Above all, the seat belt is your number one way to stay safe. No matter how uncomfortable it may be, it must always be worn—and worn correctly. Remember the lap strap should be under your belly—especially during those last few months—and over your hips. The shoulder belt should run across your body and not off to the side. If you need to and are able to, adjust the shoulder height so that the belt is able to fit snugly on your body.
