Wanted to add, about pregnancy tests. One of the most common questions I've noticed is people asking when they're effective.

Urine Pregnancy tests are accurate around 19-27 days after intercourse. They are all around 98-99% accurate (when used correctly).

Blood pregnancy tests can be done as soon as 10 days after intercourse and are bascially 100% effective.

The Third Trimester  

You are almost there!  

You will probably start seeing your doctor a lot more. They will make sure you do not develop Gestational diabetes (diabetes which is only present during pregnancy), anemia or other typical pregnancy illnesses.  

Your body has been going through a lot, so you will probably be swollen, tired, irritable and waddling around like a duck. But don't worry, you baby will be in your arms soon!  

Now would be a good time to start gathering a labor bag. It should have extra clothes, deodorant, tooth brush, comb, a book, baby clothes and any medical papers or medication you need. As well, write down a list of emergency contact numbers (family, spouse, etc etc).

Something should probably be added about Braxton Hicks contractions (a.k.a "practice" contractions).

BabyCenter has a decent article on the subject.

If it's in there and I overlooked it, just knock me upside the head.
