At your checkups, the doctor or midwife will check on the growth of your baby and ask if your baby is moving or kicking regularly. You may find that you need to urinate (pass water) more often as your baby’s head is pushing on your bladder. When you laugh, sneeze or cough, you may lose a small amount of urine. It is important that you do pelvic floor tightening exercises.
Around 4 in every 100 babies remain in the breech position at the end of the pregnancy. A breech position means the baby has the bottom down instead of the head. Measuring about 44 cm in length and weighing around 2.5 kg, your baby is now almost fully developed.
