hi welcome to HCM. After the 8th month of pregnancy, you'll need to visit your doctor every two weeks for prenatal care check-ups. You should gain one pound a week this month. Call your doctor right away if you have:

* Blurry vision, or spots before your eyes
* Bleeding or a gush of fluid from your vagina
* A noticeable decrease in your baby's movements
* Cramps, stomach pains, or a dull backache
* More than five contractions in one hour
* A feeling that the baby is pushing down

Stronger contractions may start this month. Your breasts may leak colostrum (the fluid that will feed your baby until your milk comes in) as they begin to produce milk. You may have trouble sleeping as your belly grows and your discomfort increases.

Try putting a pillow between your knees to align your spine. You may also develop shortness of breath as the baby crowds your lungs. The baby may also crowd your stomach so eating five or six smaller meals during the day can help. The top of your uterus now lies just under your rib cage.
