Weight loss: Try keeping a food journal, writing down every single thing you eat (even little bites or tastes). If you can find someone to exercise with (a trainer, or even just a friend), you will push yourself harder than if you're working out on your own. Talk to your parents about wanting to lose weight. Ask them to help you by preparing healthy meals that are low in saturated fat and calories. ...Read more

Sometimes a small hole in the sack can be intermittently plugged by the babies head like a cork. This could cause ongoing leakage. You should call your prenatal care provider's office in the morning so that this can be rechecked. Call sooner if you're experiencing fever or any vaginal bleeding. ...Read more
