This is an interesting article that gives suggestions about things to talk about before the baby gets here. I think DH and I have covered most of the bases but there are some things that we need to re-visit again in a little while. I think when it's your first child this is all new and it's a big change for all of us. We still need to talk again about childcare. DH seemed to think we could wait until my maternity leave before we look for a provider and I assured him that it had to happen way earlier than that since most daycares have a waiting list for infants. We also need to talk more about what my work schedule will end up being when I go back to work. I work long hours and most daycares close before I get off work, plus I don't always get to leave on time. I'm in a job where you leave when your work is done, not when the clock says it's time. I'm sure we'll figure out a schedule that works and my job would probably be a little flexible with scheduling me on certain days that I am able to work a 12 hour shift. I'm sure there are more things than what's on this list but it's a pretty good starting point.
