What The Experts Say

Mother:

Your body is really getting ready and you may notice that you have more and more contractions that seem less and less like practice! This is a great sign that your body is getting ready!

Labor is broken down into three stages:

  • First stage – contractions that open the cervix.
  • Second stage – pushing the baby out.
  • Third stage – birthing the placenta.

Have you thought about how long you’ll work before baby? Some women leave work before their due date or at their due date. Other women work until labor begins. Determine what’s best for you!

Baby:

Baby is continuing to get bigger! Four pounds seven ounces (2 kilograms) and a length of 42.5 cms or 16.8 inches. The hormones from the placenta are starting to activate the milk in your breasts. Did you know that the baby urinates almost a pint a day! Watch out diapers here you come!

Dad:

If you haven’t done it yet, consider doing a piece of art work that is related to your pregnancy. You can do a photo shoot, paint her belly or even do a belly cast. It’s a great way to spend time together as well as commemorate the pregnancy.

What’s Going on with Us:

Still not much.  More work in the nursery.  Mommy’s getting very tired more easily but otherwise, feel great!
