Week 28

Welcome to the third trimester! You’ll be delighted to know that your little one’s lungs have developed to the point that they could breathe if he or she was born early. But of course, a few more weeks of growing and preparing are also needed. They have also started blinking and dreaming, dreaming of meeting you and putting a face to the soothing voice they have been listening to for the last few weeks.

Your baby is getting ready to meet you, so be sure you’re ready to meet them. Start making lists (you’ll probably need to write it down due to pregnancy brain) of items you still need to get. And it’s also time to start considering what you’ll pack in your hospital bag. At this point it’s best to have your hospital bag ready and waiting for when the time comes to meet your little one. If you are unsure what to pack, have a look at our hospital bag essentials.
