Muscle growth: Muscles develop, becoms toned and their strength increases. Placenta: The placenta grows, and the blood flow in it increases to support the baby’s quicker growth in the final trimester.

The fluid lessens as the fetuses grow bigger with lack of space in the womb. Trouble falling asleep: The closer you are to the due date, the more difficult it is to sleep.
Aches and pains: The hormonal fluctuations and changes make you uncomfortable, especially when you are carrying twins. Stretches, yoga, walking, swimming or prenatal massages could help. You can also wear maternity belt, which relieves pressure and reduces aches. However, do check with your doctor before taking up these exercises.
