This is my first DC - have finished work now smile

What should I be doing?

Have more or less finished the nursery.

Washed and folded all baby clothes.

Not packed a hospital bag yet

Not done any breathing exercises or anything like that (or not much exercise).

Have loaned a birth pool from a friend but when should I set it up / create a birth area at home? Am planning a bit of a hippy birth in the summer house with pool, candles, aromatherapy etc [crosses fingers].

Please give me suggestions of what I still need to do / could do for enjoyment!

I just did a Primark shop to get last few bits for hospitle bag (things I would be happy to bin). I would have a go at doing the pool and see how long it takes to get it right. Am reading lots of books and watching lots of crap on TV. Am also trying to meet up with at least one mate a week that I have not seen for ages to spend some quality time with them.

Relax, you won't get much time to do it soon, and spend as much quality time with your OH as possible.

Also you could cook loads of meals in advance an freeze them, you'll be glad of them when the baby comes and you can't be bothered to cook.
