10 Symptoms I’m Experiencing in the Third Trimester

By Devan McGuinness |

I am in the countdown zone getting ready for baby’s arrival. I can’t believe that in about 8 weeks, I will have a little one in my arms. After all the losses and infertility, I was worried it would never come, but am so thankful baby boy is growing well and my body is doing what it should to help him grow to a healthy size.

I haven’t had the easiest of pregnancies so far, but I wan’t expecting to. If I had to compare this one to my previous full-term pregnancies, I would say this was the most challenging one. From symptoms that never went away as expected, to kidney issues, and concerns about the health of the baby and pregnancy, I have had a lot more challenges that I didn’t expect, but am getting through.

Now that I’m in the third trimester, there are some symptoms I am experiencing that I’ve had this whole pregnancy and others that are new to this trimester. If you’re heading into the third trimester soon, here’s a heads up on what you may expect.

Click through and read 10 symptoms I am experiencing now that I am in the third trimester:
