Week-28 of your 40-week pregnancy has started and you’re starting to feel a little intimidated.
It’s the 6th month of your pregnancy, so by week 37, you know that you’ll start getting those twinges indicating that your baby is getting ready.
But until then, what should you do? Is there something you should expect?
Here are some of the details you should know. Followed by which, we’re providing some activities you should definitely take care of before your little one arrives!
Events that may happen during your third trimester will include:
During this time, it’s important that you maintain a healthy lifestyle and follow the regime your doctor recommended so your body is prepared for birth. You will be required to:
If you’re planning on nursing your baby, learn all that you can about the best way to do so. Talk to other mothers or your doctor, read articles and take breastfeeding classes. Stock up on nursing balms, reusable nursing pads and baby covers – everything you need to make nursing as comfortable as possible.
Bring in your partner or a friend for help. Strollers, bassinets and bouncy chairs can be difficult to put together, so it’s better to have something alongside to help. Buy a lot of rechargeable batteries along with a battery charger so you don’t run out of them.
Do your research online, make a list of everything you need and buy it now instead of later. Pregnancy can be unpredictable so you never know when you might need your hospital bag. Store nursing bras, maternity hospital gowns and everything you need so you stay comfortable during your visit. Then double-check it.
Even if they were kept pristine in their plastic wraps, you never know when those blankets and cute outfits might have gotten something on them. Wash them for good measure and use a hypoallergenic detergent to remove any irritants.
Only a few more months, and you’ll have your own bundle of joy in your arms. Celebrate this time with a special treat.
Have a maternity photoshoot or throw a party in your honor. Splurge on yourself a little and have a pampering session.
Be nice to yourself and stay prepared. The future is going to be exciting!
