This is the stage where you feel heavier and bigger. And you can no longer see your toes… or anything down there, for that matter haha 😛
Also, being in Perth summer – it is hot. Thank god my apartment has good air-conditioning and a pool downstairs. Winning.
Things that happened to me in the 3rd trimester… please note, everyone is different so this may or may not happen to you!
- Carpel Tunnel
- Swollen fingers and feet (my fingers were not as noticeable, only noticeable to me because I couldn’t fit my wedding ring!)
- Feeling out of breath
As the baby takes up a lot of space, it’s hard to eat large amounts of food. So it’s better to eat smaller portions, more often (if you can handle it).
For me, I only made it to week 36… Baby Z came early! More on that in a later post.
