I'm on maternity leave now, at 32 weeks, since my job is very physical. I'm still feeling really good, though sometimes a little tired. What kinds of things should I be doing with my day to make the most of this time? What do you wish you had done before becoming a parent? Looking for all kinds of suggestions, from health-related to frivolous splurges.
