WEEK 34 DEVELOPMENT

Does the foetus feel particularly heavy? You may be feeling tension or diffusing pain in your lower abdomen. Totally normal: your pelvic joints are loosening up, pulling on your ligaments. As your child takes up room in your uterus, you may need to urinate more often.

Your child may have already started to go down into your pelvis. He won’t get completely in place until a few days or even hours before the beginning contractions of childbirth.

NUTRITION

Although it may be inconvenient, do not restrict your fluid intake to try to not have to use the bathroom so often. Water, about 8 glasses each day, is necessary to keep you hydrated, and for your child’s bath of amniotic fluid and the extra blood that you are making.

TIPS
