Many a pregnant woman would always hope to get an ultrasound done immediately as the busybodies begin to nudge or stretch during their awake time. Yes, the foetuses also have a sleep time that the mother would, obviously, keep track of by now. Their systems have grown and they assume the characteristic womb position with the feet folded up to their chest and hands close to their face or chest.
Their growth in size would enhance the swelling on your feet and ankles. You may also develop leg cramps which would, of course, make your doctor possibly enhance your quota of calcium. The extra accumulation of fluid could cause a tingling sensation or numbness in the fingers and the palm. This is due to the compression of the bones and nerves. All that you would be required to do is to consume more water.
In fact, consumption of fluids would be very important in this phase because you may also begin to feel warmer than others. It is like if others are wearing cardigans, you would be oblivious of the cold. This is because the rising metabolic rate in your body makes your body overheated. The doctor, of course, will be checking all your health parameters on a regular basis now. But, he will also be giving you critical advise on the symptoms of pre-labour.
You do not have to panic at this stage. You may wonder why you need to prepare so early when the pregnancy is a full three months away. First, what you need to do is to keep a calm mind and remember those instructions. You will need to closely monitor any changes in your pregnancy at this stage for a simple reason. Remember that the possibilities of delivering prematurely get greatly enhanced when you are carrying twins. This is a critical aspect which needs to be noted because the twins have little space in your system.
