Third Trimester: Physical and Emotional Changes


Most of the physical discomforts of the third trimester are caused by how large your baby and abdomen will become. As the space in your abdomen is quite full at this point, breathing may be more difficult, as well as changing positions.

As the baby puts more pressure on your bladder, you may need to urinate more. Your baby’s kicks and jabs may also cause you some discomfort and you may notice you are retaining more water in your hands, feet and face.

Hemorrhoids are common during this third trimester of pregnancy.
