Coming up to the last lap now!
Your baby is now putting on more fat on the cheeks, making the face fuller.
The accumulating fat is also causing dimples to be formed on the elbows and knees, and creases on the wrists.
Your baby will move lower into the pelvic region any time now and you'll be able to breathe more easily again. However, walking around will become more difficult and pressure on the bladder increases.
You might become aware of your baby's hiccups more often starting from now.
You'll probably be visiting your doctor once a week at this point, and he/she may be examining your cervix for signs of effacement (thinning) and dilation (opening) in order to see what position your baby is in. Your cervix is fully dilated when the opening measures 10 centimeters.
Your baby should have turned head down by now, but this does not happen in about 3% of all pregnancies (known as a "breech position"). There are ways that can help make the baby turn around.
Have you given thought to breastfeeding? The benefits are many, including: fewer allergies, better immunity, higher IQ, reduced risk of SIDS, etc.
