    Your Pregnancy Week by Week


    Stage Details 

     As you enter the third trimester,your baby is growing rapidly and getting ready to explore the outer world. As you enter 28th week of pregnancy, the heartbeat of your baby becomes so strong that it can be easily heard by putting ears on mother’s tummy. Brain system is developed enough to direct rhythmic breathing movements and control body temperature. 

    Pregnancy Symptoms

    On entering 28th week of pregnancy, you can probably experience some of the late-pregnancy discomforts like:  

    • Stretch marks: You may have stretch marks on stomach, breasts and other body areas. These are due to stretching of skin to accommodate baby.  
    • Other symptoms: Even at this stage of your pregnancy, other symptoms like sleeping discomfort, leaking breasts and body aches may continue.  

    Exercise and physical activity: 

    • To help alleviate back pain, make adjustments in your daily routine.  
    • Whenever you sit, use a footrest to elevate your feet slightly.  
    • If you need to stand for a long period of time, put one foot on a small stool to take some pressure off your lower back.
