Your Baby's 41st Week of Life

What's Happening with Your Baby

Around this time, your baby may surprise you by saying "mama." The sounds "mama" and "dada" are no longer repeated indiscriminately. Now your baby understands the connection.

Taking Care of Yourself

Having difficulty sticking to your exercise regime while faced with all the extra chores and a baby at your feet? Find a coach. According to Health Partners, a Minneapolis-based HMO, individuals who have someone who supports them stick with their routine longer. Think about it -- if you know your friend or partner is going to ask you how long you worked out, you may be more motivated to do it in the first place.
