Things To Do Before Baby!

  • Finish sewing diaper bag -(picture coming soon)
  • Finish putting together the dresser/changing table (picture coming soon)
  • Sew the cushion covers for the rocking chair cushions
  • Make a jean skirt for Emma out of a really cute pair of jeans I found, this will be for her birthday, she will be 8 on March 31st, they grow up so fast!
  • Get all the office stuff/junk out of the baby's closet
  • Clean the fish tank - they have been neglected (picture coming soon)
  • Watch 9-10 more Nursing videos to get my required hours of continuing education in so I can renew my license the end of July
  • Nail (survived) my job interview so I will have an RN job lined up to go to after Maternity leave (not job offer before baby, now I need to decide the next step of my career)
  • Mentally prepare myself as much as possible for what labor and delivery will bring
  • Donate 10 inches of hair to Locks of Love, (picture coming soon) this will make my crazy, curly mane more manageable when I have a newborn, plus I have been planning to do this for a while now, so I let my hair grow, it is almost down to my butt! *Wow, it feels soooo different to have short hair*
  • Any other things that I should do that I don't know I should do as a mother-to-be?

sleep as much as you can!

Wow. I think this will keep you occupied enough until baby comes. If you're like me, though, it does help to get it all down in a list.

Sleep, sleep and more sleep. :)

Cook up some meals to freeze you'll be so glad you have them.

I agree with Helen. Meals in the freezer are a lifesaver for those days you just can't get anything accomplished.

And pamper yourself a bit. Take a long bubble bath, get a pedicure, read a good book, sleep in, go out for a nice date with your hubby......it will be a few months before you'll get to do those things again!

Congrats! It looks like you've got plenty to keep yourself occupied for the next month or so!

You look Great! The new car looks exciting and big enough for a baseball team... is that what you are working towards? :) I don't know what to do before a baby comes but it sounds like you have everything under control!
