The Third Trimester To-Do List

Once you hit about seven months, your pregnancy is almost over! While you still have time to revel in the miracle of being with child, it's time to start thinking about some of the joys and challenges that await you once your little one arrives. Here are three things to do in your third trimester of pregnancy.

1. Prepare your baby's room. Your little one will need a place to sleep – and that's where the nursery comes in. Luckily, with that nesting instinct in full gear, checking this one off the list shouldn't be too tough. Picking out the right paint, selecting a crib, decorating with pictures and wallpaper and finding all the right accoutrements can be a fun activity for you and your partner, and help you prepare both mentally and physically for your baby's arrival.

2. Learn about breastfeeding. Deciding whether or not to breastfeed is a personal choice that every mom-to-be must make, and it's one that you shouldn't make rashly. Be sure to do your research and speak with the experts about the pros and cons of each choice so you can make the one that's right for you. No matter what you decide, there will be a lot of preparation to be done!
