Last Trimester (Week 28-31)
What your baby's up to
Your baby's permanent teeth have developed and are "waiting" in his gums, underneath their baby teeth. Your baby very aware of the surroundings and his eyelids will open and close. He will even look around and turn toward light. We tend to think of the uterus as a dark place but the uterus actually can be light and dark depending on your environment. Your baby weighs almost three pounds now and is approximately 15.5 inches long.
You may be able to distinguish sleep and wake cycles in your baby. Although it usually seems as if the baby wants to sleep while you are awake and vice versa at night. This is not indicative of a sleepless newborn. Your voice is not only heard by your baby, but is also recognized. Also, he has a grip so strong it is capable of gripping onto your finger. At this point, your baby may be practicing nursing as he sucks his thumb. He has lungs that are capable of breathing air, although medical help may be needed if your baby is born now, and 9 out of 10 babies born now will survive.
About you and your body
Although you may not feel like it, exercise is a great way to keep up your energy and stamina. Taking a nice leisurely walk or swimming a couple laps of the pool can help more then you think. Also, your posture is very important to your comfort so remember to continue practicing the mechanics of good posture. Sleeping may also be a problem now but remember to use pillows to prop or support your legs and belly. Also, sleeping on your left side may help as well.
You may find yourself with a nasty case of heartburn from time to time. This is caused as the uterus grows and displaces some of your internal organs. However, don't let it get you down. To help, remain seated or upright for at least 30 to 45 minutes after eating a meal or, if heartburn is interfering with sleep, try sleeping in a recliner. Some women report eating smaller, more frequent meals helps, as well as staying away from spicy, greasy or heavy foods. Remember to discuss with your doctor taking anything for your heartburn, even over the counter medications.Gradually Medical Checkup5/9/2005(Monday) Week 28
