Pregnancy - Week 36

Email Print

If your baby is born this week, chances are that she won't be kept in the neo-natal unit care. Her lungs are still partly under construction, but developed enough to manage their own breathing process. All the senses should function properly and the shape of the head should suit the passing process during the labour and birth, with its bones not fused together yet.

She is around 2.5 Kg (5.5lbs) this week and measures nearly 50 cm (about 20 inches).
