Pregnancy Week 27

Pregnancy Week 27

Do you have a lovely pregnancy glow?

Be thankful for any pregnancy glow you are experiencing (sorry to all those Mums out there that feel they are far from glowing!) Over the coming weeks you may find some of those early symptoms return as everything starts to get just a little bit squished.

Sleep may be starting to be disturbed as you struggle to get comfortable.  Women are now advised to avoid sleeping on your back as this can increase the risk of stillbirth.  The optimum position is to sleep on your left hand side to increase the level of oxygen and nutrients that reach the baby.  If you find that you can only sleep on your right hand side this is considered safer than sleeping on your back.

TOP TIP:  Try changing the side of the bed you sleep on as you may find it easier to sleep facing away from your partner!!
