Born & Birth stories



Your baby's crown-to-rump length at this time is approximately 14.4 inches and the total length is approximately 21.5 inches. The average baby weighs a little more than 7 pounds now and is preparing for birth. You are probably as big as you are going to get and may be uncomfortable now. Most women gain between 25 and 35 pounds during their pregnancy. Your uterus is about 7-8 inches above your bellybutton now.

Although your baby continues to grow and develop inside of your uterus, there is not much room for him to move about. All of your baby's organ systems are now complete and the lungs were the last to fully mature.

If you are uncomfortable with your pregnancy at this time, you are not alone. Most women are ready to deliver their babies. It would be very unusual for you to not be uncomfortable at this time. Your uterus has grown a lot and now fills your entire pelvis and abdomen. Try not to ask your doctor to induce you, unless it is medically necessary. Your cervix is ripening in preparation for delivery and your bladder is under a lot of pressure. You may feel nervous about the upcoming labor. You will know when you are in labor because contractions will get worse when you move around and they will also get stronger and more frequent. Other signs of labor are the breaking of your water or a bloody show as the mucus that plugged your cervix becomes dislodged.

Most of the lanugo on your baby should be gone by now. Your baby still may have some on his shoulders and in the creases of his body. Your baby's toenails have reached the end of his toes. The umbilical cord is about a half inch thick and may be wrapped around him. The umbilical cord still supplies the baby with nutrients that he needs. After delivery, your baby's umbilical cord will be clamped and cut. After it is cut, he will be an independent human being and must perform all of his body functions on his own. Your baby will get antibodies from your body that give his immune system a boost.

Brandy b there normal feelings but I can assure you you will be just fine and your other little one will adjust to the new member I to was nervous having my second try and relax be positive once you see the baby all those thoughts will dissapearer :)

brandyb1984 - 2 days ago
Ok.. this might not be a popular question... anyone nervous about having their 2nd child? Im sooo nervous.. are they going to get along, am i goong to feel the same about my 2nd as i did my 1st? I feel guilty feeling thinkong like this..

sarah6485 - 5 days ago
Oopix same reason wanted this baby be year below my daughter or misses out on a while year :-/ I have also had lots pinching in cervix and nothing still :( midwife said baby is real low but nothing seems me happening

oopixiesticks - 6 days ago
Sarah-I'm not counting on it happening for me either I was just worrying about the future lol thinking of the cut off date to get into school I would hate for him to be held a year in school over a day or two but I guess that's out of my control. Not going to risk our health by pushing an induction if baby is still too high and not ready. Just really thought this one would be early since my second came on her own 8 days early and i have been so active this pregnancy and lost my mucus plug at 37 weeks and have been feeling those sharp pains to my cervix but that didn't do a thing lol :( either way we'll have our babies soon!

sarah6485 - 6 days ago
Good luck cuppcake baby Ali I've had cramps headaches tiredness today :( now nothing got midwife Tomo. Oopix I was hoping my baby turns up before sept but not counting on it

Baby ali - 6 days ago

oopixiesticks - 6 days ago
Hi still no baby here either will be 39 weeks on Friday. Doctor told me they would induce me this Friday but then at my last checkup they told me they wouldn't do it because my cervix was still too high and baby's head was behind it. I really wanted to have this baby before September but I have no sign of anything only pain that I'm so huge I can barely walk. My 4 yr old doesn't like to see me sit down either so everytime I sit down she tells me she's hungry I been living in my kitchen she eats all day but just for attention. My almost 2yr old still wakes up in the night i don't know how it's going to be with the new baby.

CuppycakeMama - 6 days ago

Hoping this week shows some signs of something getting ready if not il except I'm gona be late haha. With my son I had signs the week leading up to his birth that things were changing

fnouf - 7 days ago

sarah6485 - 9 days ago
Baby Ali I'm having on off cramps contractions then all stops hence I've been frustrated lol

