Twenty-eight weeks is the beginning of the third trimester. It is time to start talking with the healthcare provider about the birth plan. Starting the conversation early gives the woman time to get all her questions answered. It is also time to start thinking and making plans for practical aspects of the birth such as transportation to the hospital, including a back-up plan if labor begins early, and child care if there are young children in the family.

You may want to consider getting tested for different communicable diseases that could affect your child during week 28 of pregnancy. You should continue to maintain a healthy diet and exercise program.
