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.

    36 weeks today. :) My son dropped at the beginning of the week and ever since then I’ve been miserable. I can’t sit right, I’m constantly in the bathroom, and my ankles are swollen. On a positive note, I finally am able to go without Zofran AND next week he’s full term! I have a feeling he will be making an early arrival and it will be the week after Christmas. Crossing my fingers because I’m so ready to hold him in my arms.

  20. Avatar of Lovely Lovely says:

    I am 36 weeks now. I can barely walk or get up without assistance and having extreme pressure. I will find out if I have dilated next week. I can’t breathe comfy at all and my appetite changes, certain foods like meat turn me off. I only want fruit and oatmeal. I’m not sure If I will make my due date but the weight I have gained is too heavy for my ankles. its a lot of physical stress.