Baby ali - 9 days ago
fnouf- my little one is clingy aswell wants to be carried and stuck on me 24/7. hubby still working early morning till late night building his restaurant got a deadline mid September so am home alone which I dnt mind coz he has to do it got no choice, Inlaws never help out they live 10 minutes away stupid Inlaws can't stand them😠 dnt even offer to take kids for a hour or two. anyways hope to god I have the baby begining of next week so my brothers can come over for few days as their school opens on the 1st sep😭😭😭😭😭 ppl say eating hot curry starts labour LOL rubbish it doesn't, sex? NOPE and defo rasberry tea is a waste of time dsnt do anything, been jumping up n down aswell lol I think I should start rolling on the floor or something LOL

Baby ali - 9 days ago
from 8am this morning I had bad period pains thought yay! something's happening till lasted for 2 hours and then went away completely 😭😭😭😭😭 LOLOL no more pains as of yet I dnt understand why it did that? 2 hours of pains and then nothing had a hot shower been carrying the little one trying to get something going again but noo nothing😩😩😩😩😩 oh god help

fnouf - 9 days ago
Hey guys, hope you're all ok. I'm good, still pregnant lol. 2 days till due date and 8 days till I'd be happy to have baby lol I think the nesting instinct doesnt help with the kids being so messy. Isabelle is usually clingy but she has gone super clingy. Don't get a minute to myself without a 19 month old hanging off me, climbing on me, hugging my leg. Sweet but exhausting haha. Funtime, any sign of baby yet?

sarah6485 - 10 days ago
Funtime something's definatly happening for you wish I'd dilate silently my last my 6th birth at 40 weeks I was just 1cm haha and all rest I was high and closed :( be great if silently got to a 5. Good luck I reckon you will have your baby tonight or Tomo :) x

Baby ali - 10 days ago
Sarah- it will be a very painful end of the tunnel for me haha if am geting induced :0( deeading it big time. feeling baby trying to wiggle about but no space lol it's squirming πŸ˜–

Baby ali - 10 days ago
Funtime- something defo happening fingers crossed :0) hope all goes well

funtimemum80 - 10 days ago
Since I last wrote I've had a bloody show after a lot of pinching feeling inside, no contractions tho which is unusual for me as I normally have a show when I'm contracting regularly. I got my hopes up then felt sad when I read online it can mean something and nothing. I have learnt from my midwife that after 6 babies my cervix will probably dilate quite a bit before contractions kick in which puts my other labours in perspective, have been 5cm the past 3 times before I've felt any pain, I'm hoping it's the same this time, I can do niggles just want to see what is going on in my body....

sarah6485 - 10 days ago
Baby Ali least you can see the end of the tunnel and Funtime mum keep me posted on all your symptoms and if progresses definatly sounds promising . Think il only be induced in hospital if go 12 days late meantime they do sweeps from 40 weeks to start things

funtimemum80 - 10 days ago
Congratulations ladybug : ))

funtimemum80 - 10 days ago
Sarah- we are the normal ones who reach our due date and more.... 40 plus 5 for me today.... Had a 'promising' night, period pains and back hurt ( a lot) I ended up downstairs on all fours rocking, I could hear my hips clicking for the 1st time ever which means either I'm getting old or they have gotten loose to push someone out! It's not gone away dispite taking strong pain killers and having a hot bath but it's not building up either, will go out soon for a walk in the hope it brings something on, my poor husband is on hump patrol all weekend you can guess what his job is lol

Baby ali - 10 days ago
lol life's not fair 😩 happy to say am 39 weeks today horrray! next Saturday induction booked woohooo lol I know I got a week of this roller coaster😣😣

sarah6485 - 10 days ago
Baby Ali the things they do to us :-/. My friend is due 14th sept and already showing signs in labour booooo I feel I'm gona be pregnant forever :( why can't I have a baby a little bit early

sarah6485 - 10 days ago

Baby ali - 11 days ago

ladybug85 - 11 days ago
Violet Isabelle was delivered via c-section on 8/19. She was 8 lbs 6 oz and 19 inches long. She's perfect and we love her so much already! Congrats and good luck ladies :)

sarah6485 - 11 days ago
I definatly think the kids will be the start of our labours haha. Yes I think we are all getting tired and anxious now so it's no surprise we snap get upset and wana scream and cry. I swear kids know we can't do much while we are this big haha

