Your Pregnancy Week 37
You are now considered to be full term. Relax about the due date. Only 5% of babies arrive on their due date. If your baby were to be born this week, there should be little chance of complications. All systems are go - from circulatory, to the senses, to the muscles. The only organ that may require assistance is the lungs, if they are immature. And if they are, don't worry. The hospital will have all the assistance your baby will need to thrive.
Baby is 48.6 cm long and weighs 2859 grams. Your baby is piling on the fat - and it's good for him. A lot of the wrinkles have been pushed out, but now fat rolls may be in their place. Your baby will still have wrinkles around the head, feet and hands, but his stomach will be nicely rounded!
