Reality Check

Oh my gosh... for some reason it is really starting to sink in that I'm having a baby in just thirteen weeks... thirteen weeks!  I can't believe how little time is left - and how much stuff I still need to do.  There's just so much!  Here's just some of the things I know I need to get done:

  1. Get whooping cough vaccine - Justin
  2. Finish baby blanket
  3. Clear out the old guest room
  4. Set up the nursery
  5. Start stocking up on diapers, wipes, etc.
  6. Wash baby clothes, bedding, and other linens
  7. Clean out both cars (professional car washes)
  8. Purchase and install car seat
  9. Talk to insurance company about breast pump coverage
  10. Set-up maternity leave
  11. Deep clean the house
  12. Create a birth plan
  13. Attend childbirth classes, breastfeeding classes, and child care classes
  14. Read up on breastfeeding
  15. Start cooking freezer meals for after birth
  16. Find a pediatrician (and update pre-registration with information)
  17. Pack a bag for the hospital for mommy and baby
  18. Create a contact list to announce the birth
  19. Figure out how to use our camera
  20. Purchase nursing bras and pajamas
  21. Buy rest of baby gear (after baby shower)
  22. Send thank you notes for baby shower
  23. Put together gifts for nurses
  24. Pick out a name
  25. Pick out birth announcements (so all I have to do is add picture)
  26. Get paperwork from Justin's work to add baby to insurance
It feels good to at least get it all written out.  I'm sure I will come back to this list and update it as I come up with other things I need to do, but this helps me focus on what I need to get done so I can start to schedule my time just a little bit better.  I've got a schedule of weekends from now until our due date, and we don't have a lot of free weekends left, so I need to use them wisely!

If you know of anything else that I need to be getting done, please let me know!



That's a lot to do LOL...But you will get it all accomplished. You must figure out that camera, because you have to post lots of pictures of that bundle of joy LOL

I always feel like it's good to write out a list of to-do's before baby too - helps me feel more organized!
