Development of the baby

Changes to the expectant mother

1. The pregnant mother's weight continues to increase.

2. As the fetus' head continues to move towards the birth canal and start to enter the pelvis, the pressure on the motherís internal organs will be reduced, making it easier for her to breathe.

3. However, the uterus will continue to exert pressure on the bladder. Hence, urination may become more often.
