Diamond Whole Almonds, 6-Ounce Bags (Pack of 4) You need to pay more attention to your health than ever now. Take those prenatal vitamins! To avoid morning sickness, make sure your stomach is never completely empty and be sure to stay hydrated! That means lots of small meals and plenty of water (which also helps with swelling).

By your third trimester, you'll probably be finding it uncomfortable to bend over to get to your feet. Try to find some suitable basic slip-on shoes, whether that's clogs in cold weather or flip-flops during summer or comfortable flats you can wear to work. P.S. I highly recommend scheduling a pedicure sometime during your last two months. First because your feet will probably be looking a bit neglected by then, and secondly because you'll appreciate the pampering.
DayMinder G200-00 Recycled Weekly Appointment Book, Black, 4 7/8" x 8", 2015 Even if you don't normally carry one, you'll need to get a calendar (preferably one you can tote around in your purse). Between increasing doctor appointments, childbirth and parenting classes, appointments to choose a pediatrician or day care provider and pregnancy amnesia, you're going to find that you MUST write things down.
I know you may be tired and uncomfortable. But now is going to be the last chance you have to get some things done before things get really chaotic! Try to delegate physically demanding chores like cleaning out the garage to someone else (family, husband, friends) while you can take care of things such as writing up your family tree for your coming baby, keeping a journal, getting that pile of bills filed, etc.
SEPSMWHFA32140 - Handi-foil Half-Size Aluminum Disposable Steamtable Pan - 2-1/2'' Deep Starting in your last month or two, try to double a casserole recipe once a week and freeze half for after the baby's here. Trying to get yourselves fed can be an incredible challenge when you're tired and overwhelmed. These containers are perfect for preparing, baking and freezing, especially if covered with layers of heavy-duty aluminum foil and stored in large Ziploc bags in the freezer. Be sure to label what the casserole is, as well as the baking time and temp.
Mylicon Infant Gas Relief- 1 Fl Oz We used a generic version of this. Our pediatrician said that this was fine to use with our newborn - if they don't use the medicine, it just gets pooped out. Bottom line, you don't want to be stuck at home with a fussy, gassy baby and no remedy.
Size It Closet Organizers 5ct, Sage These are especially useful for young babies. They go through clothing so quickly and it's easy to miss out if you don't have things arranged by size. You're sure to be getting lots of gifts of adorable outfits!
First and foremost - PLEASE make up a simple list of phone numbers. These should include the home, cell and work number for you and dad, the number for your OB, the number for the hospital/maternity ward and all numbers of people you want to contact with the birth info (family and friends). You should have a copy of this list by every phone in your home, in your cars, at work and in your purse. If your water breaks or there is an emergency, the last thing you want to have to do is run around looking for contact numbers! (My water broke when I was home alone - I was able to grab the phone and phone list and run into the bathroom to make all of my calls.)
Once you're home from the hospital, replace the lists with new ones that have the contact info for your pediatrician, Poison Control and any other important numbers. Attach at least one copy of this to your main phone for any newborn babysitters.
