Begin your baby’s literature journey even before his birth. Suggest a children’s book theme for your baby shower or have guests bring their favorite children’s book in lieu of a card to stock your children’s library. Also asking seasoned mothers for their favorites can help when adding items to your baby registry.
When I was pregnant with my first, I had my hospital bag loosely packed somewhere around 35 weeks. With my second, I had very little packed at 38 ½ weeks. (What a shame since a surprise home delivery left no one time to pack anything else!) I landed somewhere in the middle with my third, packing my bag around 37 weeks. No matter where you are in your pregnancy, there is no right or wrong time to pack your bag—but there are definitely items to include on the “must-have” list.
Nesting isn’t just for the birds. And if you’re entering your third trimester, there’s a good chance you know it all too well. Nesting, the act of preparing for a little one’s arrival through sporadic bursts of energy coupled with unusually strong compulsions to clean or organize, can take on a life of its own, particularly in the last few weeks of pregnancy.
