With that baby growing inside your belly, you probably feel a lot of foetal activity. This SuperBottoms - India's #1 Reusable Cloth Diaper Brand for Babies article will help you understand what happens in the third trimester of pregnancy, what not to do in your third trimester of pregnancy, what to do in the third trimester for normal delivery, etc. and how to prepare for the big day.

So, prepare your hospital bag, throw a baby shower, buy the first set of cloth diapers, and be ready for your little bundle of joy to arrive.

3rd Trimester of Pregnancy Symptoms:

When you reach the last leg of your pregnancy, the third trimester, you can expect changes to happen in your body as your bump gets more prominent than ever. What to expect in 3rd trimester of pregnancy, 3rd trimester of pregnancy symptoms or pre-labour symptoms include:

1. Abdominal aches: You may feel cramps or sharp pain as your ligaments start to accommodate your growing bump. Just breathe in, and breathe out!

2. Fatigue: Staying active, following a 3rd-trimester pregnancy diet, and getting good sleep will solve this, pinky promise!

3. Heartburn: In the last few weeks of pregnancy, your uterus will push your stomach and its contents upward, causing that persistent burn. Talk to your doctor if it gets unbearable.

4. Braxton Hicks contractions: Your body's way of preparing for labour; you'll start to feel these irregular practice contractions now until actual labour starts.

5. Varicose veins: You may notice these bulging veins (including hemorrhoids) in your lower body due to all the extra blood you're pumping. The good news: If you didn't have them before pregnancy, they'd likely disappear after you deliver.

6. Stretch marks: Your skin is stretched to its limit. A moisturizer to minimise their appearance.

7. Backache: One of the silent symptoms of pregnancy 3rd trimester is severe backaches. Put your feet up and rest in good positions to say bye-bye to them!

8. Crazy dreams: You could blame your hormones for those vivid dreams as you near your due date. Take them with a grain of salt and have fun swapping stories with a loved one.

9. Lack of bladder control: Your daily Kegels regimen will be your best friend to get rid of frequent urination.

With all these 3rd trimester of pregnancy symptoms and more weighing on you, just try to keep your eye on the prize: your beautiful baby, whom you'll meet in just a few weeks!

Preparing for Delivery:

Time is nearing! Get ready.

1. Prenatal Fitness: Prenatal yoga is a great way to train for labour and enhance the pregnancy experience. You can opt for online classes to practise yoga from the comfort of your home. Labour is one of the most physical things you'll ever do and asanas help build strength and stamina and improve circulation for the same. Keep track of your foetal movement while watching your weight. It's safe to continue pregnancy-safe third trimester pregnancy exercises up until your due date.

2. Breathing exercises: Breathing exercises in the third trimester of pregnancy exercise like Pranayama help manage the pain of contractions. At the same time, meditation can improve the ability to relax and concentrate, which would come in handy at delivery. These 3rd trimester pregnancy exercises help you to focus on the present moment and maintain calm, balance the body's energy flows, sleep becomes more effortless, and moodiness is less intense.

3. Pack your hospital bag: You might have active labour signs at 37 weeks, so it is better to be prepared in time. Depending on what your hospital provides for you and your baby, you must pack a hospital bag.

4. Cloth diapers and baby wipes: Try SuperBottoms Newborn UNO Cloth Diaper and SuperBottoms Organic Cloth Wipes that are made of GOTS-certified 100% organic cotton and are soft and gentle on your baby's skin.

5. Nursing bra and nursing pads for yourself: For a discreet fit, turn to SuperBottoms Dry Feel Nursing Pads which are waterproof and come with a SuperDryFeel™ layer for uber comfort.

6. Cotton nappies: Try SuperBottoms Dry Feel Langot. It is breathable, semi-waterproof and mess-free!

7. Diaper liners: Carry some SuperBottoms Easy Clean Top Sheets to place over the UNO Dry Feel Pad to keep the baby's bum dry after using creams/ lotions or any other medications on your baby.

8. Hospital Bag: A good hospital bag like SuperBottoms Ergo Diaper Backpack with 16 compartments for your essentials is super spacious and convenient to carry.

Important Notes:

Parents these days bank or store their baby's umbilical cord blood because the stem cells are currently utilised or show promise in treating life-threatening and debilitating diseases. Luckily for expectant parents, cord blood can be easily collected at the baby's birth via the umbilical cord with no harm to the mother or baby and pregnancy is a great time to plan it. The healthcare provider and the cord blood bank do most of the work, so all you need to do is just plan! A few things to note:
