7. Remember to Take Care of YOU

Make it a priority now to take care of yourself once the baby arrives. It's easy to neglect showering, sleeping and even eating when baby first arrives, yet it's crucial. Allowing yourself to just do these simple everyday tasks is a good way to maintain your sanity and energy to keep up with a newborn's needs.

Make small, easy meals, shower at night and sleep when the baby sleeps!

Remember not to stress when you're preparing yourself and home for your sweet arrival - everything will be done in time! It's also a fun idea to get a pedicure really close to your due date!
