Needing the toilet

As well as getting an upset stomach, you might find that you feel the need to go to the toilet more. That's because your baby's head has moved and might now be pressing on your bowel.

Contractions can contribute to this too - as they get stronger you might find that you start to need the toilet more often - again, there's no need to worry as this is totally normal.
