Month 6

As your pregnancy progresses, you'll have more things to do to prepare for your baby's arrival. During month 6, there are many things you can do to make it easier both today and months from now. Later, you'll be fully occupied with the love and care of your baby, so take the opportunity this month to take care of business.
 
  Prepare Birth Announcements
Taking care of birth announcements now will save you precious time during those first weeks when your baby comes home. If you are using paper announcements, you can stamp and address the envelopes now to save time later.

    Birth announcement options:
      Buy ready-made announcement cards
      Make your own cards
      Record an automated telephone announcement
    Information to include in announcements:
      Name of your new baby
      Height, weight, length at birth
      Where your baby was born (if desired, hospital name, city, state, or country)
      Special parent comments such as: "He has his daddy's eyes and his mom's smile."
      The times that visitors are welcome 

  If You Need a Different Car...
Your pre-baby wheels may not be appropriate for driving around with a baby. If you need to unload your two-door sports car for a more practical vehicle, it's time to investigate your options. 
 
  Where There's a Will There's Security
Getting a will drawn up may not be a pleasant thought. After all, there wouldn't be a need for a will unless something happened to you or your spouse. But a will is a way to be sure your child will be cared for in the event of an accident or illness. If you already have a will, you'll probably want to change it to include a new beneficiary. See your legal counsel or purchase a pre-made will-writing kit to make your own document.
