Your Developments

  • Your joints and spine are softer than usual so you will need to take extra care when moving things around. Get someone to help where possible.
  • Avoid heavy lifting.
  • Swollen ankles may be caused by the pressure of the uterus on the large veins returning blood to the heart.
  • This can induce water retention.

Pregnancy To Do's

  • Elevate legs so they are level with your hips once or twice a day for an hour or so.
  • Sleep on your left side.
