BABY DEVELOPMENT
Your baby may have already started to go down into your pelvis, he won’t get completely in place until a few days or even hours before the beginning contractions of childbirth.

YOUR BODY
Does the baby feel particularly heavy? You may be feeling tension or diffusing pain in your lower abdomen. Totally normal: your pelvic joints are loosening up, pulling on your ligaments. As your baby takes up room in your uterus, you may need to urinate more often.

NUTRITION
Although it may be inconvenient, do not restrict your fluid intake to try to not have to use the bathroom so often. Water, about 8 glasses each day, is necessary to keep you hydrated, and for your baby’s bath of amniotic fluid and the extra blood that you are making.

TIPS
In the last few weeks before the birth you should stay near your doctor or your hospital. You never know when your little darling will suddenly lose patience!
