Always be prepared?

Currently 10 weeks pregnant with our first. We are trying to brainstorm everything we can possibly do ahead of time to make maternity leave and the first weeks/months home with a newborn go as smoothly as possible. Some examples: buy a chest freezer and fill it with meals that can just be popped in the microwave or oven. Save up for doggie day care passes to get our dogs out of the house and tired out in the beginning.
Veteran parents, please enlighten us as to anything and everything else we can be doing to help us get through the acclimation period!

I know it might seem super early to start thinking about these things, but I'm a planner, and if I can get stuff done in pieces way in advance it will all be less overwhelming for me. Thanks!
