Pregnancy Calendar - Week 36
Still packing on weight, your baby will be a total of 15% fat at birth. Your baby is following regular patterns of sleep and wakefulness and experiences life through all five senses. Your baby's gums are firm with ridges that look like teeth, although teeth will not arrive until at least three months of age. Baby is alert and will turn his head toward light and sound, just like a newborn. Baby is now 47cm and long and weighs nearly 2.7kgs.
Around this stage, your baby ‘drops', a process also called ‘lightening'. It is the process of your baby moving closer to the birth canal. It makes breathing easier, but it makes pressure on your bladder that much more intense though.
