Pregnancy: Your Third Trimester Changes

As the baby grows, your body changes too. You may also see signs that your body is getting ready for labor. Be patient. Within a few more weeks, your baby will be born.

How You Are Changing

Your body is preparing for the birth of your baby. Some of the most common changes are listed below. If you have any questions or concerns, ask your health care provider.

  • You'll gain more weight from fluids, extra blood, and fat deposits.

  • Your breasts will grow as your body gets ready to feed the baby. They may be more tender. You may also notice a slight yellow discharge from the nipples.
