The third trimester

8th month of pregnancy

Changes in the mother

The 8th month is when your maternity leave starts and ante-natal classes start. You can start to get ready for going to hospital, by getting your things and that of the baby's together.

Changes to the foetus

The baby turns and gets into position for labour: head down, pressed against the neck of the uterus. The heart is completely formed. Lungs are mature. The foetus measures approximately 45cm and weighs around 2.2 kg.
