Pregnancy Checklist. Week #36
1. I talked with some experienced mom friends to make sure I’ve done everything I need to prepare for baby. I’m considered full-term this week, so baby could come any time!
2. I’ve talked with my religious community leader and finalized plans for our religious ceremony after baby is here!
3. I packed an extra bag of things to keep my partner and me entertained in the hospital, like magazines and crossword puzzles. I know that sometimes labor is a long waiting game.

4. The baby dropped! I can really see how my bump moved lower in my abdomen. Also, I feel like my baby is sitting right on top of my cervix now, which is the weirdest feeling ever. I think I’m done walking for a while, other than walking from my chair to the bathroom.
5. Diaper practice! My partner and I both know how to change a diaper. Thanks, YouTube.
6. I’ve made a dentist appointment to check my gums again before baby comes. I’m hoping baby waits long enough that I don’t have to cancel it! 
7. I wrote down my list of people who’ll be the first to know when labor starts and put it in my partner’s hospital bag. It includes phone numbers and emails so he can send an email and make phone calls to let everyone know when the baby is here!

Baby Checklist. Newborn
1. My baby got her first vaccination — a dose of Hepatitis B that’s given at birth. I also scheduled my baby’s first doctor appointment.
2. Who knew poop would ever be so interesting? I’m counting my baby’s diapers to make sure she has at least 6 wet ones and 3 dirty ones every 24 hours.
3. I’m hungrier now than I was when I was pregnant! I need 300-500 extra calories if I’m breastfeeding, so I’m eating at least 2,000 calories every day.

4. We’re ready to bring baby home! I washed all the baby clothes and bedding in a hypoallergenic detergent that’s designed not to irritate baby’s sensitive skin.
5. This hospital underwear is pretty practical. I’ve bought some disposable underwear of my own and some extra-long pads to protect me during postpartum bleeding.
6. I’ve got a postpartum support belt or wrap to support my belly as I’m healing. If I had a C-section, I’ve also bought some scar healing cream with vitamin E.
7. If I plan to bottle feed, then I’ve got the right equipment. My newborn needs small, 4 oz bottles and stage 1 nipples. I’ve also got a bottle brush to keep my bottles clean.
