Pregnancy Calendar - Week 31
Time to relax and take a deep breath ... if you can. By now your baby is putting pressure on your internal organs making it harder to breathe.
You may find you suffer from leg cramps during pregnancy, and this is often attributed to dietary and electrolyte imbalances, general fatigue and from the pressure being placed on your nerves by your expanding uterus.
You may also find you need to wee more regularly, again due to the pressure of your baby but at this stage of your pregnancy the pressure is on your bladder as space continues to become limited.
It is important to continue building the bond with your baby, and this goes for the father as well. Singing, talking and reading nursery rhymes are all wonderful ways for your baby to get to know the voices of the most important people in its life ... its parents.
