1. I’ve thought about whether I want a birth partner like a doula at my labor. I figure my partner might need some help with giving me massages and bringing me ice chips.
2. Growing a baby is inspiring me to grow other things, so I’ve been gardening. Gardening is a great pregnancy-safe exercise, but I’m making sure to always wear gloves to avoid potential parasites.
3. I can check another “nesting” task off my list: I’ve figured out where all the big baby gear (like the stroller) will go in my house. I’m starting to wish for a bigger house already!

4. Pregnancy is giving me dry eyes, so I’ve stocked up on saline drops.
5. I’ve been researching ways to interact with baby after he arrives, especially games and activities that will help him develop mentally and socially.
6. My partner and I have talked about how we’ll keep the house clean in the first few months after baby arrives. (I’m voting for a house cleaning service!) 
7. I’m not counting calories, but I am staying aware of how much I should be eating — which could be less than I think. I only need 300-500 extra calories a day. My weight gain is right on track: 1/2 to 1 pound per week.
