Hi, I am new to Circle of moms and is a 37 week pregnancy. There is 3 weeks to go and i am very exciting and anxiety about to be a Mom. This will be a milestone, isn't it?????? What should be prepared in advance???

Make sure you have diapers and wipes! Don't want to have to run to the store in the middle of the night because you don't have enough! Stock up on nursing pads as well, you will leak like a faucet when your milk comes in! Also, I think it's a good idea to have a few bottles and a backup can of formula in case you have trouble nursing. And make sure to have a good stock of maxi pads for yourself. Good luck!

Make sure the nursery is finished and is ready for baby to come, pack your bag ready for hosital as the baby can come any day now. Make some meals up and freeze so that whilst you are finding your feet with motherhood you have a meal ready for you. Buy plenty of tea and coffee as the family will all want to come around and see the baby. Make shopping lists for your partner to buy the groceries and a meal planner so he knows what he is supposed to be cooking or helping you prepare for tea.

Above all try and get as much sleep as you can. The first 12 weeks are so exhausting with broken sleep every 3-4 hours. Good luck!
