Finally full term!
The baby is full-term this week and eagerly waiting to greet the world! Full term is 39 to 40 weeks. Note better that Babies born before 37 weeks are preterm, 37 to 38 weeks is an early term, and 41 weeks is the late term, and those born after 42 are post-term now you know.
Still plumping up
He/she still continues that is to build a layer of fat that helps to control his body temperature that’s after birth, but likely that the baby already measures about 20 inches and weighs a bit over 7 pounds. (but Boys tend to be slightly heavier than girls.)
