Pregnancy week 39
How's the foetus during week 39?
Your baby is about the 50 - 51cm in length and weighs about 3.2kg.
Your baby's settling into the pelvis and is protected by the pelvic bones.
Her lungs are already functioning.
Your baby fills most of the uterus and can't move around much anymore, but when she does, you'll feel it.
Most of the downy covering of lanugo has gone from the skin.
Your baby may have a full head of hair.
What's with my body: Not much walking, apart from to the loo
Walking may become more difficult because the baby has dropped into the pelvis.
You will need to the loo more often because of pressure on your bladder.
By now, you would probably have put on between 11.5 and 13.5kg.
