Body: Even though your lung capacity has increased, one can easily become short of breath when doing something strenuous. Becoming short of breath is normal and the child will recieve as much oxygen no matter how wheezy you feel. At the end of the pregnancy, the pressure on the arteries could get too big if you lie on your back, which could make both you and the child feel ill. Your midwife usually recommend that you lie on your side when you are sleeping. This is usually the position that feels the best anyway, al though it might be nice to have a pillow under your stomach to support it. In some counties you now have an extra ultrasound to check that the child is growing properly.

Baby: At this time the baby weights about 1500 grams and is approximately 40 centimetre long. The baby now has better control over its body temperature. The lungs are fully developed and the child is practicing by breathing down the amniotic fluid in them, often causing the baby to get hiccups. Toenails are growing more and more. The baby's kicks are now more as sharp pushes and one can easily distinguish the different body parts from eachother. Sometimes you may feel a sharp swiftly move across the stomach, it could be a knee or a foot. While the baby is having hiccups, you can also get an idea of which way the baby is angled, you can feel the hiccup the most from the baby's back.

Oh, and now I'll be gone for about a week, going to Germany with the family :) So you probably won't hear much from me until I'm home 10th again! So have a nice time now, and I promise to have the same :)
