Week 36

Your baby's development during your pregnancy

Your baby is getting bigger each day and gaining as much as 5oz a week by this late stage. If this is your first baby, their head may already be pointing down and be ‘engaged', getting ready for birth – but don't worry if you can still feel them squirming about, it's perfectly normal. Your baby now measures about 47cm in length and probably weighs around 6lb (2.7 KG) so there's not much room left in there!
