pregnancy to do list

Happy expectant mother

Compiled by our bubhub members, this is an invaluable printable list of everything that you need to do - plus a few 'treats' - whilst you are pregnant.

"Preggie-brain" may mean that you are likely to forget things, so keep this list handy and make sure that you don't miss out on important deadlines, appointments and things to do!

Many of the 'To Do' items below link to a useful page on this site with tools and directory listings for your region. This is a quick list - for more comprehensive articles, checklists and fun quizzes to check what you've learned,,, see our Online Pregnancy Guides.

Bookmark this page and return to it for the links to the listings and information. Got a pregnant friend? Send this to them - they'll thank you!

Visit our Pregnancy Info Hub for a complete list of pregnancy products, pregnancy services, articles, tools and more.
