7 weeks to go!

Your baby may be anywhere between 16 and 17 or more inches in length. She weighs more than 4¼ pounds and measures about 44 cm.

Your doctor will carefully monitor the baby’s position during the next few weeks. Some babies chose to sit, which can ruin the expectation of vaginal birth.

The child’s head is still relatively flexible, as the bones haven’t merged completely. This will make it easier for the head to pass through the birth canal. The skin doesn’t have the same rugged appearance as before and, despite sleeping a lot, whenever her little eyes are open, the baby is paying attention to everything that happens outside of the womb.
