Currently, I’m 27 weeks with my third child, a boy. His two sisters are quite excited, although I’m not entirely sure that my soon-to-be middle child understands what’s going on, other than noticing that there is less “lap space” to sit on Mommy for bedtime stories. I feel huge. Really huge. Already. And based on my past two healthy deliveries, I’m more likely to deliver right around 39 weeks, but of course, this baby could throw me for a loop by arriving much sooner or making me wait way past my due date (which is late May). So while I still have the energy, clarity, and motivation, I have decided to create and tackle a “must-do” list of tasks for this final (and most challenging) trimester. Though I only list ten below, don’t ever think even for a nano-second that my list could be so simple and easy. This is a blog post, not a manuscript for the latest parenting how-to book. I could easily list more, but I’ll let all of you helpful readers crowd-source more “to-do”s that I probably haven’t considered! But I’ll be grateful nonetheless for your input.
So what to do between now and my baby’s birth day…
(in no particular order)
It’s crowd-source time! What’s on your to-do list? (Or, what did I forget?)
