Born & Birth stories

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.

The baby begins to develop its own immune system.

Not nice Glowing!

afshanm07 - 37 days ago
Hoping all goes well for u glowing. Keep us posted my feet are swelling up and im tired now.

glowingwith2 - 37 days ago
I found out yesterday that work is going to be moving me to a cubical when I return. I'm so devastated! I've had my office for 3 years, and was excited to have the privacy to be able to pump when I want or need to. :( I told my boss I will need a place to pump when I return, but I don't think that will impact the decision to relocate my desk. I love my job, but it makes it really hard to like it at the moment. I'm ready to go on leave now!

blondeabby - 38 days ago
Good at this point one more week on the inside will help a lot:) My app t went ok. Modified work and take days off as needed. We will re look at it in a week and see how I am doing. Measuring at 43 weeks. Thinks she is over 7lbs now at 35 weeks 3 days.yikes!!!

glowingwith2 - 38 days ago
Update - My Fluid level is at a 6, anything below a 5 is dangerous. Baby is measuring 6lbs 3oz, so his growth is on track. They think there might be a problem with the placenta which is causing the low amniotic fluid. I go back on Tuesday for another NST, Ultrasound, and Dr appt. If my fluid has dropped from 6 to 5, they will induce me next week. I will be right at 37 weeks on Wednesday. Going to finish up packing my hospital bag and installing the car seat this weekend. :)

blondeabby - 38 days ago
Glowing -I hope not! I hope you can keep him in even a few more weeks:) Good luck:)

glowingwith2 - 38 days ago
Well looks like it's nearing the end of the road for me. I had my 36 week appointment this morning. My cervix is totally thinned out and his head is down really low. I'm not dilated at all, but I am now measuring a week behind from last week. I go back for an ultrasound in an hour to check to see if the baby has enough fluid. This is almost an exact repeat of what happened with my daughter at 36 weeks. I will keep you posted... last time I was induced at 36w 3d.

elequin - 38 days ago
Snooks! (Old buddy) No good you're not feeling great with hips and back :/ mine are starting to do the achey thing at night when I lay down, and I'm only just finishing the first trimester :( going to be freaking horrible I think by the end... You're so close! And then you can brief me on how to be super mum with three kids under 4... Sending patience and quick labour/recovery to you all for when it happens xxx

blondeabby - 39 days ago
We sure are a mess! I am going to ask to go off tomorrow at my appt. My boss came to me today and said I needed to do yard duty with two kids with ASD. I already told her last week I can't run after them. She rolled her eyes and said that is where she needs me. I am so tired of this! Work refusals take so long.

glowingwith2 - 39 days ago
We are all a mess it sounds like! Snooks, that sounds like hard work. I only have a 4 year old and I struggle with just her sometimes. Losing more of my plug this afternoon! I'm 36w tomorrow, can't wait to hear what the doctor says!

snooks - 39 days ago
Nasty heartburn, also. Lower back and pelvic pain is constant. I have a 1.5yr old and a 3 yr old that keep me hopping. So exhausted.

glowingwith2 - 39 days ago
Blonde, I ended up at home yesterday too. By the evening I was having cramping/contractions every 3 minutes, but they weren't getting stronger. I've lost pieces of my mucus plug, but not the whole thing yet. I get my cervix checked tomorrow morning. I'm hoping all of these contractions mean something is changing. I have so much pressure and I'm having to use the restroom every 45 minutes now. I seriously haven't had any decent sleep in a couple of nights. I also keep waking up choking on my saliva or heartburn. I don't remember getting this miserable my last pregnancy!

blondeabby - 40 days ago
Home again today:( Feeling quilts for leaving my students but I am having so many contractions and I can't breath. Don't think I would be much help to them anyway:(

msjenn727 - 50 days ago
Mamma- that's very understandable. That was the same thing I planned to do :)

mammaramirez - 50 days ago
msjenn - thankfully I get to use my son's pediatrician so I didn't have to go searching. I explained to them that if I couldn't have both at the same doctor then I'd just find a new doctor who would see both.

msjenn727 - 50 days ago
Has anyone already found a pediatrician for baby yet?

msjenn727 - 50 days ago
Went to my weekly ultrasound apt this morning. Baby is doing great and his heart rate was 164. Baby is also measuring 6lbs and 12oz. I believe he may be between 7-8lbs at the time birth. Go for a weekly appt on Tuesday and another ultrasound next Friday.

monica28 - 51 days ago
I happy to hear im not the only feeling sore from the baby movements. my doctor told me she would induce on October 1 if I don't go into labor by myself

msjenn727 - 51 days ago
Mamma- I love my carbs also lol and yes lying in bed on my side you can feel all of baby's movements and no they don't feel pleasant at all anymore!

mammaramirez - 51 days ago
My doctor also told me to ease off the carbs because that will affect my baby's weight.. but I LOVE my carbs and I cannot for the life of me stay away from them.

mammaramirez - 51 days ago
Msjenn - I feel you on pelvic pains, I cannot sit for too long, no matter how I try to position myself in bed I cannot for the life of me be comfortable. When he moves, his moves are no longer pleasant, they make me cringe because they actually hurt. I'm actually stopping by target today to get some breast pads because it's getting pretty bad lol.

msjenn727 - 51 days ago
Mamma- do you use the breast pads for your bra to control the milk leakage?

msjenn727 - 51 days ago
Since I failed the 3 hr glucose test, I feel that I may have a large baby only because 2 weeks ago I weighed 226. This weeks appt, I weighed 234. The pelvic pains are getting much worse and sometimes, it feels as though baby is just going to fall right out of me!

