You may look pregnant now. You will soon need maternity (or larger sized) clothes. You may want to wear lighter weight clothes. It is normal to be warmer and perspire more when you are pregnant.

Eating well is important to make sure that both you and your baby gain the proper amount of weight.

You may have darker areas on your face, stomach, or other places on your skin. These are normal. They will go away after your baby is born.

Questions I want to ask:

1. When will I first feel my baby move?

2. How can you tell that my baby is growing normally?

3. Where can I go for childbirth education classes?
