Why the last week of pregnancy is the hardest?
Feeling Uncomfortable In the last month of pregnancy, the baby doesn’t just keep growing —it also changes position. 1 Your partner can feel like their belly is going to pop. The skin is stretched tight and maternity clothes won’t fit as well. This may make your partner feel big, uncomfortable, and/or discouraged.
What should I do a week before my due date?
Here’s a bucket list of 10 things to do the week before your due date.
- Spend an entire weekend reading a book, start to finish.
- Act like a tourist in your own city.
- Take a long nap, followed by a long shower.
- Get your hair blown out (or do it yourself).
- Clean your house and watch it stay that way — for days.
Which part of pregnancy goes fastest?
First trimester: key stages The fertilised egg rapidly divides into layers of cells and implants in the wall of your womb where it carries on growing. These layers of cells become an embryo, which is what the baby is called at this stage. During this trimester, your baby grows faster than at any other time.

What foods make labor easier?

When should I stop working when pregnant?
Most women can physically handle their usual workload up until about 32 to 34 weeks of pregnancy. Around this same time, many women are also shifting their mental focus from their job towards being a new mother, and that can affect the decision on when to stop working.
Which month of pregnancy is the hardest?
The first trimester of pregnancy can often be the hardest. Pregnancy hormones, extreme fatigue, nausea and vomiting, tender breasts, and perpetually needing to wee make life growing a human no easy feat.
What week is most critical in pregnancy?

How do you feel a few days before labor?
