What is happening to your baby:
- Vernix (a white, cheesy substance) forms on your baby’s skin to protect it.
- A girl’s ovaries contain primitive egg cells.
- Permanent tooth buds form behind the milk tooth buds.
What is happening to you:
- Sleeping may become more uncomfortable.
- Heartburn may increase because your uterus pushes up against your stomach.
- Your skin may become dry and itchy.
What to do:
- Try not to sleep on your back as the weight of the baby and uterus can compress the inferior vena caver, which takes blood from your lower body to the heart. You may become dizzy, sweaty and have palpitations.
- For advice on how to beat insomnia, speak to your doctor.
