Pregnancy Week 36: Development of the baby and Change to Mother


Development of the baby

1. The fetus has a length of 54cm and a weight of 2.8 kg.

2. The fetus' organs have all fully developed.

3. Fetal lanugo has almost disappeared, except the shoulders, arms, and legs.

4. The fetus' skin is very tender and delicate. It is covered with fat tires to help facilitate a smooth delivery.

Changes to the expectant mother

1. The growing uterus has reached its highest point and is just underneath the chest bone; this will make it difficult for the pregnant mother to breathe.

2. Vaginal discharge increases.

3. The birth canal has become softer and more flexible.
