I am so incredibly excited to be nearing the end of this pregnancy. I have had an absolutely wonderful pregnancy and though being pregnant has been an amazing experience, I can’t wait for our daughter to be here!
I am about 8 weeks from our due date so I’m eager to knock things off my pre-baby checklist. Although I know we won’t get everything done before August 1, my goal is to get the bulk of things done by then and then to relax as much as possible my last 4 weeks. Here’s a look at my third trimester checklist and when I hope to have things done by.
-Find a pediatrician
-Attend newborn prep class and infant CPR class
-Take maternity photos
-Buy things still on registry that we need
-Finish the nursery
-Ask Neal to assemble baby gear
-Test out the drive to the hospital with Neal
-Pack hospital bag (by August 1)
-Buy “mommy things” (nursing tanks, robe, etc.)
-Wash all of the baby’s clothes
-Stock our pantry (Costco run)
-Have the house cleaned or use my super nesting powers to deep clean it myself
-Install the car seat
I’m sure I’ll think of a few more things before the baby arrives, but this is what I hope to get done before she arrives. Obviously she could come any time, but I’m hoping to make it through most of August before she arrives. I can’t believe we’re nearing the end. It’s incredible exciting!!
