Your baby rapidly is losing her wrinkled, strange look, and his skeleton is hardening at this stage. The bones in her skull aren't fused together, which allows them to move and slightly overlap, therefore making it a lot easier for her to fit through the birth canal.
The pressure on the head during birth is so intense that many babies are birthed with a cone-head–like shape. These bones do not completely fuse until early adulthood, they can grow as his brain and other tissue expands during infancy and childhood.
A lot of things tends to change as your baby fills out even more of your belly. Getting an easy and comfortable position to sit or sleep becomes a challenging task.
The feeling of some achiness and even numbness in your wrists, fingers and hands might arise. Just like many other tissues in your body, those in your wrist can retain fluid, which can increase pressure in the carpal tunnel, a bony canal in your wrist.
Nerves that run through this carpal tunnel may end up pinched, creating numbness; tingling, shooting or burning pain; or a dull ache.
Try wearing a strap to stabilize your wrist or supporting your arm with a pillow when you sleep. If your work requires repetitive hand movements, remember to stretch your hands when you take breaks – which should be frequently.
A lot of women feel sexy at this stage of pregnancy. Some adjustments should be made but many women enjoy sex during pregnancy right up until their water breaks or their labor starts.
