Changes to the Mother

At 36 weeks the top of the womb reaches its highest point. You may feel quite uncomfortable now because of the size of the womb and the baby kicking against your ribs. The head may engage around this time, especially in a first pregnancy. At time time you may feel an urge to pass urine more frequently due to the pressure of the head on your bladder. In some women the head may not engage until later, especially if it is a second pregnancy.
