3rd Tri (6- 9 Months)

Where in the final stretch and you either saying “it is looking bright as I have been bonding with the baby” or “I am staying late at the office because she is driving me…”

Things to expect!

25-28 weeks

Nights are beginning to become uncomfortable; therefore she will need to take over most of the bed. You may need to make new sleeping arrangements until the baby is born.

As time goes on her pelvic floor muscles will begin to become more relaxed and she may wet her self when coughing or laughing. Encourage her to carry out her pelvic floor exercising which will help tighten the pelvic floor muscles.

If your wife is going to have stretch marks, they will begin to appear around now. You can help avoid this by rubbing oils on her stomach as many times as possible throughout the day. This can also act as bonding experience between you and your unborn child.

29-32 weeks

The weight of the growing baby can put an increasing strain on your wives back. You can help ease this by giving her back massages.

37-40 weeks

Some women experience depression in late pregnancy, this is due to a mixture of emotions about the forthcoming birth. Try to talk things over with your wife and get her to continuously express her feelings up until the baby arrives.

    No more long walks.
    I am looking forward to our new arrival and I am excited. Wife is finding it hard to sleep at nights but apart from that it is all great.

    Well it is very challenging seeing my wife in discomfort anyway.

    my wife is in week 28 as well and anything she sees she wants. If she sees some one eating an ice-cream, she wants one. It is so funny. I thought I share my little experience
    Great site!

    My wife is also 28 weeks pregnant and its great seeing the baby move…and to be honest alot more recently than ever, it is clear that room for the baby is getting smaller and the wife is getting bigger, but still looks great. I agree with king with it being challenging seeing your misses in discomfort. with regard to eating, she has started to eat loads of ice.

    I went to our first ant-natal class. I really enjoyed it. It was funny to see how every pregnant women had similar questions and concerned.

    No matter where your from, what colour you are, your family heritage etc etc. Pregnancy is just pregnancy!

    me and my wife had some concerns that the mid wife cleared, it was great!
