The Third Trimester

February 16, 2015 • Babies, Toddlers & Kids, Notes from the Nursery

notes-from-the-Nursery-Third-TrimesterYou know you’ve reached your third trimester when you can no longer reach your feet!

Gone are the days when you could put on your own socks, zip up your own boots, and paint your toenails.  Oh, well, schedule your pedicures, ladies!

In all sincerity, your third trimester is such an exciting time.  It’s full of anticipation, a little bit of anxiety, and tons of nesting.  Here are some of my tips for managing the third trimester as well as a list of nursery essentials to stock up on prior to baby’s arrival.

1. Baby names.  It is so much fun choosing baby names with your spouse/partner.  It’s also a bummer when you completely disagree, but compromise is the name of the game.  We tend to love ethnic names of mostly Italian and Greek heritage.  With our son, we knew he was going to be the fourth generation to share his name with his dad, his pap, and his great grandfather, so his name was an easy one.  For the twin girls, it was tough to match them up without being too similar, but we decided to have them both end in “ina.”  Again, so much fun.  This time, without knowing whether we’re having a boy or girl, it has been so much more challenging.  I think we’ve finally got them locked down, just in time!

2. Decorate the nursery.  If you were able to get the room painted and furnished during your second trimester, now you can have fun nesting in the nursery.  Hanging curtains, paintings, and dressing up the crib is so much fun.  For our son, we purchased his crib bedding from Polka Tot Designs.  I absolutely loved working with them and they give you the design freedom to really create unique bedding for your little one.  It’s a bit pricey, but for your first baby, you don’t really seem to mind.  With the twins, we were much more practical, only ordering the sheets from Pottery Barn Kids, but finding the crib skirt and accessories on sale at Babies ‘R Us, TJ Maxx, and Burlington and everything was PINK, GLITTER, and PINK! This time, we painted the nursery a lovely gray and decorated in gold and silver accents.  I purchased the bedding from Pottery Barn kids, all on sale and it looks great.  Again, TJ Maxx had some perfect accessories, like “You are my sunshine” and “Love you more” frames.

3. Spend quality time with your kids and your spouse.  If this isn’t your first pregnancy, take some time to spend some one on one time with your kiddos.  Even if you just take them to breakfast or to the grocery store.  Early in the third trimester, I made it a point to take each of my little ones out for their own individual play date with mommy.  They all did such a great job taking turns and we had so much fun.  As far as your spouse/partner is concerned, make the time to go out to dinner and/or a movie as your due date approaches.  It’s important to spend some time together before chaos ensues ☺

4. Accept help when offered.  It may not be in your DNA to ask for help…it certainly isn’t in mine.  And you may have a difficult time accepting help, but just do it!  You need to take care of that little one in your tummy and make sure he or she arrives when it’s the right time.  Even as much as I love to cook, nothing helps me out more at the end of the third trimester than someone dropping off a hot meal.  I just can bear to stand at the stove and pull ingredients out of the shelves and refrigerator.   It’s also extremely helpful to have a relative come over and play with the kids while you retreat to your room and put your feet up.  Trust me, I have an incredibly difficult time “resting” but you’ve got to do it.  Remember, you’ll need all the energy you can muster when baby comes home and needs you for everything. You won’t rest for at least one year!

5. Stock the nursery.  Be sure to have your baby essentials on hand for your return home from the hospital.  Here is a list of my must-have items and some of my favorite brands:

  1. Diapers (I prefer Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive);
  2. Wipes (Huggies Natural Care);
  3. Diaper Cream (Desitin or Honest Baby);
  4. White Noise Machine (myBaby Soundspa Lullaby Sound Machine Projector);
  5. Swaddles (Summer Infant SwaddleMe);
  6. Unisex Baby Side Snap Tees (Carters)
  7. Sleepers
  8. Soft, thin baby washcloths;
  9. Burping cloths;
  10. Pacifiers (Wubanubs);
  11. Breast Pump (Madela Advanced Pump in Style);
  12. Bottles – at least 3 if you’re breast feeding just in case you pump and store (Dr. Browns, 4 oz.) If you’re formula feeding, be sure to have formula and at least 6 bottles;
  13. Boppy and Boppy cover;
  14. Baby towels (at least 2);
  15. Baby Monitor (Summer Infant);
  16. Baby Bouncer Seat (Fisher-Price Deluxe Infant Seat);
  17. Baby Swing (Fisher-Price Cradle ‘n Swing with AC Adapter – be sure it’s not battery operated!!); and
  18. Infant Car Seat (Graco SnugRide).

Good luck and God bless you and your growing family!  You’re almost there!!
