Pregnancy may be starting to lose some of its glow. Having your baby shower right about now might give you just the boost you need.
Look into maternity leave benefits. Interview lactation consultants. Register for your shower if you haven't already done so. Decide whether you will bank your baby's umbilical cord blood. If so, choose a cord blood bank (go to fitpregnancy.com/cordblood).
What to do now:
From the stressful (prenatal tests! gaining weight!) to the sheer fun (buying maternity clothes! your baby shower!), growing a baby involves a seemingly endless host of developments to expect, plan and accomplish. Our step-by-step timeline and checklist will help you navigate your pregnancy with as little stress and guesswork as possible. So grab your pencil, put your feet up and simply gestate!
