Due in a few weeks, what is everything I need to be getting ready at home for her arrival? Feeling like I need to get everything ready but my minds gone blank.

somewhere for her to sleep, bottles and bottle steriliser in easy reach if you are planning to use them, car seat in the car are the first things I thought of.

Congratulations! Flowers

Do all the housework etc- things like home insurance, house repairs, buying birthday cards, stock the freezer, mend things etc
Basically you won't have a lot of spare time or brain for these things when baby comes.

oh yes, stock the freezer by batch cooking. you can get a bumper pack of birthday cards here, and try and think of whos birthdays are coming up so you can buy presents now and wrap them, ready to send.
