The Mom:
There are many common discomforts in pregnancy. Most of these can be easily dealt with, and will pass as soon as your deliver your new bundle of joy. Here are some tips to help you manage them.

Leg Cramps
If you wake with leg cramps, flex your foot upward. This will help stretch the muscle. You may find that a hot pad or a gentle massage will also help relieve the pain. To help avoid these cramps, be sure to get some exercise daily. Also, potassium (such as eating a banana a day) is said to help ward them off.

Backaches
Once you start showing more, it's easy to let good posture go out the door. We tend to lean back to compensate for baby's weight out front. This puts extra stress on your lower back. Remember to stand straight, wear sensible shoes, lift only by bending at the knees, and sit in chairs that provide back support. You can use an extra pillow if your chair doesn't.

Vaginal Discharge
An increase in vaginal discharge during pregnancy is normal as long as it is clear and white. If you notice a smell, itchiness, or color, you may have developed an infection. It would be a good idea to let your doctor know.

You baby is entering into another rapid growth period, in fact, in the next few weeks, you can expect baby's length to double!! Baby's head is about half the length of the body now.
