Pregnancy Checklist

10a5c9290fdb37d49fe7596eae83301dDisclaimer: This is a long post.

Anyone that knows me knows that I research the crap out of everything.  Pregnancy is no exception.  When we first found out that we were pregnant, I spent hours and days just looking up stuff…. One web page would peak my interest in several other subjects and hyperlinks and there went my day.

I am currently 19 weeks pregnant and I started trying to think of everything that I needed to get done before the baby got here.  So what did I do?  Googled “Pregnancy checklist (or To do list)”.  Of course, I couldn’t find one list that had everything I wanted or it had way more check off items than I thought was necessary.  So I created my own list based off the several websites like,,, etc.  I took out what I didn’t need and put what I thought made sense.  Attached is my basic list (as of 1/5/2016).

Pregnancy To Do (Word document): Feel free to download and update it for your own use.  The last page also has a list of items that I need to pack in my hospital bag.  I thought about putting a list of items for baby registry, minimum maternity wardrobe, minimum things needed for newborns, etc but I already researched and have those things from my mental list.  If it would be helpful for you to have, let me know and I can upload one for you.

Also, I thought Anita (from had a pretty good list of things you should include in your hospital bag.

As always, if you have other things I should include in my checklist or have any questions, just let me know.  Thanks!
