Holidays can already be a stressful time, and mix that with pregnancy and hormones and you can be asking for trouble. Iím not meaning for just the pregnant woman either, anyone and everyone in her path. Women already feel the pressure of having that perfect holiday for her family, which is probably why she decides to do 100 things at a time... stressing herself out in the end. However, she doesnít have to have a stressful holiday. There are five ways to make your holidays something to remember.

Mark the Dates

Go out and buy yourself a calendar for the holidays. Post it up on the wall and start marking dates. You wonít need to stress out because you wonít be double booking yourself. This can also help you in preplanning, mark the day you should send out the holiday cards or buy certain items.

Choosing Your Activities

During the holiday season you are sure to be invited to a couple of parties. It isnít necessary to attend every one of them. Decide which ones youíll enjoy the most, maybe two or three and explain to the rest youíll miss going but need some rest.

Choose Where Youíll Go

Whether you want to stay home for the holidays with your own family or go across country to be with the entire family the decision should be yours. Donít feel guilty telling them you wonít be making it this year, explain you need rest and traveling isnít very helpful. You may even want to extend an invitation for the family to come to your house instead.

Designating Jobs

If youíve decided to have the holidays at your house you can still have a good time. Donít forget that asking for help is okay. No one expects you to do it all on your own. Do you really have to cook the ham, bake the potatoes, make a cake, clean the house and set up the tree all by yourself? Designate others to help, they'll feel happy youíve given them something to do instead of sit around waiting while they watch you do it all.

Shopping Time

Shopping during the holiday season can be a nightmare that you donít need to attempt while pregnant. Itís safer to just stay home during some of those sales. Instead you may want to try shopping online, not only will you be home but you can relax. The only thing youíll need is a credit card and let your fingers do the work. You can even do all your holiday shopping early and have it delivered right to your front door. All you need to do is wrap it up and hide it in the closet.

Remember the holiday season is all about making memories thatíll last. You may be pregnant but you donít have to sit at home the whole time stressed out, instead you can actually enjoy yourself with these helpful tips. Donít forget to take a little time off to do something just for you, after all you deserve it.
