Your baby now weighs over 5.5 pounds and its crown-to-rump length is approximately 13.2 inches. Your baby's total length is around 20.25 inches at this point. Your uterus is now 6 inches from the bellybutton and the average weight gain is approximately 24 to 29 pounds.
Most pregnant women begin to feel cramped and heavy around this time and often become tired of being pregnant. Some women feel like they do not have to room to breathe or eat. You should eat small, but frequent, meals and rest as often as you can throughout the day. Your cervix will begin to dilate and efface within the next few weeks to make room for your baby's head to emerge from the birth canal. Your cervix needs to be 10 cm dilated in order to deliver your baby.
This week of your pregnancy your baby's fingernails will have definitely reached the tips of his fingers. When your baby is born, his nails may look long and pointy. Your baby is less likely to scratch himself at this point because of the lack of room in the uterus. Fat deposition will still continue and your baby is getting chubbier and rounder. Your baby's shoulders are plump at this point.

Wow, i have not yet heard of a hospital denying a VBAC kerot, i would be interested in knowing why. Shahpantha-as far as knowing if it is right for you, i did a TON of research about it and talked to my doc about it from day one, I really didnt let her give me an answer without explanation. From what I have learned, the biggest reason you would not be okay or allowed to attempt a VBAC is if your body is in the same condition or going through the same thing as it was to cause the first or previous C Section. In my case, i made it all the way through to 10 centimeters and 100% efaced and my sons heartbeat would not stabilize, they tried for about an hour and at the end did an emergency c section and he was perfectly fine, so they gave me the go ahead from the beginning to attempt a VBAC and have watched me to make sure all signs were go ever since. There are dangers of a VBAC, however there are more dangers of infection damage to scar tissue for repeat c sections depending on your body. I do know that there are like 5 criteria you need to meet to have a successful VBAC and going post term is typically not an option. Hope this helps some who are weighing the options. I had the worst C Section experience I have ever heard yet so that is why i opted not to do it again.

Had a c-sec with my first and the hospital I am going to do not allow VBAC. Not sure why, but I scheduled my c-sec when I was 32 weeks along. I tried when I was 26 but they told me no hurry.

Hi, my first one was a c-section. My second one is scheduled for June 18th. How do I know if VBAC is good for me? Everytime, I talk about having vaginal delivery, my doc usually denies it..

Good morning!! I found this website 6 months ago and just joined today. Kind of feel alone at times, well besides my bundle of joy and all the action in my tummy! I love coming on here and reading what everyone has to say, I feel like thank goodness there are people out there, going through the same stuff at the same time as me! So thank you very much!!:) My due date is 9/5, but I will be having my 3rd C section all my babies have been breach, so far this one is too. My doctor usually does mine 1-2 weeks early. Even though it's my 3rd, I am very scared for this one, my oldest is 9 and I have a 5 yr old, this was not planned, but we love it. I do plan on having my tubes tied. I have heard good and bad things about it, anyone have any information I have that appointment coming up, so I can ask questions than, but still worrying now!! I have been very tired, but can not sleep in the early morning, anyone else have days and nights mixed up yet? There are very few nights that I actually get six hours of sleep. I hope that is ok with baby girl. With my first two, sleep was never an issue, got plenty. This time I am up all the time. I do not work, thank god! I do all school runnings and many nieces and nephews that I am very involved with, so I stay busy and still can not sleep:( Anyone else having a C section, if so have you scheduled it yet??? If not, when do I do that. It has been 5 years and do not recall when I made the appointment. I hope everyone is doing good! And hope to get some feedback! Thanks ladies!!

We are getting a new vehicle now. Just test driving to see which. Trying out a black '13 Enclave and so far really like it - deciding if we want the 4 wheel drive or not - good for winter, bad for gas mileage. Anyone have one? Not been feeling the babe move as much as things have gotten tighter in there. I have to drink water and sit still now to notice it.

Had my appt today and found out I'm 1cm dialated & baby is in head down position - woohoo! I know it doesn't mean much since I could sit like that for weeks still, but it felt nice knowing that at least all of the pressure, mucus plug loss, and contractions are not in vain. Next week I get to see my little man via u/s and know that I have no more than 31 days before I'll be holding him in my arms - super excited!

anyone going for a VBAC this time around ladies?
crooney - 10 days ago
I would advise against that idea bc its too early for your baby to be born and if youve only gained five pounds, your baby might need more time to grow. Talkto your dr first. I think its important that you hold on to that bun in the oven a lil longer.

