look for classes on pregnancy or head to the local bookstore to
educate you about what might happen during this time.
Special needs for the week
With all the growing baby is doing, you need to pay special attention
to your diet. Try to add an extra serving of vegetables each day to
start sending vitamins to your growing little one.
Special concerns for the week
With all of the growth that is occurring, it's a good idea to make sure
that you're taking a prenatal vitamin as directed by your doctor.
Special tip for mom
Start a journal about your feelings about your pregnancy. This can be
a confusing time as well as a time of celebration - write it all down.
As your child grows up, you might even want to share this special book with them.
