Baby development at 37 weeks

Not full-term yet

The due date is getting too close now, but despite this, the doctors don’t consider your baby “full term” until 39 weeks are over. Spending the next two weeks in the womb allows your baby’s brain and lungs to fully mature to survive on their own. And that’s why if you’re planning to have a c-section, for example, your doctor will schedule it for no earlier than 39 weeks unless there’s a medical reason to intervene earlier than the 39th week.

Baby hair: What to expect

A large number of babies have a full head of hair that’s at birth, and with locks from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches long. And also some babies sport only peach fuzz. Don’t be worried if your baby’s hair isn’t the same color as yours. In any case, it may all fall out with time and grow back a different color.

Still kicking

And just because it’s so snug in your womb, at this moment your baby isn’t doing a lot of somersaults anymore, but despite all the amount of kicking should remain about the same.
