Eighth Month of Pregnancy

Third Trimester Pregnancy Symptoms

Your Body - You may feel rather uncomfortable around the eighth month of pregnancy and feel like you're ready to have the baby. Heartburn and indigestion become apparent. You may feel short of breath. The tired feelings you had early in pregnancy return. If you have trouble sleeping, place a pillow between your knees and sleep on your side. If your baby disturbs you by kicking while you sleep, turn to the other side. Most babies favor one side over the other.


Your Baby - If your baby is born prematurely, he has a good chance for survival. You may feel a foot up around your ribcage. He is about 16 inches long and weighs approximately four pounds.
