Pregnancy: 3rd Trimester Part 1

In this video, Dr. Isabel Blumberg explains what you can expect from your own body and your baby’s during the third trimester. This is often referred to as the home stretch and takes place between weeks 28-40. During this time it is important to continue maintaining a healthy diet, continue taking prenatal vitamins rich in folic acid and avoiding unpasteurized food. Exercise is OK but try low impact activities like walking or swimming. If you are having trouble getting to sleep, try lying on your side with pillows in between your knees.
