What baby is feeling

Baby is recognizing sounds and will respond to them, but just because
they're making faces at you doesn't mean that they're upset
necessarily

What mom is feeling

You might start seeing a decrease in your mood swings, but this
doesn't mean that you still won't have periods of weepiness.

Specific needs for the week

In terms of sex, you might want to start switching to side positions or
with mom on top to help make movements more comfortable.

Specific concerns for the week

During climate changes, you will want to try to stay cooler than you
might normally during heat waves because of your increased blood
volume, but you will feel warmer during colder spells so you might not feel as cold as you normally would.

Special tip for mom

Great places to eat when you're pregnant? Italian, Greek and Middle
Eastern, and any vegetarian or vegan restaurants.
