10 Things to do Before Baby Comes: Sleep!


1. Sleep– Get as much rest as you can, enjoy sleeping in, take mid-afternoon naps, sleep, sleep, sleep because as soon as your baby has arrived, expect to be sleep deprived!  I’m still sleep deprived! My oldest is almost 6 and my youngest is 11 months.

One of my fondest memories was of when I was pregnant with my oldest.  We lived in Carlsbad, CA, a block from the beach.  One day after work I was exhausted and I remember opening our sliding glass door, turning on the baseball game and laying down on my favorite couch for a mid afternoon nap.  It was an amazing nap because the temperature was perfect, the sofa was so comfortable and the sound of the  Dodgers baseball game was like a lullaby in my ears.

One day I’ll be able to lay down for an afternoon nap, but for now, coffee is my friend!
