Your baby doesn't have much room to maneuver now that he's over 18 inches long and tips the scales at 5 1/4 pounds (about the size of a honeydew melon). Because it's so snug in your womb, he isn't likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times he kicks should remain about the same.
36 weeks is eight months pregnant. Welcome to the first week of month 9! You're just four weeks away from your due date.
Baby is about 19.6 inches long and his or her head is about the same circumference as the abdomen. Average baby weight at 38 weeks is 6.8 pounds. Sounds a lot like a birth weight, huh? 38 weeks pregnant is eight months and about two weeks.

Pregnancy Week 33: How big is your baby? Your baby is approximately 16 ½ inches (42 cm) long and weighs between 4 ½ to 5 pounds (2 to 2.3 kg). Because growth can vary for each baby during this time, your baby may be a little off from these measurements, which in most cases is completely normal.
As a result of these findings, experts now don't consider babies term until 39 weeks. Infants born during weeks 37 and 38 are considered early term. You may be tempted to ask your doctor for an early induction because of swollen ankles or an aching back, but that final month is critical to your baby's good health.
At 37 weeks, your pregnancy is considered full-term. The average baby weighs around 3-4kg by now. Your baby's gut (digestive system) now contains meconium – the sticky green substance that'll form your baby's first poo after birth.
Your baby at 32 weeks. By now, your baby weighs 3 3/4 pounds (about the size of a large jicama) and is about 16.7 inches long, taking up a lot of space in your uterus. You're gaining about a pound a week and roughly half of that goes right to your baby.
Your baby has really plumped up. She weighs about 6.8 pounds and is over 19 1/2 inches long (about the length of a leek). She has a firm grasp, which you'll soon be able to test when you hold her hand for the first time! Her organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb.
Your baby is full term this week and waiting to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it's likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds, about the size of a mini-watermelon.
You are 33 weeks pregnant and if you divide that by 4.33 weeks per month, you are currently 7.62 months pregnant. So, you are almost 8 months pregnant. You cannot ever be 10 months pregnant, as some have answered, unless you go to 43 weeks gestation.
You at 35 weeks pregnant. As only 5% of babies are born on their actual due date, you might already be wondering if every twitch and ache is a sign of impending labour! If your baby was to arrive now, they would still be considered moderately premature, but would most likely be absolutely fine with a little extra care.
Doctor says 40 weeks which is 10 months technically but you technically are not pregnant on the first day of your last period which is how they estimate how many weeks you are. So knock two or three weeks off that and due date is about right for 9 months.

By 33 weeks of pregnancy the baby's brain and nervous system are fully developed. If your baby is a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend from his abdomen into his scrotum. By 36 weeks your baby's lungs are fully formed and ready to take their first breath when they're born.
A preterm or premature baby is delivered before 37 weeks of your pregnancy. Extremely preterm infants are born 23 through 28 weeks. Moderately preterm infants are born between 29 and 33 weeks. Late preterm infants are born between 34 and 37 weeks.
You know lots of women who have delivered their babies a couple weeks early, and they went to the normal nursery. But your baby is in the NICU and can't be with you. Babies born between 35 and 38 weeks are called late preterm infants, and can be some of the most frustrating and unpredictable patients in the NICU.

Babies born at less than 37 weeks' gestation are preterm, or premature. Those born between 32 and 33 weeks have an approximate 98 percent survival rate, and those delivered between 34 and 36 weeks have more than a 99 percent chance of survival, states the March of Dimes website. However, there are still dangers.
Your doctor told you, after all, that at 37 weeks, you're close enough to your due date that its safe to have your baby. Pregnancies used to be considered at term, and babies ready for delivery, any time after 37 weeks.
