Third trimester (27 to 40weeks) Pregnancy care tips

Must read - What Are The Foods To Avoid During Pregnancy?

  • In this trimester, learn about all the options of delivery - drug-free vaginal delivery, vaginal delivery with pain relief, and cesarean section.
  • Pack a bag for the hospital or birthing center
  • You may feel the need to take naps the way you did in the first trimester because of prolactin.
  • Start shopping for items you'll need in the hospital (nursing bras, nightgown, baby clothes, and car seat) and at home (diapers, wipes, etc.).
  • Know about the cord blood storage.
  • If you experience sudden, rapid weight gain of more than five pounds a week and facial and hand swelling, with or without headache, contact your health care professional immediately.
  • Take some time off at the end of the day for you to soak in the bath.
  • Say no to weekend engagements if you feel the need to rest and get a good night’s sleep.
  • It is really important to stay hydrated throughout your pregnancy, especially at the end.
  • As your baby continues to grow, your organs get compressed and pushed upwards, making heartburn and acid reflux symptoms much stronger. To help combat this, try eating several small meals during the day.
  • If you are hoping to have a smooth and snag free labor or if you are just feeling unsure about the whole process, taking a birth class is a good idea.
  • Get maternity pictures.
  • This is such a special time and it is worth documenting
  • Set a music that will help you to pass the time and enhance your coping skills during your labor and delivery.

We advise you to follow all these during pregnancy to enjoy your pregnancy and mommyhood to the fullest.

Best of luck for the delivery and have a safe delivery!
