When I was 17 weeks pregnant on October 7th, 2011 🙂
The preparation before pregnancy, during pregnancy, and the month before labor is quite a lot! I’ve thought of things I want to follow during my second pregnancy! I didn’t give it much research during my first planned pregnancy because of the excitement of it! Being pregnant with my firstborn is just very EXCITING and all I could think of is having him at that moment.
This time around – I want to do things differently. As in before conceiving – I want to prepare my body mentally and emotionally. Taking vitamins a few months before being pregnant, no caffeine, no alcohol, and less raw fish. I believe this will be easier when I actually get pregnant and all of a sudden needing to change my habits. I would also prepare some freezer meals ahead of time because my morning sickness was REALLY bad during my first pregnancy – it was nonstop puking. Even if I couldn’t eat – I would know that there’s food in the freezer for my husband to heat up and eat.
During my pregnancy – there’s quite a bit of planning to do: Party planning (My son’s birthday party, baby shower, gender reveal, baptism, welcoming baby and etc…) All these parties can be planned during second trimester when I’m less tired.
Plus I’ll have a couple months of blog posts planned, meal prepped and freeze, stocked up pantries and freezers, the nursery all set up, and shopping for diapers, wipes, clothes, bottles, breastfeeding pumps, car seat and etc.. I plan to do all this during second trimester.
When third trimester hits – I’ll make sure diaper bag and car seat is installed. I think third trimester is when I’ll be getting more fatigue because of the weight. I’ll be relaxing more on bed, couch, and getting daily prenatal massages.
I have everything all planned out in my head and it feels great typing it out – I don’t need to store it in my brain for awhile lol. We haven’t decided on when to have baby #2 yet but we are sure excited to have him/her when we get that all sort out.
