I remember the feeling all too well…I had just taken my pregnancy test and within seconds saw that 2nd line…the one that means “I’M PREGNANT”. I remember the thoughts racing in my mind wondering “What’s next?!”, “How do we start preparing for baby?!”.
If that’s currently you — congratulations! First things first, please don’t panic.
Preparing for a baby isn’t as bad as it seems.
In fact, these should be days full of joy and excitement! And to make your life easier, I created a 100% FREE Baby On The Way Preparation Guide!
Preparing for baby timeline
One of the biggest questions floating around preparing for baby is ‘when should you start & what should you do’?
Keep in mind, you have roughly 9 months until your bundle of joy arrives so what kinds of things should you start thinking of after seeing that positive pregnancy test?
- Scheduled a doctor’s appointment to confirm your test
- When and if you want to announce your pregnancy
- Reevaluating your budget and figuring out if you need to start saving money for baby
- Make sure you’re consuming a healthy nutritional diet for you and baby
After becoming pregnant with my second baby boy and being someone with a very type A personality — I decided to put together a checklist for myself. One that would encompass what I needed to do during EACH trimester. One that could help me keep track of important resources such as childbirth classes, breastfeeding support, and more! Last, but not least, one that would help me not just prepare myself and my husband, but prepare our entire home as well!
While I was using a very ugly version of this checklist for myself, I knew it could actually be helpful for pregnant mamas to use too! So I made it look extra pretty, added lots of information, and customized checklists JUST FOR YOU!
