Third Trimester Pregnancy

A third trimester pregnancy bring its own unique joys, concerns and challenges. As the due date gets closer, it is exciting to dream about what life with a new baby will be like. Unfortunately, you may also be increasingly uncomfortable and have difficulty eating or sleeping during the last few months. An enjoyable aspect of a third trimester pregnancy is the bonding you and your partner do with your baby. You can now tell when your baby has the hiccups, is changing positions and may even play a little if you gently push on a baby foot. Keep talking and singing so your little one gets used to your unique voice.

One of the most important things to do in your third trimester pregnancy is to make sure you and your partner have all the information you need to be great parents. Consider newborn care classes, breastfeeding classes, infant CPR and of course, the ever-popular labor and delivery preparation.
