Helpful Tips for Mom
If you are planning to return to work after your baby is born and have not looked into childcare options yet, it is important that you do this soon! Many childcare facilities have long waiting lists, and you do not want to have to "settle" for what may be available later -- this is an important decision!
Since your baby can now see, try putting a flashlight up to your abdomen and turning it on. This may get your baby to jump or move.
Women carrying multiple babies will experience more Braxton Hicks contractions than women who are carrying just one. However, if you have more than four contractions in an hour, you should call your doctor immediately.
