just relax and enjoy let it take its course with whatever pregnancy fun you get like morning sickness, mood swings, cravings,etc.. dont sweat about these things everyone gets atleast one or maybe all there is not much you can do oh and always listen to your dr, have any questions call your dr that is what they are there for to make sure you are doing what you are suppose to do to keep your baby and yourself as healthy and safe as possible. even if you think your questions are stupid its best if you know then sit there and wonder.. congrats and enjoy the baby will be here before you know it.

Well firstly, congratulations! Just make sure you rest when you are tired, eat properly etc. Take a preg vitamin if you want, I used Blackmores Pregnancy and Breastfeeding. A couple things I found- I bought way too much baby powder- I hardly even use it! Buy lots of nappies and wipes in bulk- you will save money and you will go through heaps when they are first born, and this is something you will always use. If you know what you are having I would stock up on these when they are on special, not so much newborn but infant and crawler nappies. Dont worry about buying baby wipes x 60, buy them in the boxes of x 360, or whatever brand you chose. Doesn't matter if they are sitting in the cupboard for ages. One thing people always said to me was not to really worry about buying clothes - but I that is one thing I am glad I did buy cos my son was small when he was born and stayed in 0000 for at least 4-6 weeks, and we mostly received gifts of socks etc, not clothes. I also stocked up on clothes 000, 00, 0. Very handy as we live in a small town and baby clothes aren't cheap here.
