Pregnancy: 3rd Trimester Part 2

In this video, Dr. Isabel Blumberg explains what you can expect from your own body and your baby’s during the second half of your third trimester. You may experience something called Braxton-Hicks contractions; these are premature contractions which is your body’s way of preparing for labor. Plan to see your obstetrician once every two weeks between weeks 28-36. You’ll be tested for bacteria called GBS. If you reach your due date and your baby still hasn’t arrived, don’t worry! Only 5% of women deliver on their due date so take this extra time to continue preparations for your new arrival.
