Get a Massage

Get a little hands-on stress relief and treat yourself to a prenatal massage. (After dealing with bouts of morning sickness, hormone-driven mood swings and all that weight gain, you so deserve it!) A prenatal massage will ease your pregnancy discomforts (back pain, anyone?) and give you an hour to yourself to tune out and chill out. Massages can help even reduce stress hormones, according to the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami. So book one now -- it's worth the splurge.
