Oh, Baby! Free Pregnancy Countdown Printable

By | January 13, 2015

I’m not going to lie to you guys, I’ve been sick a lot of the last 8-10 weeks. And my motivation is lower than low. As in zero.

So, I haven’t done much of anything that can be qualified as progress, unless you count laundry and occasionally paying bills or unloading the dishwasher. Nope. I don’t count those either.

Anyway, a couple weeks ago, we picked up a few clip boards from our local Salvation Army thrift store with the idea of using them for various work plans in the garage. But when we got them home, I snagged them for a different project.

New wall art!

Living Room Clipboard Collage 2

Just as a refresher, here’s how that wall looked before.


Living Room Clock

I’d been wanting a place to hang changeable prints I could them for the holidays and other events. This was a nearly free way to do that. And, it was easy enough a tired, cranky, sickly pregnant lady could tackle it on my own.

I found a couple of these prints online. Here‘s the hot air balloon one. And here‘s the together one.

The other two, I designed myself and would love to share with you!

Even though this baby is keeping me in bed a lot of the time, I’m still over the moon excited to be a mom. And I’m starting to count the weeks. I want to meet Beanie (that’s what we’re calling baby since we’re not going to find out the gender) more than I want to eat ice cream. I also want to move past stage of gagging several times a day and wishing I could eat without having to actually swallow food.

So, I created this cute countdown and added it to our new clipboard collage.

Pregnancy Countdown Printable

The numbers can be written directly on the paper, but I’m using post it notes to avoid having to print a new one each time. Or you could be super fancy and laminate it to use dry erase markers.


Like all my printables, you can download (just right click on the above image and select “save image as”) the above files to print at your own leisure (as long as you don’t sell it to others!)

You can find the other print here.

How did you countdown the weeks to meeting your baby? Did you wait to find out the gender? We’re in the minority there, but so excited to be surprised on delivery day!

*Remember, this free printable is available for personal use only. Selling this design as your own isn’t allowed. It’s also not nice. Thanks!

      The clock has been relocated, temporarily to the mantle. We’re still trying to find a new home for it. 🙂

    Congratulations on your pregnancy!!!! Being a mom is the best and you will LOVE it!! We have two little girls and found out the gender as soon as possible with both. I totally admire people who can wait and think the surprise would be out of this world, but unfortunately I don’t know if I could ever do that!!

    Excited to follow along your pregnancy! I was sick until 12 weeks with both my girls and then felt better. Hoping you feel better soon!!

    Did I miss something?? Just now finding out you’re expecting! Congrats! Oh I’m so sick when I’m expecting too!! Puked so much before getting out of bed! It seriously is like stomach flu but must eat 24/7. The sickness died down a bit around 25 weeks (5 mos prego) for me.
    When are you due?

      Thank you!! Glad you can understand the sickness struggle. It’s hard because you want to feel so happy and excited, but really just feel like laying down and trying not to get sick. I’m already feeling better though, so I hope that means the worst is over. I’m due July 15…but we’ll see if baby actually comes then or not!

    I just did a normal countdown—count up I guess lol, I would say that I was “blank weeks along” when I was pregnant. We found out once I hit about 20ish weeks I think. We thought it would be easier to buy things for the baby’s room if we knew what it was. I was one of the extremely lucky ones that didn’t have morning sickness, hope yours goes away soon! I’m sure with our next one I’ll be completely different, as long as I don’t get HELLP syndrome again. That’s scary stuff, but we caught it right at the beginning, so even though my son had to be born early, and be in the NICU for a month, he was perfectly healthy :).
