Your Developments

  • The volume of amniotic fluid decreases to make room for the growing baby.
  • Heartburn often occurs as the stomach emptying time is delayed causing a burning sensation in the throat.

Pregnancy To Do's

  • If you are experiencing heartburn, try drinking milk between small, frequent meals. This problem will disappear soon after baby's birth.
