Pregnancies generally last for about 40 weeks. These weeks then get divided into three trimesters. Each trimester brings many changes, and the third trimester is physically and mentally excruciating for women. However, the gift, in the end, is worth the pain.
Gathering in-depth information about the third trimester can lower your stress and overthinking patterns, which you might experience in the last few days of your pregnancy. In this stage, you may be eager to know about your baby’s development in your womb.
During the third trimester, the bones of your little munchkin are almost completely created. This is the time for your baby to start opening and closing its eyes and notice the light. The body of your little one will now start to store minerals, such as calcium and iron, for future use.
In this stage, at the end of week 36, the newborn has to be in a position with the head towards the vagina. If the newborn is not in this state, the doctor might need to move the baby or try a cesarean section (which requires medical sutures) in case of breech birth.
Some questions may pop up in your mind at this important stage. So, what should you avoid in the third trimester?
As apprehension grows, scared mothers will get nightmares about childbirth, and they turn more and more intense at times. To decrease fear, meet other moms who have great birth anecdotes to share. Listen to some soft music and spend time with your dear ones.
