The Third Trimester: Symptoms, Changes And Wellbeing

Posted on

The third trimester of pregnancy can be a time of great anticipation and joy for many expectant mums. However, the physical and emotional changes that your body goes through during this time can be taxing. Here, we will look at some of the common symptoms and changes that you may experience during the third trimester of pregnancy and provide advice on how to manage these.

Common symptoms during this time include fatigue and breathlessness as your body adjusts to the extra weight of the baby. This can make physical activities more difficult, so it’s important to pace yourself and not overdo it. Rest when you need to, and try to get regular, moderate exercise. This will help you keep your energy levels up and help you deal with fatigue more effectively.

During the third trimester, you may also experience a swollen abdomen and backache as your body adjusts to the growing baby. It’s important to wear comfortable and supportive clothing, and avoid activities that may put strain on your back. Gentle stretching and light exercise can also help to ease any discomfort.

Your breasts may also become larger and more tender during this time, and you may experience an increase in appetite as your body prepares for breastfeeding. It’s important to eat a balanced diet that is rich in nutrients and minerals, so that you and your baby can get all the nutrition you need.

To ensure you are getting all the essential nutrients, we recommend taking Zita West Vital Essence 3. This supplement contains essential minerals and vitamins, as well as omega 3 fatty acids, which are important for your baby’s development. We also recommend Zita West Vital DHA, which contains omega 3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) plus zinc.

Finally, it is important to remember to look after your mental health during the third trimester. While it is natural to feel excited and anxious at the same time, it is important to take time for yourself and to talk to your partner or a trusted friend about how you are feeling. A massage or a warm bath can also help you to relax. We recommend Zita West Back Ease Massage Oil, a rich blend of essential oils includes jojoba oil which moisturizes your skin without leaving an oily residue. We also recommend Zita West Preconditioning Down Under from 34 weeks of pregnancy. This rich combination of natural plant oils into the tissues of the perineum daily to help keep the perineal tissue flexible, supple and elastic to reduce the risk of tearing and help to improve recovery time.

The third trimester of pregnancy can be a time of great physical and emotional changes. To manage these symptoms and changes, it is important to get regular, moderate exercise, wear comfortable clothing, eat a balanced diet. It is also important to look after your mental health, take time for yourself, and talk to someone if necessary.
