(HealthDay News) -- There's so much to do before baby arrives. So if you find a little extra time before the big day, take care of a few necessary to-dos.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests:

  • Create a list of people to whom you'll send birth announcements.
  • Prepare several days' worth of meals and freeze them for after baby is born.
  • Interview candidates for any needed help, such as housekeeping and child care services.
  • Ask family members and friends if they can help.
