The Mom:

Relaxation techniques can help you alleviate some of the stress and tension you may be feeling. They can also help you work during labor by enabling you to work with the contractions instead of against them.

There are two types, physical and mental.

Physical relaxation requires you to find a comfortable position, make sure your body is completely supported, pillows can help. Close your eyes and concentrate on tensing and relaxing individual parts of your body. Start at your toes and work your way gradually up to your head, then back to your toes again. When you are done, you should feel nice and loose all over.

Mental relaxation requires deep concentration, so you will need a quiet room where you can be undisturbed. Once you find a place, make yourself comfy. Empty your mind and concentrate on your breathing. Breathe in deeply and hold your breath for a few seconds before letting it out slowly. Once you have established a steady pattern, relax your muscles all over, and let your mind float away. It may help to imagine floating in calm water.

The Baby:
Because she is getting so big, you will probably begin to notice her movements aren't as vigorous. She is probably curled up into the fetal position, with her arms and legs crossed. She weighs about 3 pounds, and is about 16.8 inches long now.
