For Mental Fuzziness (also known as "Pregnancy Brain")

  • Special places for your most needed items (keys, shoes, purse, remote)

  • Lots of grace and humor, especially when you lock your keys in the car for the fifth time in one week

For Blue Moods and Fat Feelings:

  • Pictures of adorable, drooling babies to admire

  • The entire collection of The Three Stooges on video

  • Weekly manicures and pedicures; regularly scheduled facials and hair appointments
