Do aches and pains have you dreading school? Opt for comfortable shoes for that trek across campus. Toss on a maternity support garment. Look closely at your backpack and purse -- do you really need everything in it? You're already toting extra pounds with baby and water weight, why add to it? Bring reusable cold packs to use on your aching muscles.
