Amazing Pregnancy

Pregnancy Week 34


Third Trimester | Pregnancy Week 33 | Pregnancy Week 35

The Mom:

Now is a good time to make sure you are ready for baby. Even though he isn't due for several weeks yet, he may surprise you and make an early entrance.

Make sure baby's things are washed and ready. Do you have diapers in the house yet? You might want to stock up on nonperishable goods, and fill your freezer with casseroles and easy to prepare meals. Keep your call filled with gas, and know where and how to reach your birth partner when they are away from home.

Pack your hospital bag. You will need to pack the things you want during labor, such as music, massage oils and snacks for your partner. Put your birth plan in as well. Don't forget to add going home clothes for both you and baby. Keep in mind that you probably won't be able to fit into your prepregnancy clothes just yet and may be more comfortable in some loose maternity clothes. Don't forget your camera, address book, and birth announcements if you want to send them from the hospital. I always found it useful to have a roll of quarters. That makes it easy for my spouse to get a soda if he needs one.
