What mom is feeling
If you're feeling a little tired of talking about your impending
motherhood, ask your friends to take you out for a girls night in -
movies and munchies - and put pregnancy on the list of things to not talk about.
Specific needs for the week
Make sure that your doctor tests for Group B strep as well as any other
birth defects that you might be concerned about. If they can't test
you, you can send blood samples to a private lab.
Specific concerns for the week
If your baby is in a breech position, your doctor may attempt to shift it
to a more favorable position for delivery. However, this doesn't
always work as baby can move right back.
Special tip for mom
Sometimes a pregnancy can make the mom and partner less likely to
talk about romantic things. Schedule a date night to reestablish your
romantic relationship - without the wine, of course.