Baby ali - 11 days ago
fnouf- I no how u feel am the same feel very emotional and angry, had an argument with hubby the other night over a little thing, swore my head off at him and told him to get out my houseπŸ‘€ poor man didn't no wat to do LOL told him am gonna leave him and go to my mums if he dares pisses me offπŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜– and even the kids r really pushing me to become a horrible emotional insane women😰 they r running wild and I have no energy to do anything, feel like the house is a mess although I clean it everyday and it gets to me, feel like crying wen kids mess it up again and again, i just can't cope with the emotions, Sarah- I do feel sorry for our kids it's not their fault that we can't cope with our pregnancy hormones😩😩😩😩 hopefuly not long till these babies come out and we r back to normal LOL

fnouf - 11 days ago
gah emotional mess today! Just ripped this ignorant old bat a new one at Aldi, it was really busy and she took a parent and child space instead of waiting for a normal one meaning I had to squeeze Isabelle in and out of her car seat. Then I keep randomly crying. My Dad just felt my wrath too! Katie asked for Ice cream but I said no cus she already had some in the freezer and has a carrier bag full of sweets and chocolate left from Easter as I don't like them eating too much junk so takes ages to get thru it. So just to make me look like a twat my Dad decided to buy her a box of ice creams. I swear I nearly punched him too lol. My husband has done nothing wrong but he is definitely on my hit list. I know its hormones but still finding it hard to chill. Anger, tears, jealousy (no idea why) gaaahhhhh hormones need to do one!!!!

sarah6485 - 11 days ago
Yes our babies most likely won't fully engage until we are in labour mine don't engage until I'm in established labour. And tell me about it baby Ali defo know it's Friday as kids seem to be little devils come the end of the week and test my patience I'm surprised it's not our kids playing up that sends us into labour hahaha

Baby ali - 11 days ago
fnouf- oh right, she did say with the 3rd it will engage during labour. oh well it's the waiting game now it can't stay in there forever lolz My kids r playing up now they r soo naughty dnt listen to a word I say which is annoying me and really pushing my patience!! aarrggh god help

fnouf - 11 days ago
the nipple thing did nothing for me either. Unfortunately 4/5 engaged means not very. 4/5 is how much of the head can be felt above your pelvis so 1/5 means almost fully engaged. I was 2/5 on last visit the Thurs before last so don't think it means much. They say with 3rd baby you probably won't fully engage until you are in established labor. Pretty sure baby has popped out of my pelvis again anyway lol. I have midwife this coming Thurs so we'll see lol

Baby ali - 12 days ago
LOL nipple stimulation and sex is doing nothing for me LOL waste of my sooo called energy😩😩😩😩😩😩

cheerlover2003 - 12 days ago
Yea! I don't know how true it is but I have heard of ladies hooking up their breast pumps early to do nipple stimulation and that it actually works for them. I haven't tried it before but maybe if I still haven't had my baby by mid next week I might be desperate enough. I am just sick of going to work by now and I just want my squishy baby! ;)

sarah6485 - 12 days ago
I've tried nipple stimulation before and I not ever get a contraction from it sometimes I think thy tell us all this to keep us occupied haha

Baby ali - 12 days ago
had midwife appointment today everything's okay head is engaged 4/5 does that mean it's nearly there?? feeling a lot of pressure very low pelvic area wen I stand, feel very uncomfortable today hope I have the baby mid next week would be great got advised by the midwife to call hospital induction ward 7:45am on Saturday 30th and go in to be induced if I dnt go into labour b4 then. so I guess I know il defo have baby by 30th fingers crossed and lots of prayers :0) hope all goes well for all the ladies ready to have the baby. also midwife told me to rest but it's very unlikely with two children who need constant attention and looking after, she sed I look very tired and exhausted lol obviously!!!!! I can't sleep during night due to heartburn and leg cramps by the time I do sleep it's 3-4am then awake for 8-9am so yeah I do look like a zombie πŸ‘€ also got advised by the midwife on how to naturaly go into labour! sex and nipple stimulation LOL like I dnt no

sarah6485 - 13 days ago
I've been bowling tonight with the kids and then done the deed again so far lots braxtons and cramps again bet it it's all stopped again by morning though :-/ Aslong as it's doing something gradually πŸ‘

cheerlover2003 - 13 days ago
Thanks Sarah. I will try to do more walking. I was hoping being active with my 2 other kiddos was enough but I will have to get more serious or just more patient :)
