You've been there twice before, just remember all the things you did - just try not to give TOO much advise coz a lot of people tried that when i was pregnant & i hated it, too many people giving me advise on the basic things & treating me like i was a complete idiot! If she asks for your help, just think back to that situation/time in your pregnancy & tell her how you dealt with it. Try not to take care of her too much though coz you don't want her to think you're babying her or anything, she's having a baby so she's probably pretty capable of taking care of herself. I'd recommed just being there for her if she needs help or someone to talk too but only if she asks! I hope that doesn't sound rude, i just remember liking the idea of getting help/advise when i asked for it, rather than having everyone butting in & telling what to do all the time. Good Luck & Congrats to your sister :)
