Week 26 - Discomfort and What To Do About It

You may experience an increased level of discomfort over the next several weeks and months. For many women, the end of pregnancy is uncomfortable due to gas pains, bloating, swelling (edema), and, of course, a cumbersome belly.

Most back pain is caused by the stretching of your ligaments and pressure from your expanding uterus. Some women experience sciatica, which is a sharp pain in their lower back and legs. This is usually not bothersome in the morning, but the pain can increase later in the day, depending on your level of activity. Try some gentle stretching to relieve the pain and help you relax. But if your pain becomes significant, tell your doctor right away.
