Learn about the stages of your pregnancy with our detailed week-by-week guide, detailing how your body is changing, plus the growth and development of your baby.
Your baby’s neck muscles have strengthened and he can hold his head away from the chest wall, but that buoyancy is helped greatly by the amniotic fluid. Once he is born, you will need to support his head when you’re holding him.
It's go time! Anytime now you'll be prepping to give birth.
Your baby’s eyebrows, eyelashes and fingernails are all in place and his organs are developed to sustain him in the “real world” — which he’ll soon be joining. Very soon, you’re hoping!
The only job remaining for you this week is to have the baby. Congratulations!
