Pregnancy Week 30

The most effective way to do it, is to do it. --Amelia Earhart


What happens to you?

To decrease the strain on your body as your center of gravity continues to change, try to remember to stand properly. Good posture can actually make your body feel better.

One of the things that you can do to help maintain your energy levels and to increase your stamina for the birth is to exercise. Don't overdo it, though, especially if you haven't exercised before this week. Try walking at a moderate pace or swimming short distances. Simply stretching a few times a day may help you have feel better and reduce the numbers of aches and pains you're feeling.

What happens to the baby?

The baby is very aware of the surroundings. It notices the Braxton Hicks contractions you may be having, but is not adversely affected by them. It can see light and dark depending on the mother's environment.
