Having some trouble walking this week? That because your baby has dropped further down your birth canal in preparation for delivery. This dropping process is known as lightening, and it’s likely that you’ll feel a lot lighter as a result! To further prepare for birth, your little one is most likely head down in your uterus now. If this is not the case, you may be a candidate for an external cephalic version, which is manual manipulation of your baby from the outside, to turn him or her headfirst. Because the head first, or vertex, position is least likely to be associated with complications during a vaginal delivery, therefore many babies who are not head first may be delivered by c-section. This week, your baby weighs in at just under six pounds, and measures more than 18½ inches long. Your baby continue to shed lanugo and some vernix, both of which are swallowed, along with other bodily secretions in utero. This mixture will make up a tarry, blackish mixture known as meconium, or your baby’s first bowel movement. To see what’s up for the end of your last trimester, check back next week for your latest video update!
