My 36 Weeks of Pregnancy

Minggu ni usia kandungan dah masuk minggu ke 36..

The baby is 34 weeks old. The baby measures about 33cm (13 inches) from crown to rump and weights about 2.75kg (6 lbs). No doubt the mother has noticed a change in the baby's movement by now, as the uterus is getting very tight for space. The baby may wriggle about less because of this constriction, but his movements will generally be stronger and more defined. The mother will be able to see the outline of certain body parts such as an elbow or a heel appearing under the skin!

By this stage, most babies will have assumed the head-down position ready for birth. This MRI scan shows the baby resting with its in the lower part of the uterus.. (Dr. Anne Deans - Your Pregnancy Bible)

At the end of this week, your baby will be considered full-term. (Full-term is 37 to 42 weeks; babies born before 37 weeks are pre-term and those born after 42 are post-term.) Most likely she's in a head-down position. But if she isn't, your practitioner may suggest scheduling an "external cephalic version," which is a fancy way of saying she'll try to coax your baby into a head-down position by manipulating her from the outside of your belly.
