At this week, your baby’s lungs are fully developed but it will become functional only after birth. If the baby is delivered this week, he/she will stay healthy and all the organs will function; if not, the growth and movements will continue inside the womb till the date of delivery. If there is a decrease in the baby’s activity, reach your gynecologist.
The ideal weight of the baby is estimated to be approximately 3.3 kg (7.25 pounds).
This week, everything becomes difficult for you, even sitting or getting up from bed. If you haven’t experienced false labour contractions yet, you may feel it this week. Your emotional feelings might want to end the waiting period but it is better to complete this week as your baby knows when he/she will be ready to come out.
This week, you may experience Braxton Hicks contractions better but it is necessary to distinguish it from the real labour contractions. You might also experience other pregnancy symptoms such as heartburn, bloody show, fetal activity slowdown, diarrhea, water breaking, mucous plug, back pain, leg cramps and pelvic pain.
