Most of baby's bones will now harden, except for their skull. This is to help ease exit through the birth canal

Your own body will also react to help ease the birth. A hormone called relaxin will help you joints and ligaments to soften slightly which will make it easier for baby to move out of the pelvis.

Your little one is getting bigger, gaining about half a pound per week

Once your little one arrives, breastfeeding is the best way of nourishing them. Your breastmilk will be uniquely tailored for your baby and will change composition a number of times once your baby arrives.

Breathe easy! Your baby will soon drop lower into your pelvis, relieving some of the pressure from under your ribs

You may find as they get bigger that you have a little trouble breathing. This is because your internal organs have moved up in response to your growing uterus which can put some pressure on your lungs. As baby drops in the next couple of weeks this should ease up.

Baby would now be considered full term if they were born this week

You are getting closer and closer to meeting the little person who has been growing and developing inside you each day. Try to be patient - you're almost at the beginning of the next adventure!

Development

Your baby is now developed enough to be considered full term if they were born this week. If you’re feeling tired and overheated at the moment, it’s because your body is working harder to nurture your baby and support their extra weight – the more blood that your body circulates to both of you, the more calories needed and the warmer you become. Try to keep up exercise if you can, particularly your Kegels. Keeping your pelvic muscles toned will aid in a quicker recovery from the birth. As baby stretches, the walls of your uterus and your abdomen stretch thinner, allowing more light in which means baby will start to develop daily activity cycles.

With your baby taking up most of the space your stomach used to have, you may find that your appetite has reduced. If you don’t feel like eating large portions, try to graze on smaller meals and healthy snacks throughout the day – this will ensure your baby and you are receiving a steady supply of energy. Remember to include iron rich foods such as red meat, chicken, eggs and leafy green veg. Iron will support healthy blood particularly with your increased blood volumes and it will also help to reduce tiredness - something that you will most likely be feeling for the next few months!
