RE: Naps.....for ME!!!
I regret NOT taking more time off before my baby was born. It would have been nice to go into the whole thing rested. My body was screaming at me to stop, and I just didn't (couldn't?) listen. Then I had an unbelievably difficult labor. I don't know if the two were related, but I do know I will never again push so hard when I'm very, very pregnant. Your body is working really hard. I remember reading that the body of a pregnant woman at rest is working as hard as the body of a not-pregnant woman climbing a mountain. That stuck with me. If your deepest sense is saying stop, think about how you can honor that.
