Start Filling Your Piggy Bank
First Trimester: Week 14
List It Out. Make a list of the most expensive and essential items you’ll need by the time baby gets here, like a crib, car seat, and stroller. Determine how much money you’ll need to save to purchase those items, taking into account any offers from family and friends to gift them to you. Then schedule when you’ll buy them. It’s good to have the car seat and a safe space for baby to sleep at least a month before your due date.
Notify Your Employer (and Begin Planning For Maternity Leave)
Second Trimester: Week 24
Prepare For The Discussion. Even the most effusive and supportive employer is quietly panicking inside her head, wondering, “How on earth are we going to take care of her projects while she’s gone for three months?” Give her some time to react by sharing the news matter-of-factly during a regular meeting, and then say, “Over the next couple weeks, I’m going to start drafting a coverage plan, and I’d like to meet with you about it next month to talk it through and make sure nothing slips through the cracks in my absence.”
Set Up a Notification Plan
Third Trimester: Week 37
When Things Get Real. Determine who is going to be in charge of fielding calls and texts when go time is here. I recommend either handing your phone over to your partner or labor support person, or turning it off once you’re in active labor or head into the operating room if you have a C-section. Consider how those closest to you would best receive the news. Sure, your coworkers and distant relatives can find out when you post about it to your Facebook page. But your immediate family and best friends would likely love a group text and a few pictures first, and your grandma probably wants to find out via a phone call.
"With four kids of her own and over a decade of experience networking with other mothers online, Jill Krause has the experience and the humor to help you prepare for what real life is like with a baby. Centering truths that seasoned mothers often forget or just don’t want to discuss at all, this is the pregnancy book I wish I’d had 14 years ago before I gave birth to what felt like an alien." —Heather B. Armstrong, creator of dooce®
“Jill is like the best friend who fills you in on all the pregnancy stuff without terrifying you. A perfect read for first-time moms who don’t know where to start, Jill's book is the checklist every woman needs for her pregnancy journey.”—Amy Morrison, founder of Pregnant Chicken
"Jill has knocked it out of the park with this one, creating an invaluable resource for moms-to-be (and dads, too!). This book covers everything from choosing the appropriate medical provider to obscure food cravings to finding underwear that truly fits! The perfect blend of advice from experts, tips from fellow moms, and Jill's own firsthand pregnancy knowledge is what makes this something no expecting mom can go 40 weeks without." —Adrian Kulp, author of We're Pregnant!: The First-Time Dad's Pregnancy Handbook and Dad or Alive: Confessions of an Unexpected Stay-at-Home Dad
"There is no better person than Jill Krause to lead a first-time mom-to-be through her pregnancy. She does it with honesty, rawness, a sense of humor, and―most importantly―a helluva lot of useful information." —Ilana Wiles (aka @mommyshorts), author of The Mommy Shorts Guide to Remarkably Average Parenting
"First-time moms-to-be are rightfully scared of the unknown: pregnancy, labor, delivery, breastfeeding, parenting, and so on. I often find myself talking patients off the ledge, so to speak, about something they read online or on a medical pregnancy app. This book makes my job easier… It’s a guidebook to pregnancy that acts as a link between your healthcare provider, your family and friends’ unsolicited advice, and all the crazy stuff you will read online. It’s a useful tool that makes you laugh." —from the Foreword by Sara A. Robert, MD, Obstetrician and Gynecologist
"This would be the perfect gift for the first-time expectant mom who wants answers outside of the routine doctor's visit." —Claire Kerr-Zlobin, Founder & Executive Director of Healthy Start, Healthy Future--This text refers to the paperback edition.
About the Author
JILL KRAUSE is the founder of Baby Rabies, an award-winning blog about pregnancy and parenthood. In the summer of 2007, Jill diagnosed herself with baby rabies―an obsession with getting pregnant, not an actual disease, y’all―and the website was born soon after (followed, appropriately, by her first child). The blog has since been recognized by a variety of media, including TIME, Vogue, Buzzfeed, and The Bump, and was awarded the 2016 Iris Award for Blog of the Year. Jill’s posts and videos have been published online by outlets such as Daily Mail, Us Weekly, Huffington Post, Today, and more. Jill earned her undergraduate degree in journalism from the University of Missouri, where she met her husband Scott. Together, they have four children: Kendall, Leyna, Lowell, and Wallace. In 2017, they sold their Dallas-area home and bought an RV. They are touring the country with their children the rest of 2018 and sharing that adventure on Happy Loud Life.
Foreword writer, DR. SARA ROBERT, is a board certified OB/GYN at Craig Ranch OB/GYN in McKinney, Texas. Dr. Robert specializes in both high and low-risk pregnancies and offers other services including well woman exams, treatment for pelvic pain, menopause support and gynecological surgery.--This text refers to the paperback edition.
