It has been 31 weeks into my pregnancy. I have been helped by my mother till now about everything I needed to know. Now I need to learn on my own, she was taking care of all the doctor’s appointments and everything else. I am hopeless without her, but sadly she has shifted very far. Could you like suggest everything I should be doing from now onwards. I have not had any trouble with the pregnancy so far. I hope would not for the next couple of weeks either. When do we start getting contractions? How painful are contractions, is it different for every woman?
