My Body – Pregnancy Week 28Brought to you by
Congratulations! You made it to the third trimester!
How are you feeling? The average weight gain by week 28 is 17-24 pounds. Don't worry if yours is a little more, or less. If you have any concerns, as always, speak to your healthcare provider. In your last trimester, you should be seeing your healthcare provider every two weeks, so there should be plenty of opportunities to raise any concerns that you might have. In fact, it's a good idea to keep a pad and pen with you to jot down any questions. Having a list of questions at your appointment is a great way to make sure all of your concerns are addressed.
If any high-risk situations are detected on a routine visit, like preeclampsia, Pregnancy Induced Hypertension (PIH), gestational diabetes, or placenta previa, you may be asked to visit your physician more often.
