Pregnancy Checklist. Week #20
1. Almost time for my baby shower! I’ve asked a close friend or relative to host, and she and I have picked a date, location, and guest list.
2. My doctor has talked with me about the symptoms of preeclampsia. I’m following my doctor’s instructions about my diet, and I know to call if I experience any changes like severe swelling, sudden weight gain, or changes in vision.
3. I found out my baby’s gender! It’s a…never mind, not telling you yet.

4. We decided on our baby’s name! And it’s awesome.
5. Sudden dizziness is common in pregnancy. When I get up from lying or sitting down, I move slowly, and I always keep a snack in my purse.
6. Olive oil and canola oil are great for adding good fats to my diet, so I’m using them as dressing on my salads.
7. Being pregnant means something always hurts — my head, my back, my hips, my feet. Maybe it’s pregnancy, or maybe it’s just stress! I’m looking into getting acupuncture from a pregnancy-certified practitioner to help with the pain.

Pregnancy Checklist. Week #19
1. I’m staying hydrated! I’ve noticed that if I don’t, my hands and feet can start to swell, and I get leg cramps. If I start to notice those symptoms, I refill my water bottle and drink up.
2. I’ve researched online and asked my mom friends where the best places are to get discount prices on cute baby clothes.
3. I’ve learned about baby hygiene and care. I’m feeling slightly less intimidated by the rectal thermometer in my baby care kit.

4. I’ve researched baby monitors. I’ve thought about what features I want in a monitor, like video, sound, or music.
5. My baby can hear me now! I’ve started singing and talking to my baby regularly (but only when nobody can hear me. Mostly).
6. I’m looking into mommy & me classes in my area and thinking about which ones I might want to take after baby arrives. It’s tough to decide between music, exercise, and Baby Sign Language!
7. I’m working on strengthening my relationship with my partner and setting the foundation for our relationship as co-parents. I made a list of things I love about him, and I’ve told him why I think he’ll be a great parent.

Pregnancy Checklist. Week #18
1. I’m shopping for a glider or rocker! I’m going to need a comfy chair for all those late-night feeds — and I’m looking for a cushion that matches my nursery decor.
2. My partner and I are narrowing down our list of baby names. We’ve got a list of our top choices for both boy and girl.
3. I’ve discovered an annoying side effect of pregnancy: nosebleeds. (They’re caused by increasing blood volume and high blood pressure.) I’ve talked with my doctor about them, and I’m keeping a travel pack of tissues in my purse.

4. I’m finally showing! I may not look pregnant yet, but I’ve definitely got a bump now.
5. I’ve started researching my options for childproofing my house. I’m figuring out which cabinets I can lock and what items I need to move to a high shelf that’s out of reach. Better to think about it now than to wait till I already have a crawling baby!
6. If I want to breastfeed, I’ve signed up for a nursing class. I found one that’s taught by an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, so I’ll be sure to get the most recent breastfeeding information!
7. It’s almost time for the big ultrasound! I’ve scheduled my 20-week detailed scan — and I’ve told my doctor whether I want to find out the gender.

Hello. Mainly just trying to keep up with life. :). My little ones are starting to "get it" but the older ones are a mix.
