Not only is it a new year, but you’re having a new baby too! This is going to be a sweet 2018 for you. The sweet baby snuggles coming your way in this next year will be moments to cherish for a lifetime. Congratulations on your pregnancy. Now that you’re carrying a baby in your belly, you may be experiencing some physical challenges related to your pregnancy as well.
