I'm a big fan of lists, even though I don't always follow them. I just like knowing that they're there and the information I need is captured in one place. So, when I was expecting my son, I was glad for the many baby websites, blog posts, and the thorough lists in each chapter of my pregnancy books. My partner and I did our best to prepare our home (and ourselves) for our son's arrival, but we discovered that, despite what we read, there were things that you don't have to do before your baby is born.
Of course, some of the things I didn't find particularly necessary, are things you may want to do. Because every woman and every pregnancy is different, I can confidently say, "That's great!" and commend you for tackling any (or all) of the things I just didn't have time for. In fact, while I didn't have all of the time, I did find a spare minute here or there to accomplish a few things. After all, pregnant women aren't incapable shells of their former selves. We can still get sh*t done, you guys.
However, our son's early months taught me that most of what he needed (sleep, food, clean diapers, clutch snuggles) had very little to do with the things I thought I just had to do before he arrived. Did I feel better because I had found the time to accomplish a few things? Sure. But if I were to do it again, I'd certainly stress less about getting everything done before his arrival, and just worry about covering the basics (which, in my case, were newborn pajamas, swaddles, and a breast pump).
