What's happening with mum 

As the big day approaches many women, especially first time mothers have probems sleeping especially when their dreams turn into nightmares. This is normal and is your mind's way of dealing with the anxiety and worries you may be experiencing about labour and the birth of your baby. If you are unduly concerned and overly tired from these episodes keeping you awake, talk to your midwife or doctor.

Other ideas to help you to get a better nights sleep is to make sure you empty your bladder before you go to bed and try to sleep on your left side as this alleviates the pressure on blood vessels and keep your blood circulation healthy.

 

What's happening with baby

By this week most of the important organs and functions of your baby are now complete and the next couple of weeks are all about weight gain. Baby's kidneys are already developed and the liver has started to process waste.

While bones and muscle are strengthening, baby's skull remains soft and pliable, making it easier for it to squeeze through the birth canal.

If you are 35 pregnant your due date is from Wednesday, 4 January 2023 through Tuesday, 10 January 2023.
