Pregnancy by weeks

What happens to the baby?

From this week on you can be completely calm! The baby is already in the period when he/she is considered a full term baby. Only some details of your baby will change, which will get him/her formed in his/her entire fascination for the first meeting with you.

The main change in his/her development comprises the accumulation of fats – whole 15 g per day! Furthermore, he/she takes a position to go to the outer world – his/her little head takes a position in the pelvis fixed for the birth.

What happens to you?

If this is your first delivery, it is quite possible the adjustment of the baby in the pelvis to occur at a later stage – during any of the next weeks. Now, you and your body have to make the last efforts. You may constantly feel the need of a close toilet again.

The waist pains are not a novelty for you and now you will probably feel them again. But this time they come in combination with a faint feeling in the pelvis. To ease yourself, remember that you have little left until the end of the adventure called pregnancy and until you go to the next exciting challenge – the motherhood.

This week you should ...

Make a list of big things to shop. You will need a wash-tub for the baby, a diaper rack, blankets, etc. Be sure you have not missed them.

Be patient – If you do not deliver this or the next week, do not panic. Calm down and think that you are among the women who deliver exactly on the due date and not a day earlier.

Know how to prepare your breast for breast-feeding – After the birth you will feel how special the moments of breast-feeding are. In order to feel the most cherished closeness, without the unpleasant feeling that your dry and sore nipples might cause, use the Maternea Nutri-Calming Nipple Balm.
