Welcome to the waiting game! Your next several weeks will probably be just that, as you wonder when your baby will arrive. Up to now, your baby has been very busy plumping up, but-that weight gain will begin to taper off during your 38th week. This week, your no-longer little one weighs more than six-and-a-half pounds, and measures in at 19 1/2 inches, the length of an average pineapple. By now, your baby can grasp firmly, and that’s one of the first skills you’ll notice when your little one emerges from the womb and finds your fingers. If you’re having a boy, his testicles will be fully descended, and if you’re giving birth to a girl, her labia are completely formed now. All other systems and organs are a go, and are ready to work outside your womb. To find out what your baby does in those final weeks in your belly, check back next week.
