Your Developments

  • Backaches are often caused by muscles and ligaments relaxing in preparation for the stretching required in delivery, and also by the added off-center weight of the enlarged uterus.
  • The placenta is nearly 4 times as thick as it was 20 weeks ago, and weighs about 1 lb, 4 oz (570 gms).

Pregnancy To Do's

  • Back exercises, such as the 'pelvic tilt' can help strengthen back and abdomen muscles.
  • Wear comfortable low heeled shoes or flats.
  • Avoid heavy lifting.
