Week 39 Third Trimester


Not much happens during this week in terms of changes. You may have mood swings caused by the raging hormones in your body and this may go on even after you have delivered the baby. Take this opportunity to relax and enjoy your quiet time. Curl up in the sofa with a favorite book (don’t forget to prop your feet on a stool to lessen swelling) and rest. You will need all the energy that you can get for labor.

Your Baby

Your baby is almost 7.5 pounds and 20 inches long. He’s also waiting to come out into the world. For now, he will be practicing how to cry even while inside your tummy. There will be no sound but his mouth will be wide open, his chin will quiver, and his chest will move heavily.
