  • How big is your baby?

    By the end of this week, your baby will be 33cm from crown to rump – that’s about as big as baking tray. While she won’t grow much in length, she’ll put down more body fat, and will weigh around 2.5kg.

  • How is your baby growing?

    If your baby were to be born this week, her chances of surviving without too many of the major problems associated with prematurity would be very good.

    Her lungs are mature, and as she breathes a protein called surfactant is being produced, which is vital for the healthy development of her lungs. Her digestive system is nearly complete and her central nervous system is maturing.

    There’s barely any room in your womb – your baby’s taking up most of the space now. Her head may have moved down near your pelvis, in preparation for birth.

  • What’s happening to your body?

    By now you will be starting to get familiar with your baby’s patterns of movements. He will be less energetic now that your pregnancy is drawing to an end, but you should still be able to feel your baby moving around. If you notice that your baby has become much less active, or his patterns of movement change dramatically then you should consult your doctor or midwife.
