In the live above you'll hear Lesley and Mother&Baby digital editor Maria Martin talk about the changes you can expect in your last trimester, both for your body and baby as they do their final bit of growing ready to say 'hello world!' 

Lesley explains in depth about things your midwife will be on the lookout for, and the measurements and scans they will be taking to make sure baby is healthy and happy. She also shares her advice on dealing with common symptoms in the third trimester including back pain and insomnia.
