  • Yes, symptoms can resuraface and/or become stronger closer to "the end". This is due to the increase in the baby's weight, the pressure on your body, the excess blood flow, the excess fluid, etc. It's normal for your body to increase in symptoms and especially in pelvic and lower back pain. Talk them over with your doctor if you are concerned about any of them.

  • If you are having heartburn, ask your care provider to check your baby's position. My heartburn baby was transverse. Better to know in advance so you can try to spin him.
