Know the address and contact number of the hospital where you’d like to deliver your baby, and it’s best to pre-register. You have to know it just in case your baby comes out before your due date.

And make sure that you know the vehicle you will use when you need to rush to the hospital.Pack for the Hospital
Prepare the bag or luggage you'll have to bring to the hospital. And it should include a baby blanket, extra clothing for you, infant sleeper, toothbrush, toothpaste, medical coverage information, nursing bra, etc.Shop for maternity Outfit
Shop for maternity outfit. It isn’t hard to get one because the maternity industry is growing, and there’s a lot of maternity fashion ideas that you can try out. Create a look that fits your personality. Wear a floral maternity dress and match it with a nice denim jacket to boot. For a photoshoot, you can wear a strapless maxi dress because of its stylish and comfortable. You can wear a skirt, too, and combine it with a turtleneck or regular fitted t-shirt.Get Baby Essentials
Get baby essentials like a bathtub, bottles, crib, clothing, flat mattress, diapers, diaper bag, and cream, etc. Prepare your nursery room, and just get what you think you and your baby will need. Don’t fill it with unimportant items to save space.Look For a pediatrician
Look for a pediatrician that you can trust. Do it before your baby arrives so you’ll not panic on the day of your little one’s first-ever appointment. Read reviews or ask people who are close to you to help you find one. They’re the best people to ask for suggestions.Invest in a Nursing Bra
If you’ll be nursing your baby, you need to have one that’s comfortable to wear any time of the day. You’re not supposed to wear a nursing bra with underwire until you’ve been breastfeeding for 3-4 months. Remember, a good nursing bra is something that can make breastfeeding an enjoyable experience.Install a Car Seat
Install a car seat before your baby comes out. It’s better to be ready ahead of time. Make sure that you have it checked by a professional so you’ll know that it’s installed properly.
There’s a lot to do before you give birth so see to it that everything’s settled.
