Staying Organized While Pregnant: Prego Planner LIVE Giveaway!

I’m a sucker for anything pregnancy related right now. Yes, I’m a marketer’s dream! Pregnancy pillows, belly bands, I’m looking for it all! I’m also in love with everything baby right now though I just can’t wait to try it on Spawnie.

Most times it hasn’t really sunk in that I’m REALLY having a baby. I still can’t wrap my head around the concept. I sorta feel like I’m playing house and we’re just pretending. I’m usually most eager for my next doctor’s appointment, but I feel bad cause when that day finally arrives I’m usually forgetting my questions.
I love keeping a record of things and I LOVE to write things down. Hence my blog… But I also have a baby journal, a regular journal, and a little notebook I keep in my purse to jot down thoughts throughout the day.
Putting my need to stay organized, write things down, and my love for pregnancy products all into one. Heather Patterson told me about the Prego Planner, your ultimate pregnancy organizer and offered to send me one and I literally squealed when I got it. See… There’s this thing called Prego Brain… I didn’t believe it when people first told me about it but now I have a TESTIMONY of it! This will help save you from it’s wrath!
There’s so much in this planner! A place for info about your OB or Midwife, a place for your updates at each checkup with spots for every measurement they take! Lists for a new baby!.. Oh it’s so fun. Here’s most of the features:
  • 12-month undated calendar
  • Pages to hold critical information such as OBGYN/Midwife contact information, hospital information, insurance information, pharmacy information, test results, questions for the physician and a chart to assist in keeping track of monthly progress
  • Interview questions for potential pediatricians
  • The ultimate nursery checklist to assist with registering for baby showers and keeping track of what items have been fulfilled and what hasn’t
  • An essential “acts of kindness” and gift log
  • A unique checklist of things to do before baby arrives
  • An area for the birth plan
  • A hospital packing list for Mom, Dad and Baby
  • Family and friends call list
  • Post delivery checklist
  • Space for postpartum visit questions
  • A handy pocket for paperwork
  • Coated and sturdy tabs that make the desired pages readily available
  • Easily interchangeable pages… and much more

I’ve already filled out my calendar and have Spawnie’s due date marked along with my weekly milestones.

I love that pages can easily be removed if you don’t need it, or rearranged easily because it’s put together in a three ring binder. It easily fits in my purse and you’d better believe it’s at every doctor’s visit with me!
A lot of you I know will love that there’s also a place for my birth plan! Can’t wait to fill those pages out (there’s several)! And like I mentioned before, there’s several checklists for your newborn as well as for your hospital bag.
Being a first time mom I think it has really been so helpful in having a place for everything I may want to ask, or want to make note of. And it keeps me incredibly organized. I said I like to write things down but I didn’t say I was organized… This keeps me that way!
So far this has been one of my FAVORITE pregnancy items (along with Bellybars and potatoes) and I think it’s one of those things any newly preggo should add to their list of “must haves.”
If you’re not into the Chocolate style kind that I have, there’s also Zebra, and Dressy.
Another great feature… It’s not expensive. The Prego Planner is only $24.

Randi says:

Have you learned about/done a review on the hip slimmer? It’s supposed to be a corset for your hips so you can wear your old skinny jeans after birth. If you haven’t heard of it, I thought you might like it 🙂

Elana Kahn says:

Do you have a bella band yet? They also make ones for after birth (I can’t remember what they’re called, but I have a small that I won’t ever fit into and you might…). Those ones are supposed to help your tummy shrink back to its normal size.

I had the worst preggo brain, so I would have loved to have an organized place to jot down questions for my doctor.

Sookie says:

This would have been perfect while I was pregnant!!

Alanna says:

I don’t need a planner since I already have one, but I’ll help you get closer to #625! 🙂

Sophia says:

I read somewhere that drinking lots of water through your pregnancy helps prevent stretch marks. Not sure if that is true but I did it and my belly and most other parts of my body is stretch mark free at 7 months.

Tara says:

I would sooooo love this! I’m pregnant with my first (March 25/10) and need to keep organized. 🙂

casey aubut says:

I would love to give this to my BFF who just found out she is expecting and freaking out!! Maybe this would help her feel more in control! haha!

Honey B. says:

I like that it has the who to call list for after the baby is born. I’m not sure why, but I never thought about that? Especially if my honey would be making the calls! lol

Mrs. Lopez says:

My favorite feature is the Pediatrician questions. I have no idea where to begin! Plus, if they aren’t written down, I’ll forget them anyway!

Mrs. Lopez says:

I am a follower of your blog.

Mrs. Lopez says:

My pregnancy tip: if your hips are really sore, a good yoga stretch is to do a deep squat while holding wrists with a partner who is also doing a deep squat. It feels so good!

Goss Family says:

My tip is, cherish them while they are young, they grow up way to quick and then you are left wishing they were babies again =( My husband and I are back and forth to fertility Dr’s now in hopes of adding a sibling very soon. All these Dr’s appointments get confusing and trying to remember to take all the meds and ask all the questions you had the past week seem to run my life lately, but in the end it will all be worth it =)

Melissa says:

Wow that planner is so cool! I am prego with my third. I have a 3 year old and a 20 month old and have 4 months to go…seems like forever!

Honey B. says:

I’ve heard that the syrup from canned peaches is good for morning sickness. I heard it from a woman who had 9 kids, so she’s a decently reliable source right??

Honey B. says:

And I tweeted again today! @thehoneyb

Honey B. says:

I hope I’m doing this right, the rules confused me…probably because giving up coffee was part of my Baby Bucket List…lol
