Today I am exactly one month away from my due date. While I am excited to meet little Cooper, I am overwhelmed with all there is to do before his arrival! First of all, let me advise other first time moms not to wait too long for their shower. My shower is in 2 weeks, which is partially because of waiting until after the holidays and planning around important guests. However, this only gives me two weeks to buy everything that was not bought off my registry, completely have everything put together, cleaned, and in its place; Not to mention, this will be the most awkward two weeks of the pregnancy (if I even last the whole two weeks), being so giant and fatigued. If you can, asking for an earlier shower will make this last month easier.
For now, I'd like to share my printable checklist of all the things I can do and will get done in the next few weeks!
Update: On the list I forgot to add "getting life insurance and creating a will" for custody, God forbid something happens to both of us. My job has a great life insurance policy, and my bank offers a deal too, so shop around for what works best for you!
