I am not a huge fan of being pregnant, but let me be clear when I say that I haaaaated the third trimester. It’s kind of like the last semester of school when you’re a senior. You just can’t TAKE sitting in your desk and listening to your stupid teacher for one more GD second when you know that you are about to taste sweet, sweet freedom. And by freedom, I mean an unruly baby who is going to keep you up all night with torturous giggles, moans, squeaks, and wails.

The third trimester of pregnancy is a mother of a drag, pun intended. I was so fatigued at that time that I felt like glue was running through my veins. I also could not stand waiting for the potential (over)due date that came and went. Just give me the baby, and let me get on with it already!!! But I digress.

If any of this rings true for you, let me encourage you by saying that it will go by faster than you think. But that won’t do you any good when you’re pulling your hair out for the next few weeks. Here are 15 things you can do to make the third trimester slightly less unbearable:

1. Pretend that you aren’t pregnant.
