Anybody have a hobby you like to do while preggo?

I love cross-stitching.  I always seem to start a project when preggo.  Each baby gets framed art with their name and birthdate and some cute teddy bears, etc. 
I find it a very soothing and stress-relieving craft.  Plus its nice to make something for baby.  I know a lot of people like crocheting or knitting but I never learned.

Anybody want to share a fun hobby you do while preggo or otherwise?

  • Does eating count? LOL.

    When I was a kid, my grandma taught me to knit - just the basics, all we ever knit were scarves that we later donated to a church group. My recently, I went into the craft store bored, and came out with yarn and knitting needles. I've been watching some instructional you tube videos, and recently knit a hat! (We'll see if it fits!)

  • I have taken up sewing since I got pregnant. I have made DD 2 pillow case dresses and a dust ruffle for the crib. I am also going to make a curtain for the nursery, a cover for the changing pad, and a cover for the car seat. I find it rewarding that I can make things for Lo and DD. Not to mention, the money I save from making it myself and the choice to use a pattern I like instead of what I can find available at the stores.

  • Watching "questionable at best" TV.  This includes Nora Roberts Lifetime movies (watching one right now), Toddlers and Tiaras, and just random crappy TV (as described by DH).  I am super-lazy these days.
  • I love these

    1) eat

  • Scrapbooking! :)

    I'm making a pregnancy scrapbook instead of a pregnancy journal. It has all the ultrasound pics, all the bump pics, we wrote down on one part all the names DH liked and all the names I liked and why we chose the names we did :) Then there are pics on a family tree in there and I have space saved for pics of the shower :)

    Haha, this AND craft projects for the nursery. We're going with a nautical theme for our nursery, so there are all sorts of fun crafts that I'm working on (painting oars, building saillboats with quilted sails, etc.).

  • I wish I was crafty! My main hobbies have always been reading and writing, and that hasn't changed since I got pregnant.

    I'd really like to be able to make something for the nursery, though. Maybe a collage?

  • I've been playing piano a lot more in hopes that my baby can hear me and will want to play when he gets older. Like 4 y/o, lol.
  • Knitting for other people's babies.  I knit a blanket for my niece when I was pregnant with DS.  I am working on hats for several babies right now.  Hopefully I will also get around to making something for this baby.
