Week 37 Third Trimester


The tip of your belly is about 6.5 inches from the navel and it will maintain its size until the date of your delivery. Your pregnancy is now considered full term so expect labor any day or week from now.

Labor may be induced if your doctor sees that your health or your baby’s health will be at risk.These special conditions include gestational diabetes and preeclampsia.

Your Baby

Your baby’s weight is almost close to 3 kilos. Meconium, a waste matter, has now started to form in his bowels. His movements are lessened but you should be able to feel at least 10 movements in a span of two hours. In case you don’t feel any movement, try to move around because your baby may just be asleep. To be sure, consult your doctor right away to see if everything’s fine.
