At this point, your breasts might leak a fluid that is colostrum. To help you deal with the mess, you can buy breast pads.

If you find yourself having trouble sleeping at night, then there are simple ways to help you get a good night’s rest. You can do some light exercise, drink lots of water, and avoid caffeine.
It would be best for you to eat around 500 extra calories each day to make sure that your baby is getting enough nourishment from you. However, the actual number can vary from woman to woman, so asking your doctor would be best.
Additionally, you will need to make sure the majority of the calories you are consuming are from healthy foods. It is also recommended that you make sure you get enough calcium each day to avoid a low birth weight and pregnancy-induced hypertension.
Your belly will be very visible to everyone, and people may tell you some myths or “pamahiins” that you do not have to follow. One example of a pamahiin is that your baby will become stubborn if you drink soft drinks while you are pregnant. That is not true. However, staying away from soft drinks can be a good idea since it is high in sugar and caffeine.
You may also want to check your airline’s policies if you are planning to fly. It is not too late for you to fly, however, each airline will have different policies regarding pregnant passengers.
