How's the foetus during week 37?


Getting stronger
Your baby is about 48.6cm in lengthfrom crown to heel and weighs about 2.8kg.
 
He's gaining weight - approximately 28g a day.
At this stage, he will turn toward light and practise breathing movements.
His tiny grasp becomes firm.

Vaginal discharge will be heavier.
Breathing might become easier as your baby has settled into the pelvis and there is less pressure from your diaphragm. This is called 'lightening'.
