My Body – Pregnancy Week 34
How are you feeling? Has your baby dropped yet? If you haven’t heard the term before, it refers to the process in which your baby’s head enters the birth canal to prepare for birth. For first-time mothers, look for this to happen about three weeks before delivery. If this isn’t your first time, your baby might not drop until the day before you deliver.
First-time moms – when your baby does drop, it will be noticeable! There will be a change in your abdomen. Your baby will be resting lower, which is great news for your lungs, but bad news for your bladder. You will be able to breathe easier, which might help you to get to the bathroom quicker, because your little one is now sitting on your bladder!
