Before the lack of sleep, you can have alterations in the ability to concentrate and in memory, a permanent desire to already have your baby to be able to develop all the expectations that have been generated during pregnancy, feelings of incapacity and impotence before responsibility Of the care of your unborn child and of yourself.

Baby ready

In the early third trimester of pregnancy, your baby measures approximately 35 centimeters and has a weight of 1,135 grams. It is at this stage, and especially from 30 to 32 weeks, when greater weight gain achieves to achieve by 40 weeks a size of 50 centimeters and weight between not less than 2,500 and not more than 3,800 grams.

In addition, several organs continue to develop. Although all are already formed, they are maturing in the final stage for preparation at birth and to deal with extrauterine life. Then the baby is accommodated: because the buttocks are the most bulky portion of his body, they will occupy the wider site of the uterus, which is the bottom, and the head will occupy the lower portion. Sometimes the baby will not be head, that is, it will be buttocks.

In the third trimester of pregnancy the volume of the amniotic fluid also increases and continues until the weeks 34 to 36. The placenta also has changes within a maturation process.

All these changes in general will have different effects: your baby’s movements do not decrease at the end of the pregnancy, what happens is that your perception will be different; You will no longer feel like blows or punches or kicks, but you will feel like rotating movements, as if your child were spinning. This description of movements is also associated with periods of greater stillness, because your baby has longer periods of sleep, which are nothing more than changes that tend to adapt when born.

After 36 weeks, amniotic fluid decreases, due to changes in placental circulation, due to placental maturation. This ultimately results in less fetal urine output, resulting in less amniotic fluid.
