Treat Yourself

Get a Facial

"I've been getting facials every 6 weeks," says Kristin.

It's not pure luxury—anything you can do to relieve stress is good for you and your baby (within reason: no smoking, of course!). Even better if you get a prenatal massage to relieve those aches and pains.

Light a candle (Kristin suggests Rose by Diptique). Relish pregnancy-safe essential oils, share an indulgent meal with your partner, eat some chocolate. Anything that helps you get to your healthy, happy place.
