My Pregnancy Week 36

Pregnancy Week 36

Your baby continues to grow and develop inside of you, measuring over 19 inches long, and weighing about 6 ½ lbs! (Having multiples? Your twins may be around five pounds now.) During week 36, your baby’s most important job is to keep putting on weight. Actually, that’s her primary job from now until delivery.

You probably have another 4 weeks to go until delivery, especially if this is your first pregnancy, but “Full Term” refers to the period between 37-41 weeks, so your baby could be coming any time now! Your due date is probably a good guideline to determine when your little one is coming. Even though few women deliver on their actual due date, many women deliver in the days just before or after.

    Baby boy #4! By far the most uncomfortable pregnancy, extreme back pain and trouble sleeping is no fun. Been having the BH contractions since 16 wks and now they are super strong but the DR has not seemed worried about this at all and has not done a cervical exam yet, I am still not going every week yet either… I hope at our next appointment he tells us that we are making progress (dilation, effacement) of some kind, it’s discouraging when you feel like your body is working hard at something to only find out nothing is happening!

      I was 18 just about turn 19 with my first baby and I was the same way. I was scared and nervous because I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. Having my friends and family there to help made a huge difference. Good luck with everything. My son is now 5 years old and I wouldn’t change things for the world. I am 36 weeks with my 3 rd boy and I think you will do a great job. Again good luck.

    I’m 36 woks today with my second baby boy my other boy is now 5 this pregnancy has not Been a breeze for me I’ve had the morning sickness the trouble sleeping, and right now I’ve had Braxton hicks contractions for a week which are very annoying I just went for my ob appointment yesterday cervix was not open and I was only 25% efface when they did the growth ultrasound the week before my baby was measuring at 36wks 6days and was already over 6 1\2 pounds which meant he could come any time so it was hard to hear my cervix still was not open even with all the pain and pressure I’ve been in they scheduled me for another ultrasound next Friday to check how big he is and to see if we may have to go another route we are set up and ready for baby Jace to come into this world just seems he’s taking his sweet time which is ok but I could deal without the contractions and pain
