What to expect

I've been going to some group classes for young pregnant girls but it has been cancelled for the last couple of weeks and isn't definite that it will start up again.

I have the midwifes number if I really need anything but was just wandering if there was any general tips/ things to expect in the later stages of pregnancy.

I'm currently 20 weeks and don't really know anyone else who is pregnant so anything is useful.

Thank you x

Hi Blonde. Congrats!
1. Pregnancy pillow or v shaped pillow, I found sleeping very uncomfortable and this helped a bit, also handy for when baby comes.
2. Stock up on the Gaviscon if you haven't already, I've never suffered from indigestion/heart burn but really suffered around 7 months haven't suffered since though. (also ice pops helped!! Went through about 10 boxes!!) every one is different but it's a good excuse to eat as many as you want!
Hope this helps, if I think of anything else will let you know. Hopefully you will get more tips.

Ooh and also, baths really help with aches and pains of later pregnancy, I used to have 2 a day! He used to kick me really hard which is great but also painful in some cases he really had a grudge against my ribs!
