BABY: Maternity Leave plans for before baby

Next week I'm off on annual leave for a week and then go straight into maternity leave ahead of Bee's arrival (I cannot believe how fast this has all come round!!). I am so looking forward to a little time off to myself ahead of a what is going to be a hard few months.

Recently I caught up with My Petit Canard's blog (she's fab by the way) and was inspired by her to-do list for maternity leave, as at the time I really hadn't made any plans at all or given it much thought!

So to help keep me motivated in those last few weeks and keep me busy I thought I'd make my own list for maternity leave.
  • Make labour playlist
  • Wash baby clothes, blankets, muslin squares, toys etc
  • Pack hospital bags and double check them
  • Get some blog scheduling in
  • Make labour survival kit for at home
  • Sort Fathers Day gifts
  • Cook batches for the freezer
  • Go food shopping for larder supplies
  • Get pampered

Have I missed anything? Let me know your ideas in the comments below?


  1. It's my first day of maternity leave and I've spent it cleaning the house?! That was not my plan but I seem to be so anxious about getting it ready for my baby girl to arrive. I see dust and hair everywhere! I really need to chill. I'm planning to book a massage and reflexology appointment soon though :)

    1. I've literally done the same thing for the last two days! I can't get used to the time off!!
