Pregnancy - Week 39

Email Print

This week your baby's body prepares the hormones necessary for birth and the period after birth. His lungs are developing continuously, still producing surfactant, the substance that stops the air cells from sticking together, although they would be perfectly up to the challenge if your baby was born this week.

He should be around 3-3.7 (around 7lbs) KG and around 50-52 cm (20-21 inches).
