Making the most of remaining time before baby...

I went to the doctor today and I have confirmation that I'm pregnant. How can I make the most out of the remaining ~32 weeks for me, my husband, and my new child?

I'm having our first, very planned, very wanted child. Still, I didn't think I'd be able to get knocked up this easily and it's hit me pretty hard that our lives are going to be completely different in just a few months. I want to squeeze every moment possible out of the remaning months of my (for now) uncomplicated life. I want to do fun things that will be harder in the future and things that will be special for the baby once it arrives. I feel great and I'm up for anything that is pregnant lady kosher (i.e. no roller coasters or cocaine binges).
Right now, we're planning a big overseas trip at the end of summer, going to lots of movies, eating at nice restaurants, and exercising lots. We're saving money for junior, and I'm working on a book of memories and a baby blanket.
So, parents, what do you miss most? Friends of parents, what do you wish your friends could still do with you? People with babies, and former babies, what are the best things a couple can do to prepare for a child?
I'm in SW PA, USA.
This is anonymous just because I'm still in my first trimester. After I'm out of the danger zone I will start high-fiving everyone.
