 3. Stay Active: Engage in safe, pregnancy-friendly exercises to maintain your health and prepare your body for childbirth. 

 4. Eat a Balanced Diet: Focus on a nutritious diet that includes a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins to support your baby’s growth. 

 5. Plan Your Maternity Leave: Discuss your maternity leave options with your employer and plan accordingly to ensure an stress-free transition to motherhood. 

 6. Prepare the Nursery: Create a cozy and safe environment for your baby by setting up the nursery with all the essentials. 

 7. Attend Birthing Classes: Consider enrolling in birthing classes to learn about labor, delivery, and newborn care. 

 8. Pack Your Hospital Bag: Prepare your hospital bag with all the necessary items for labor, delivery, and your postpartum stay. 

 9. Choose a Pediatrician: Research and select a pediatrician for your baby to ensure they receive the best care after birth.
