During the third trimester (last three months of your pregnancy), your baby will grow and develop a whole lot larger while preparing for the birthing process. Your baby’s growth is approximately 2.5 pounds (1.13 kg) and 16 inches (40.64 cm) long during week 28. Finally, by the end of week 40, the baby growth can be somewhere between 6 to 9 pounds (2.72 to 4.08 kg) and 19 to 22 inches (48.26 to 55.88 cm) long.
Your baby gets adapted to regular sleep and wake cycles by the third trimester. You can also feel a difference in the baby’s activity levels during those periods. At times, your baby will also respond to bright light and sound.
Your growing baby needs more living space in the womb. Therefore, don’t be surprised if you find your baby bump growing more and more during this last trimester!
Take a look at the detailed overview of your baby’s growth and development during this third trimester here:
Your baby continues to grow and develop faster during this last trimester of your pregnancy. This can even lead to little kicks and pokes in your tummy.
By the end of week 37, your baby is considered full-term. This further means that, your baby possesses all the functional organs essential for life.
Now, while your baby passes through these few weeks of final prenatal growth and development, it’s essential to visit your doctor and schedule your third-trimester check-ups and tests on time. This trimester could be a little tedious, but shortly you will be taking home your prized possession, your baby!
Finally, you need to check a few things with your doctor to keep a track of your baby’s growth and development during the third trimester which includes:
● Did your baby gain enough weight?
● Are you pending for any prenatal scans or tests?
● Do you need any additional vitamin or mineral supplements in your diet?
● Did you check for Stem Cell Banking & its benefits?
● If you have already enrolled, some stem cell banking companies like LifeCell provide collection kit. This kit is very portable & easy to carry with your hospital bag.
Currently, many cord blood banks are available in India that offers special early bird enrolment packages for banking your baby’s precious stem cells.
