Sarah Drew has dinner with a group of moms every other Wednesday night. "And it's a standing date, so unless I'm shooting, it's happening," says Drew. "It's our time to vent, cry and hold each other up. The husbands take the kids, and then the husbands get to go out together on Thursdays."

Drew's husband gave her a membership to a nearby theater: "So that's my chill time. I go see movies by myself in the middle of the day," she says. "Micah will go down for his nap, and then I'll be like, 'What's showing? OK, see ya, Peter!'"

Drew swims to exericse and to relax. "First I play in the pool with Micah, and then he likes to get wrapped up in a towel and watch me do laps," she says. "Lately, that's been feeling amazing. It takes all the weight off your belly."
