The EIGHTH month:

The baby has begun exercising by kicking, stretching, and changing positions very frequently.  You may be able to locate the movement visually.

Weight gain is persistent. A small extent of swelling in your feet is typical at this stage. Elevation of your feet should be utilized.

The baby changes into a position in the uterus which will be conserved until the birth.

Breast size will be suggestively larger as production of milk is prepared. The breast will be tender to the touch and feel overwhelmingly sore.

The baby's face is now smooth and has little room inside the uterus at this stage.

Did you pack your hospital bag? If not, this is the time to do so.

The NINTH month:

At 36 weeks the baby is nearly 6 pounds. At 40 weeks, the baby is full term and weighs nearly 6 to 9 pounds. The baby has settled into a position tolerating you to breathe easier. Doctors’ visits should be weekly. You will lose feeling of kicking and overall baby movements.

By the end of the third trimester, the baby's head is affianced in the pelvis. The immune system is not yet mature and needs to receive antibodies from your placenta. The baby’s body is enclosed in vernix caseosa, a thick substance that guards the skin from the amniotic fluid.

The final stage of pregnancy-the baby continues to grow.

Your uterus is merely arranging for the birth. False contractions are irregular. If your contractions begin to induce a regular pattern (real contractions) of 4 or more an hour, it is TIME to contact your doctor immediately.
