Pregnancy Week 34

Pregnancy Week 34

And…breathe!

Starting to get ready for take off, if you have an organised baby he or she may be starting to get into the correct position and be moving lower down into the pelvis.  This is called engagement and results in you having more space in your abdomen and your lungs being less squished.  So, in theory things should feel a little more comfortable.  You may even be able to put the Gaviscon away as your heartburn settles a little.

Don’t go getting all excited – this act of gravity may well result in you needing to go to the toilet even more than before if that is at all possible!

Have you and your partner had a date night recently?  If this is your first baby these next few weeks will be the last of you being a family of two – make the most if it now.
