I try not to tell other people how to live their lives (except when it comes to giving the early-aughts reboot of Battlestar Gallactica a try), but having been through one and a half pregnancies already in my life, I do feel equipped to offer some gentle suggestions for anyone who may be inclined to hear them. Of course, all pregnancies and all women are different, but if you’ll allow me to make some sweeping generalizations about the third trimester (hint: it’s hard), perhaps these suggestions for things pregnant women should do before the third trimester will resonate with you.
That’s not to say that any trimester can't be hard. In fact, it's a known fact any trimester can be pretty damn difficult. This fact is truer than true, on par with concrete facts like leggings are pants, elephants are the best animals, and Paul Rudd never ages. Kidding, I’m only kidding.
