Honestly I only participated for the prize involved. I didn't really had a favorite activity or find any particular day helpful. I'm sorry, it's just the truth.

Kinda just overwhelmed me with all the things I still have to gather/buy...ugh.

I thought it was very interesting to do, and I love how it made me think about some really important things for the future. I find my mind muddled a lot trying to think of what needs to get done before this baby comes!

Each challenge made me think. I guess my favorite was pack your bag. I actually went home last ngiht and said son can mommy borrow your laptop for when i go to the hospital he said of course.  I just never thought about it before. They were fun exercises to help you see what all you will need

I loved the challenge. Maybe because I already had all of it done since I'm at the end of my pregnancy pretty much.

I agree. And it was all about buy, buy, buy! It seemed like free market research and pressure for consumerism for baby product companies. There wasn't a single day on getting emotionally ready, financially ready, parenting styles, what fueled your decision to bf/ff, do you have a birth plan, are you up to speed on carseat safety, what to think about baby proofing...

I liked all of them! I found out more of things I should or shouldn't bring or do.

It's been about 10 years since Ive had to get ready for baby, so it reminded me on stuff that I havent thought of yet. Very helpful :)

I probably would have had a bit more fun had I been further along.

Since this pregnancy is still early on, there is a LOT that I could decided to change before baby gets here. I guess my fav would be Day 7. It was interesting to see all th different things people plan on bringing to the hospital or have ready at home.
