Doctor Tips, Weeks 14-26

Week 21

Seatbelts are just as important for pregnant moms as everyone else—but make sure you’re wearing it right. More in week 21. 

As your belly expands, you have probably had to make some adjustments in your clothing. But what about your seatbelt?

  1. This is one of the only memories I was actually able to keep up with during my 2nd pregnancy! With my 1st, I kept a pregnancy journal of sorts with things that were happening, doctor’s notes from each appointment, belly pictures each week, nursery updates… With #2, #1 was in full-blown toddler mode, so belly pictures were my only documented memory. I’m glad I made myself continue that tradition!
