Weekly Pregnancy Guide - Week 31
Weight: 3.25 lbs 1476g
Length (CHL): 15.94" 40.5cm
Heart rate : 140 bpm
Your baby starts to look more pink and less red as white fat continues to be deposited under the skin.
Your baby can now feel pain as the nerve cells and connections are functioning.
The lungs are the only major organ left to complete development.
Physical growth starts to slow a little, but the brain continues to develop rapidly.
Your baby may start to respond more to music, even move to the rhythm!
Toenails have almost reached the end of the toes.
You may find your breasts starting to produce colostrum. This is the thick, yellowish milk that will provide your baby with calories and nutrients for the first few days before your "regular" breast milk is produced.
If your breasts leak colostrum, you may want to purchase disposable or washable breast pads to contain the leak.
During the final month, you may well feel quite immobile, so if you haven't done so already, now would be a good time to get all the things you will need for your baby after birth like milk bottles, and deciding on the sleeping arrangements.
