My wife has just entered the third trimester. Would you have any suggestions for her overall well-being? Also, what would be an ideal midnight snack?

Discuss any concerns both of you may be having with regard to the upcoming new arrival. Have a list of things to prepare so that neither of you will feel too overwhelmed. Sleep is important to her so see if she is sleeping comfortably and getting ample rest every night as this will also contribute to her mental well being. As for midnight snacks, slices of fruits with yogurt would be a good option. If she prefers something crunchy, a handful of nuts (such as pistachio or almond) is great as well. Take care! Can see that you are a sweet and thoughtful husband. Let her know that you are supporting her every step of the way will definitely help keep her relaxed too. :)

What I would suggest is to be sensitive and reassuring. She may start worrying more about the weight gain and become more conscious of her growing bump. Continue to shower her with hugs and kisses and constantly let her know that you still find her beautiful (or even more beautiful now). Go for walks with her as it could help ease some physical discomfort such as back aches. Midnight snack I would recommend hard boiled egg, veggie sticks (like carrots) or apple/pear slices with cottage cheese, or a bowl of cereal with milk. :)

Just keep her relaxed, happy and healthy before she gives birth :) Also, if there are errands that needs to be ran before the baby comes, help her out with that cos it will probably be difficult for her to move around like before. As for the midnight snack, opt for something protein rich as this will keep your wife full all the way till morning. Try foods like low-fat yoghurt, nuts, whole-wheat toast with peanut butter, turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread.
