The third and last trimester. You will feel kicks every day.
Try to recognize the movement pattern of your baby. The force and amount of movements differ per woman and per baby. From now on it is important to feel your baby move every day. Make sure you take the time for this, as you won’t feel it if you are very busy.
If you haven’t felt your baby move all day, sit down quietly or lie on your side and check to see if you can feel anything. If your baby is still very calm after an hour, call your obstetrician.
It is normal for you to be sleeping lighter than usual. This has to do with the preparation of the arrival of your child. When it cries or makes noises after birth, it will wake you up faster.
The baby’s skin is making more sebum, which ensures that the baby’s skin won’t dry out. Your baby is approximately 35 centimeters long and now weighs 900 grams, the size of an eggplant.
The baby is increasingly starting to look like a newborn. From this week, the proportion of the head and the rest of the body will remain the same until the birth.
Your baby’s senses are now well-developed: your baby can see, hear, feel and taste.
