You have made it to the final months of your pregnancy. By now, your baby is really starting to look like a baby, with hair and plump skin.
As you enter the final weeks of pregnancy, the reality of having a baby may start to set in. This is the time to settle on a name, get your household in order, set up a safe nursery, and find quality child care if needed. Doing these things in advance will allow you to focus on caring for and enjoying your new baby. You may also want to have a tour of your hospital's labour and delivery unit to get a better idea of what to expect while you are in the hospital.
During these last months, it is very important to take good care of yourself and pay attention to what your body needs. If your doctor or midwife says it is okay for you to work, don't push yourself too hard. Use the tips provided in this care sheet to ease heartburn and care for varicose veins.
Follow-up care is a key part of your treatment and safety. Be sure to make and go to all appointments, and call your doctor or nurse call line if you are having problems. It's also a good idea to know your test results and keep a list of the medicines you take.
