Husband leaves soon for contracting!

My husband leaves in a couple of weeks to start his training for over seas contracting. I'm currently 21 weeks pregnant and only live by his family (mine is back in New York). His family and I aren't that close so I don't feel like I can count on them when I'm feeling lonely or bored. I also don't have a job right now but might be starting a work from home job soon! I'm just nervous that I'm going to get bored and I want to know what to do to keep myself busy!? He's my best friend and we spend every day together so not having him here is going to be very hard!

Im from Canada. Not only is it the norm, but its a financially viable option to take a full year mat leave. To combat boredom, I've taken up a new hobby (wearing interesting makeup) and assign myself a leave the home errand for every day. Sometimes, its just a walk that I (pathetically) call "working out". Often, I visit family. Without hubby home, if your parents or possible siblings are cool with it, why not visit for a few days? Travelling with baby is sometimes a little stressful, but hey, it's not boredom. And. I get to do something other than netflix.
