The first pregnancy is always complicated. Happy, nervous, panic, expecting etc.. Until your baby arrives, your life changes forever. To make your first step to raise a baby with some preparation, here is an useful list of what to do in the last trimester.
1.Pack a “going home” outfit for baby in advance.
When newborn is ready to go home, you need to bring cute outfits for wearing. Also remember to keep your self warm as well.
2. Expanse your phone storage.
Almost every new mom take so many photos and videos of your baby to record every moment that he/she grows, which will hit your storage max quickly. So expanse your icloud in advance to upload photos and videos.
3. Sign up for Amazon Prime.
If you haven’t already, just do it. Although you prepare everything, there are still some missing stuffs. And believe me diapers are used quickly beyond your imagination. Amazon can solve you with all this with quick shipment.
4. Buy a comfy breastfeeding clothing.
Purchase at least two nursing tops for exchange. Choose one that is comfortable and makes you feel good. Bhome nursing tops sets can be a good choice.
5. Fill up your Netflix queue and download some books to your Kindle.
Newborns nurse or bottle feed takes 10 to 12 times a day, for 20 to 30 minutes at a time. Even 1 hours in the early weeks. So that these are some time that you can rest your self a little bit with reading and watching. Also just look at your baby’s cute face is also very healing.
6. Set up your birth announcement.
Figure out what you are going to write on Instagram or physical announcements. Addressing your happiness to everyone who loves you.
7. Wash baby’s new clothes.
Newborns always keep bringing new “surprises”. Clothes for babies are easily get dirty. So that wash baby’s new clothes for exchange is quite important.
8. Get some music.
Babies feel the world with ears at the first. Whether its the sound of a fan, the ocean, or music, and baby will love it.
9. Research mommy classes.
They may not seem like your cup of tea now, but in a couple of months, being in a room with other moms in your overtired shoes will feel like a lifesaver.
Sleep more and take more naps to relax your self as long as you can until your bladder forces you out of bed. You need to have enough energy to give birth.
Pregnancy is an unforgettable process. Hope all mothers can enjoy and go well.
