Community Questions - Third Trimester.

"Hi mums! I'm in my 3rd trimester with my second and feeling pretty 'meh' and so ready for our little one to arrive. Do you have any advice for these final weeks to enjoy the last of my pregnancy? Feel like I should be making the most of it."


Hi there! Congratulations on nearing the end of your pregnancy journey with your second little one! It's completely normal to feel a mix of emotions as you enter the final weeks, from excitement and anticipation to perhaps a bit of impatience or discomfort. Here are some tips to help you make the most of these precious moments and enjoy the last of your pregnancy:


1. Self-Care: Prioritise self-care and pamper yourself during these final weeks. Take time to relax with a warm bath, indulge in a prenatal massage, or enjoy a quiet moment with your favourite book or movie. Listen to your body and give yourself permission to rest when needed.

2. Bonding Time: Take advantage of this time to bond with your bump and connect with your baby. Spend a few moments each day talking, singing, or even just gently rubbing your belly. Consider keeping a pregnancy journal to document your thoughts, feelings, and special moments throughout this journey.

3. Quality Time with Your Family: Cherish these moments with your partner and any older children as you prepare to welcome a new addition to the family. Plan special outings, family activities, or simply enjoy quiet moments together at home. Create memories that you'll treasure for years to come.

4. Capture Memories: Consider scheduling a maternity photoshoot to capture the beauty and essence of your pregnancy. These photos will serve as cherished keepsakes and reminders of this special time in your life. Get creative with poses, locations, and props to make the photoshoot uniquely yours.

5. Prepare for Baby's Arrival: Use these final weeks to tie up loose ends and prepare for your baby's arrival. Set up the nursery, wash baby clothes, assemble baby gear, and pack your hospital bag. Having everything in place will help ease any last-minute stress and allow you to focus on welcoming your little one.

6. Stay Active: Stay active and engaged in activities that make you feel good. Gentle exercise, such as prenatal yoga or walking, can help relieve discomfort, boost your mood, and prepare your body for labor. Just remember to listen to your body and avoid overexertion.

7. Connect with Other Mums: Reach out to other mums, whether in-person or through online communities, who can relate to what you're going through. Share your experiences, concerns, and excitement about the upcoming arrival of your baby. Surrounding yourself with support and camaraderie can make the journey feel less daunting and more enjoyable.

Remember, every pregnancy journey is unique, so do what feels right for you and your baby. Trust your instincts, embrace the changes, and savor these final weeks as you eagerly await the arrival of your little one. Wishing you a smooth and joyful transition into motherhood once again!
