The amount of amniotic fluid in your abdomen will start decreasing slowly as your baby continues to grow and takes up most of the space in your uterus.

PHYSICAL CHANGES:

  • Occasional false labor contractions

EMOTIONAL CHANGES:

  • Absent-minded and sluggish feelings
  • More fetal kicks, more enjoyment by you and your partner

Your Baby:


The child’s head is growing in size to manage for the rapid brain developments that occur during this last phase of pregnancy. The fetus stores more body fat, the bones are fully developed and breathing movement occurs.

As time goes on, your baby will silently move an arm or a leg or both across your belly every now and again.
