Welcome to the third and final trimester! Your ribs, diaphragm, and stomach are beginning to be compressed as your uterus grows. You may also be beginning to experience some swelling in your legs, feet or ankles. This is known as edema and is the very common accumulation of fluid in the tissues. It can be a good idea to avoid standing or sitting for long periods of time, another trick is to elevate your legs at the end of the day. Your baby is continuing to grow rapidly, his brain is developing and lungs maturing increasing his chance of survival if he was to be born this early.
Thinking ahead, and doing some research and planning for baby's arrival can go a long way in helping you feel prepared.
Baby showers don't all have to be pastel toned, and sacherinne. These ideas are truly golden setting the scene for an elegant get together.
The smallest feet make the biggest footprints in our hearts.
