39 Weeks Pregnant

26 Jan
"Your baby’s ready to greet the world! He continues to build a layer of fat to help control his body temperature after birth, but it’s likely he already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds. (Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.) Your baby’s organs are fully developed and in place, and the outer layers of skin are sloughing off as new skin forms underneath. "
"The umbilical cord that carried nutrients from the placenta to your baby is now 20 inches long (50 centimeters) and is a half inch (1.3 centimeters) thick. Because your baby weighs about 7 pounds (3250 grams) and consumes all of the space in your uterus, it’s common for the umbilical cord to become knotted or wrapped around him.

Most of the vernix that covered your baby’s skin has disappeared, as well as the lanugo. Your body begins to supply the baby with antibodies through the placenta that will help the baby’s immune system fight infection for the first 6 months of life."
