  • Congrats momma! i'm soo happy for you! set up an appointment with your OB and they'll start your prenatal care, which will be about once a month then as you get farther along they'll have you come in more often. get the book "What to Expect When You're Expecting" this book is a godsend! it gives you pretty much a week by week guildline on what you can expect throughout your whole pregnancy through doc. visits up to after birth. then they have a "what to expect the first year" and there are a couple others for toddlers! good luck! PM me if you need anything!

  • Make an appointment for an OB, which usually takes place about 6 weeks. Make sure to drink lots of water and to start taking prenatals if you haven't done so. Congrats :D

  • You just go about your life as usual but with monthly visits to the OB until you are almost due and then you go every week.

    I have 5 kids and never did anything different when I was pregnant.  Life just carried on.

  • no drinking/drugs/ over the counter items and no eggs with runny yolks they say deli meat is off limits as well but I don't know because I ate deli meats and my kids are fine. anyway find an OBGYN and find out your due date
