As your baby starts to put more pressure on the pelvis, you might experience some back pain and if your baby’s back is pressed against yours, then the backache will be more pronounced. A gentle back massage can work wonders to give you some relief. Get your partner to give you one!
You might also notice some swelling especially around the ankles and feet. If your blood pressure is normal, then this is just due to the restricted blood flow to and from your legs. Raise your feet up against a surface now and then, for relief.
