Being a first time mom-to-be is an overwhelming feeling of emotions. If you are anything like me, you feel like there should be all this “stuff” to accomplish from the moment you find out you are housing a little one for 10 months. In reality, YES there is a ton that eventually needs to be done, but it isn’t as crazy as you think it would be, or at least as crazy as I thought it would be. I’m not kidding when I tell you I thought i was going to be baby prepping DAILY \, some times during the pregnancy are busier than others. The first trimester (for me), was basically all the registry and trying to keep myself upright and productive! I did a ton of research on everything I was putting on my registry. i am not a huge “name brand” person, but I do want QUALITY! If we are able to have a second child, I want this baby stuff the last and hold strong, I am not about to start all over again for baby #2. Look for a soon to come blog post on how to go about making a dynamite baby registry!
I love to be organized. If you know me personally, you know I am a chaotic mess that loves lists. I think that describes me pretty well :p I can be so organized yet so scatterbrained at the same time, and let me tell you, pregnancy brain is not helping my case one bit! If you look back to my last post, you will see I made a nice litter template for you to write all your baby shower gifts on! I made this and printed it and it is already being put to good use!
Today is a different type of list, I went through and did a little research and made a list of what I need to get accomplished, or that I have already accomplished, prepping for baby!! This is not a tried and true method, because, well, I am a work in progress and haven’t actually had a baby yet! However, this is the list I am personally following to prep for Baby Barnes. I don’t really have it in a particular order, except for what trimester I found suitable for the task to go into. You might think differently, that is perfectly fine! Just check it off as you go!
If you think there is something super important that I forgot, PLEASE leave a comment below and I will be happy to add it and update the image for you 🙂
