Third Trimester

Your entire pregnancy, will last approximately 40 weeks.

The progress of your pregnancy is divided into three trimesters.

The third trimester includes weeks 28 through approximately 40.

Much of the same symptoms which began in the second trimester will be present in the third. As the baby grows in size, many of these symptoms will become more acute.

During the third trimester your baby will complete the formation of vital organs and systems will continue to grow at a much faster rate than during the previous two trimesters.
