Third trimester - The pregnant woman to her 7th month

Pregnancy Month 7

At the beginning of the third quarter, many mothers see their anxieties, fears and concerns re-emerge in near term.

Fear of childbirth itself is its origin, but also the addition of not being up to this new role of mother looming: "Will I learn to take care of my baby, do whatever it takes for him ...?"

These questions are quite normal, and it is likely that the day comes; they are resolved most naturally in the world!

In the meantime, enjoy the advice of the wise woman behind the childbirth preparation you have chosen and made him part of all your fears, ask all your questions ... If you have not already started your preparation sessions, start now!

The seventh month can be marked by the appearance of the first contractions ... your uterus contracts, sometimes several times a day. Under the effect of this contraction, your stomach is tough. Relax, breathe deeply and rapidly the stomach will regain its flexibility.

Your body prepares for childbirth. If the contractions are painful or frequent, talk to your gynecologist or midwife who follows you.

If you make too much effort, the onset of a contraction will remind you to order and tell you that we must lift off!

Baby still has plenty of space (but not for long ...), it moves and pirouettes in the amniotic fluid. Use this time to share these moments of communication with Dad or with peers, siblings: put your hands on your belly and let him do it!

You begin to know their little habits: some are active, mainly when you are lying down, resting, others are more passive and do not move very little and still others continue to move the point of hurting you or sometimes wake up at night!

His days are now punctuated by short phases of active sleep and quiet sleep.
