When you find out you’re pregnant you may be very excited but really overwhelmed too. Even though the birth of your little bundle seems far off at the moment there is a ton of stuff you need to do to prepare.

I remember the first time I found out I was elated and totally shocked. It was an awesome feeling but I knew even though it was early on that I had to get to work. I wish I had read a post that told me what to do during each trimester and so I’m writing one for my readers 🙂

Take Your Prenatal Vitamin


Of course, you want to begin getting all the necessary nutrients for you and your babe right from the start. This is a really good prenatal vitamin that won’t make you nauseated { and that will be important }




Find A Good  Obstetrician


Finding a really good Obstetrician is important. Most prefer a woman { I know I did }. Make sure to check the reviews online so you can get to know their practice and how their past patients have felt about them, then make your first appointment.


Research Insurance


It’s important to check your insurance coverage and make sure that you have all the benefits you need. If not you may have to purchase add-on insurance or perhaps you’ll qualify for temporary Medicaid depending on your income.

If you think you qualify for Medicaid you can go to your local health department and get a pregnancy test and then start your paperwork.


Check Your Maternity Leave Policies


You want to know where you stand right away when it comes to Maternity Leave so check your company’s policies but don’t tell them you’re pregnant right away.


Stop Smoking


Please don’t tell me you still smoke. But if you do right now is the time to quit because smoking has a very profound effect on pregnancy and your fetus. No excuses what so ever, just quit that.


Learn What To Avoid


There are quite a few things you need to avoid during pregnancy and it’s best if you learn early on. There are certain foods and certain activities like sitting in hot tubs that can be hazardous so don’t take any risks and educate yourself right away.


Start thinking About A Pregnancy Fitness Plan


It’s really tempting to just do absolutely nothing when it comes to exercise during pregnancy. You’ll be tired and you just don’t want to move.

But keeping up some form of exercise is vital to your own health as well as your baby’s. So get moving and create a plan.

It doesn’t have to be intense and if you follow through half the time with your plan then you’ll be good to go.


Schedule Naps


That’s Right. schedule your naps every. single. day. At least during the first trimester because you’ll be TIRED.

There’s nothing like ” Pregnant Tired “. It’s so intense and it was the very worst part for me during my three pregnancies. 6oclock in the evening bedtime anyone? Why yes, I’ll take that, and you will too.

My point is that you need to plan to rest A LOT. If you do it won’t interfere so much with your life.


Start Maternity Shopping


You can go ahead and start buying new clothes because by the end of the trimester your clothes will be pretty tight. So go ahead and indulge yourself and buy some cute things to wear in the upcoming months.

Just Relax


Just Relax mama and take a deep breath. It can all be That’s it for the first-trimester list. It’s all pretty simple at the beginning.  Good luck to you and I hope you enjoy pregnancy as much as I did!

If you’re interested in taking an online prenatal course my Friend Hilary at Pulling Curls has the best one right here as I mentioned above.
