Your baby now weighs approximately 3.75 pounds/ 1.7 kilograms and is about 17 inches/ 42 centimetres long from head to toe. Although his lungs won't be fully developed until just before birth, your little one is inhaling amniotic fluid to exercise his lungs and practice breathing.
Some babies have a head of hair already, others have only a few wisps. Thick hair at birth doesn't necessarily mean thick hair later on but children with fine hair in childhood usually have thinner hair in adulthood.
If your baby is a boy, his testicles should be descending from his abdomen into his scrotum. Sometimes however, one or both testicles won't move into position until after birth. In two-thirds of all baby boys who have undescended testicles at birth, the condition corrects itself by the boy's first birthday.
You're probably gaining a pound/ 450 grams a week, largely because your baby is likely to gain more than half his birthweight during the seven weeks before birth. Make sure you are eating well in these last few weeks.
Drink more water
You may have noticed that your ankles and feet looking rather swollen. This is called oedema (meaning swelling) and is perfectly normal during pregnancy, if annoying. It is caused by fluid retention in your body's tissues. You can help to relieve it by drinking more water during the day and by cutting down on salty foods such as olives and salted nuts.
You need vitamin K in your last trimester because it helps blood to clot. If you are pregnant and have low levels of vitamin K you may bleed more at birth, and babies with low levels can also bleed internally. This is why babies are given vitamin K when they are born. Make sure you have foods with plenty of vitamin K in late pregnancy and when you are breastfeeding. Good sources of vitamin K include green leafy vegetables, cantaloupe melon, cauliflower, green beans, wholemeal bread and pasta.
