This week your baby is gaining upper body strength, but you may be feeling the effects of pelvic girdle pain. We find out why you get this back pain and aching hips and how to cope with them. We tackle pregnancy jargon this week too – find out what cephalic means. Plus, we’ll be talking antenatal classes. Have you booked on to them yet? And have you thought about a name for your baby? Hear how a BabyCentre tool could provide you with a first spark of name inspiration!
