if you can do that...

    Apart from that, like Priya Mommy said, sleep :).

    Dear Lavi

    Best wishes for safe delivery. I also second to what Priya Mommy has written. Do some light work also so that you will have safe delivery. Pray to God . Read some spiritual books.

    May God bless you

    love
    viji

    Lavii,

    I hear you. I felt the 36 weeks of pregnancy went super fast as compared to the last 4 weeks.. ! :) It looked like 4 decades.

    Besides what Hema ( Priya_mommy ) has so beautifully written, also visit some friends.
    Write a baby journal.. in which you note down the first moments of how you felt when you came to know you pregnant.. What were your expectations from hubby, did he fulfil all that. The first movements, your cravings and everything you want to let your LO know.

    Make a book off it later with his / her photographs. Collect yours and your hubby's childhood snaps. You can add it to the album of your baby book.

    Have a nice hair cut
    Get manicure and pedicure done.
    Go to some favourite baby store with hubby and choose few clothes for your LO. Ask hubby to get them after the baby is born.
    The best thing, I did during the last few weeks of pregnancy before my parents came, was watching lotts of comedy movies and laughed till I cried and my Abhishek started to kick hard to stop ! :)
