Pregnancy Calendar: Week 29 to Week 32

In the previous post mentioned that the baby already has the appearance of a newborn but fairly thin. We are entering the last trimester of gestation of the pregnancy calendar in which children accumulate fat needed to survive outside the womb and gradually will be more rellenito.

We are in the seventh month of pregnancy. There are only eight weeks in which every day the baby inside the womb of the mother is essential for their development. In these weeks, even though the weight of the gut begins to bother, don’t let side exercise or much less a balanced diet to nourish the baby and to avoid too much gain weight because it might be detrimental to the time of delivery of maternity shoes from

As of usual, go to the review of How to grow the baby week by week throughout this month.

Week 29 of pregnancy

In the week 29 of pregnancy (27 weeks gestation) the baby weighs about 1,200 kg and measured 35 centimeters from the head to the buttocks. I want to clarify that weight and height figures are estimated for each baby has its own growth rate.

The small one is already able to maintain their body temperature due to the layer of fat that accumulates under the skin, but still need the warmth of the womb.

Your brain is still developing rapidly creating new nerve cells and increasing brain tissue.

Week 30 of pregnancy

Starting from the week 30 the baby begins to search the final position to be born, if you have not done so before. Most places are mouth down so it is very possible that you feel the kicks in the sternum area. However there are also baby sitting breech, some change of position before birth but others did not.

With 36 centimetres to the buttocks (approx. 42 cm from head to feet) and a weight of approximately 1,350 grams, their lungs continue maturing and producing surfactant (see previous post), a substance that will allow you to breathe on only when it leaves the mother’s womb and cut the umbilical cord. By the way, the umbilical cord is fun. In addition to their own hands is his favorite toy in utero.

The nails of the feet and hands, as well as the eyelashes and hair have already formed and continue to grow.

Week 31 of pregnancy

In the week 31 the volume of amniotic fluid in which the baby floats is half-liter, but your body will grow and gradually occupying the capacity of the uterus. It measures 37 centimeters to the buttocks (43 cm to FT) and weighs 1,500 grams.

Your digestive tract is almost ripe, can already move bowel although it is not usual to do it. Anyway, if you defecara, the placenta is responsible for filtering and renew the amniotic fluid.

Baby turns his head from one side to the other, but their movements are no longer as free as weeks ago since it costs more stretched and rotated by the lack of space. Also, not to move and you touching the belly, you can feel his arms and legs stretching. At this point you can begin to keep track of your baby’s movements and take it to the monthly medical consultation. Remember that if you notice any signs of downtime out of the ordinary, you should go to the doctor.

Week 32 of pregnancy

In the week 32, the last of the seventh month, the baby weighs around 1700 grams and measures 38 cm (44 cm from head to feet). Her body is filling and contouring due to the fat that has accumulated in the last few weeks, though it still continue.

His lung structure, digestive and kidney being refined to operate outside of the uterus. Lungs practice breathing, bowel can digest and the baby swallows amniotic fluid and urine. Over the next few weeks all organs will continue his maturation process.

With regard to the mother, in these first weeks of the third quarter you will begin to notice the typical hassles of this period such as, cramps, heartburn, difficulty breathing, heaviness in the legs, and generalized fatigue.

At this stage of the pregnancy calendar It is possible that you have noticed some sporadic uterine contractions called Braxton Hicks contractions. They are a preparation for childbirth, but they are not themselves labor contractions are irregular. Like all muscle, the uterus needs to have some training for the moment of giving birth.

Although they are painless, you will feel some abdominal tension and gut hardens. Without however, there are certain warning signs to consider. You should go to your doctor if you have more than 4 contractions per hour with less than 36 weeks or 5 per hour with more than 36 weeks, if the contractions are accompanied by abdominal, pelvic pain or back, if they are accompanied by unusual vaginal discharge or in the case of a history of preterm birth.