Lol..thank you, I feel so much better! I am glad everything has worked out for you! The itching is awful! I had gone on a vacation to an indoor water park a month ago, and my feet started itching then. I thought that I had picked up athletes foot or something like it, from walking around in my barefeet around the water park. Then it moved from my feet to my hands and tummy. There was never a rash or anything on my feet so I began to suspect it was just the pregnancy. Finally, I had mentioned it to my doctor yesterday and really didn't think anything... until she told me. The itching isn't as bad as it was, but its an itch like no other! I will pray you don't have it this go around...Thank you for making me feel better... it means a lot to me!
PregoMeag - 13 days ago
I'm so sorry that you are stressed, Lori! My doc tested my liver enzymes weekly and monitored the baby regularly. My enzyme levels went up and up, peaked after a couple of weeks, and then slowly went back down to normal. They did an ultrasound on my liver as well, to make sure it wasn't inflamed. As long as your little baby is moving around and the heart rate is normal, things are okay. If your blood test comes back very abnormal, then you will get to see your little baby in about a week. The risk to the baby is greatest after 38 weeks (and even then the baby can be perfectly fine). I have a 90% chance of having the condition again this pregnancy, but my doc also had it in her pregnancy, so she is prepared to monitor me and my baby girl closely and induce at 37 weeks if she has to. I remember my feet itching so bad that they felt like they were heating up from the inside. I kept a fork on the head board of my bed for scratching. Freaked my husband out big time.
lori0743 - 13 days ago
Thank you pregomeag! I have been crying all day because the doctor told me that she won't have my lab results for a week. I keep thinking 'what if too many toxins are ingested by my baby within this week.? Do I have a week to wait?' My symptoms have been going on for about a month but I just thought it was a symptom of being pre go, because a lot of women complain of itchiness.. I worry that I should have m mentioned it sooner and maybe I put my baby in jeapordy by not saying anything at first. Your post did help me a lot, but I'm still so scared. She is my miracle baby. They did other tests to check for red flags and so far the doctor said everything is normal... but still waiting for that one main test! Did they do numerous tests on you as well to check for this? Did yours come back normal but then your main test said you had it? I know I sound like a mad woman, but I am so scared. I lost a baby before and I must just be overreacting... but when I see the internet talk about fetal death, and time is of the essence with this test, I get scared thinking I have to wait a week. By then, I will be almost 37 weeks!
Dragonsoccermom*teamBLUE* - 13 days ago
Lori, 'ams8663' is going through the same thing as you. She's at hospital getting her blood drawn. Good luck to you both!
PregoMeag - 13 days ago
Hi, Lori. I am from week 25, and this is my third baby. I had the condition you are referring to with both of my previous pregnancies. It's called Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy. It only lasted for about 3 weeks, and my doctor did weekly NST's to be safe, but both of my babies were born perfectly healthy at 38 weeks. I just thought that might help you to worry a little less. I know the itching is maddening though!
ilovechaitea - 13 days ago
Aw I'm so sorry Lori, I hope they call soon.
lori0743 - 14 days ago
Had my doctors appt today too. NST test went well.....then more bad news for me. I told the doctor about my itchy feet, tummy, and palms. She immediately had me go to the lab for blood tests. She said I might have a disease that pregnant women get where bile builds up in your liver and causes toxins to go to your baby and could cause fetal death. She said she would call me by 6pm this evening with the results. If I have it, they will take her at 37 weeks. She promised me she would call by 6 pm tonight, but 6 pm has come and gone and my phone has been clentched in my hands all evening. How cruel it was of them to promise to call and then leave me wondering and worrying. If they didn't receive my results, she still should have called me by 6 pm to let me know. Ugh, some doctors can be so cold..... :'(

HELLO WEEK 35!!! I am so excited and nervous! Anyone else getting scared for labor? This is my second child but they are almost 11 yrs apart!

That's amazing bgscooby! Giid job mama!
bgscoobyluver - 18 days ago
Punzgy yes I had him vaginally! Only pushed 14 from practice pushes to done. And crazy thing is, with my first who was only 7.10 I tore and had to get a stitch but I didn't tear with my son.
jamesonsmamma - 18 days ago
Yeah, ultrasounds are notoriously wrong for weight. I am actually banking on that and hope my little boy ends up around 5-6 pounds. I think he will make it there. I feel a bit bigger that I did a few weeks ago. Plus I feel similar to how I did my last few pregnancies and thats how big my babies were.
punzyg - 18 days ago
Wow bgscooby that's a huge baby!! Did you have a vaginal birth?
bgscoobyluver - 18 days ago
I agree about them being off on measurements but for me it was the opp.direction. They said my son was over 8lbs n he turned out to be 9.8lb.
itty-bitty - 18 days ago
With my second they thought he would be over 10 pounds and they wanted to induce me. I was scheduled to be induced but ended up going into labor on my own and he was only 8.2. They can be off 2 pounds on either side. I had a lot of amniotic fluid which made baby look bigger.
firstname.lastname@example.org - 19 days ago
I'm going to ask about induction at my apt thursday and I don't have gb but I was on steroids for over a month because of my pupps but the sonogram said my due date was may 27 but my doc said hes not changing my due date I kinda hope they infuce I'm ready!
mom2beof5 - 19 days ago
I agree with punzyg US tech can't predict perfect weight of baby... They told me w last baby she will be over 9lb but she was 8lb... They told me this baby go on 80% biger so we will see if they right :)
punzyg - 19 days ago
Jamesonsmama- ohno! That sounds so painful! Hope you're better. Amanda- holy!! That's insane! But ultrasound predictions can be off by up to 2lbs over or under. Doctor told my cousins wife she can't have a vbac cuz baby will be 8lbs at 37 wks so they took him out and he was 6lbs!!
bgscoobyluver - 19 days ago
Oh wow Amanda! 7 lbs?! R they talking of inducing? Do u have gd?
email@example.com - 20 days ago
Good news and bad news my baby is measuring 37 weeks and I'm 35+1 weeks and she's about 7.7 lbs so if I had hr today she'd ne completely fine but if I don't have hr til my due date (June 6th) shell likely be a real big one and I'm going all natural 0.0 she's already beating my first by almost a pound (6.11 lbs) and I still have 5 weeks!
jamesonsmamma - 20 days ago
All my NST have been fine. I broke my toe today... for the second time this week! The bone was totally out of whack and I had to get it re-set. That was so unbelievably painful even though they numbed it with lidocain, oh god that hurt! So I have a special boot on to protect my toe from my repetitive pregnant clumsiness. I have my growth scan on Tuesday, hope hes growing!
bgscoobyluver - 20 days ago
Jenn yes I. Am still takin both pills as well. I take my gbs test next wk n hope they check dilation.
punzyg - 20 days ago
