thanks for choosing health care magic.Indigestion is usually not a sign of labor.If you have abdominal pains frequently with some leaking per vaginal you might be in labor.other wise by just by bloating or indigestion there is no reason to worry.Keep observing movements of your baby inside,they should as usual,not very much increased or decreased from recent days.ok take care.

Welcome to last trimester of pregnancy can be physically and emotionally challenging. Your baby's size and position may make it hard for you to get comfortable.Try to remain positive as you look forward to the end of your pregnancy. Soon you'll hold your baby in your arms! Here's what to expect in the meantime. -backaches
-shortness of breath
-heartburn-During third trimester pregnancy, your growing uterus may push your stomach out of its normal position, which can contribute to heartburn-So eat small and frequent meals.Avoid fried foods, carbonated drinks, citrus fruits or juices, and spicy foods
.-Spider veins, varicose veins and hemorrhoids.
-Frequent urination.
-Uterine contractions.
-pedal Edema
-growing fatigue.
As your baby's arrival nears, your body is going through some of the most intense changes of your whole pregnancy. This is also an emotional time, as you prepare for an addition to your family. Try not to do too much, and focus on taking care of yourself by getting plenty of rest and talking about any worries you have with your partner, friends, or doctor.