msjenn727 - 51 days ago
Mamma- I can't even imagine being pregnant another 4 weeks. I am also tired and exhausted and ready for him to get his eviction notice, however, still not fully prepared for him to come home yet. Still more things to buy in so little time!

mammaramirez - 51 days ago
I don't I'll have any problems producing milk.... I've been leaking for a few weeks now and it is steadily getting worse.

mammaramirez - 51 days ago
msjenn - Tired, sore, just all out exhausted. I'm so not prepared for him to be here yet, but I so want him out now. How are you feeling?

msjenn727 - 51 days ago
How is everyone feeling this week?

mammaramirez - 53 days ago
35 weeks today!!!!

msjenn727 - 56 days ago
Hello 35 weeks! Happy to have made it this far. Still have a tremendous amount of shopping left to do, but making progress. Hope you ladies are all doing well :) - 58 days ago
How do I explain breast feeding to my 6 year old son? Any advice ladies?

MOMIIB - 65 days ago
35 weeks and exhausted. Praying he stays in til 39 weeks. Wkly appts start next fri. I also will be having the group B swab test. Either way not much longer to go. I have 90% left to do and buy :-( but God willing it all gets done before our sons arrival.

sarah6485 - 88 days ago
I'd say natural is best πŸ‘

Baby ali - 88 days ago
am exhausted and tired all ready, going once up the stairs leaves my legs feeling dead never mind up and down few times lol

Baby ali - 88 days ago
lol I'd rather let nature do it's work all this sounds too complicated and hard work

sarah6485 - 88 days ago
Yeh your cervix has to be showing signs of softening and getting ready anyway then a sweep kick starts things gets the old contractions going although mine was a slow drawn out one to after the 2nd sweep. It got things moving but it still was a whole day of contractions , was only cos I went for a big walk and up down loads of steps I got it going properly and went to hosp :-)

fnouf - 89 days ago
Had sweep with first at just past 40 weeks from what I remember. Didn't do anything lol. Had an amazing weekend away celebrating my first wedding anniversary ... Totally exhausted now zzzzz

funtimemum80 - 89 days ago
I've only had 1 sweep, I think because here i see my midwife at 38 then 40 weeks, I have my babies in week 40 normally so the option never came up until my last pregnancy. I was booked to have a sweep at the hospitals on day 8 ( over due) I woke up that morning with regular contractions and had a huge bloody show, then I got in the bath and everything stopped!! I still went and had my sweep done, the midwife said I had dialated a finger tip! I was so fizzed off! This was @ 8.30 AM went home started contracting again around midday, I had 1 minute contractions every 4 minutes from start to finish with that birth the most weirdest slowest labour I had ever endured. By 5pm I was bored with the same monotoned contractions so went back to hospital, I was 5cm and a pool was run for me, I finally gave birth at 9.45pm, wether it was going to happen or the sweep that kicked my body into gear I don't know, I have heard from others it worked within hours but they were 'ready' and already partially dialated

sarah6485 - 89 days ago
My friend had her sweep at about 2pm (first and only sweep) and walked to school at half 3 and started contractions she had her baby by 8pm Midwife usually tells you if your favourable for it to work but sometimes people need 2 or 3 to get it going

Baby ali - 89 days ago
sounds okay lolz more work getting the damn contractions going lolz

sarah6485 - 90 days ago
I had one and lost my plug then second one 3 days later and that got things started so I walked for the day up and down some steps and that got my contractions going to every 5 mins but they were irregular for a whole day so the big walk and climbing up down stairs at the end of the day got it moving along πŸ‘went hosp at 12 had baby 4 :-)

sarah6485 - 90 days ago
They stretch your cervix open sweep around it separating the membranes from the cervix and that triggers things to happen but you need to be a little soft in the cervix for them to do the sweep. But otherwise no tablets or drips are used so it's nearest to starting Natural labour

Baby ali - 90 days ago
Sarah- that's natural right? having the sweep starts natural labour??

sarah6485 - 90 days ago
Baby Ali in that case stick with the sweeps even if have to have more than one sweep my second sweep soon started my labour and I stayed active all day had her that night πŸ‘

Baby ali - 91 days ago
35 weekssss today oh lord make the time go faster :0)

Baby ali - 91 days ago
that drip one is what am scared of heard horrible stories about it and I dnt want epidural as I have sciatica. am gonna say no to geting induced if I have to have the drip, but sweep is okay never had it b4 but read about it seems okay.

fnouf - 91 days ago
I had pessaries, can't compare pain as for eldest I wasn't induced but had Pethadin as well as gas and air and when I was induced with youngest, only had gas and air. I'm glad you had good experiences Ali, I've been tempted to travel to Cov and Warwick but I would be too worried about giving birth on the way. Only live 5 mins from the George

sarah6485 - 92 days ago
Being induced with that drip is horrible can't say the pesseries are too bad if they work. But the sintocin drip is torture forced fake real hard contractions. Give me a natural labour anyday. If i was to be induced with that drip again id definatly have a epi to cope

Baby ali - 92 days ago
fnouf- yeah am at royal, had both my other kids there experience was good midwifes are good, every midwife is different I think it's luck geting the good ones, there r some who I think shouldn't be there wrong attitude.

fnouf - 92 days ago
your hospital may be different, will you be going to the Royal? I went to George Elliot in Nuneaton and they were put in to special measures not long after, they are now out of special measures again so hoping for a better experience this time xx
