Only 29 days left until my baby is due! I am so excited and can’t wait to meet my little one. These next few weeks are going to be a blur as I get everything ready for our new arrival. If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering what you need to do to get ready for your baby’s arrival.
Here are a few things that I am doing to get ready:
- Putting together a hospital bag: This is something that you want to do a few weeks before your due date, just in case you go into labor early. Make sure to pack your insurance information, comfortable clothes to wear home from the hospital, and any other items that you might need while you’re there.
- Making a birth plan: This is a great way to communicate your wishes to your care team. You can include things like whether or not you want to use pain medication during labor, who you want in the delivery room with you, and what kind of postpartum care you would like.
- Finishing up any home projects: If there are any home projects that you’ve been meaning to finish before the baby arrives, now is the time to do them! I am painting the nursery and putting together furniture this week.
- Taking care of myself: It’s important to stay healthy and take care of yourself during pregnancy. Make sure to eat healthy foods, get plenty of rest, and exercise regularly.
By following these tips, you can help ensure that you are prepared for your baby’s arrival. 29 days may seem like a lot of time, but it will go by quickly. So take the time to enjoy this special time in your life and get everything ready for your new arrival!
