The belly is continuing to grow and will soon have reached its highest point, about twelve centimetres above your belly button.
This causes your organs to be pushed aside, giving your lungs less space. You may find it difficult to breathe deeply as well as experience more heartburn. A lot of women once again experience pangs of nausea, which is caused by a compression of the intestines. You can blame that on the growing baby. The symptoms can be contained by eating smaller meals as well as purchasing stomach acid neutralising drugs from the pharmacy. Hang in there, because it won’t be long before the baby repositions itself within your pelvis, which will free up room for your organs and lungs.
