You are now
Your baby is now fully grown and ready for the world. Nice and plump. Your baby has a thick layer of subcutaneous fat to draw on for its first few days of life after birth. Your true bundle of joy.
See how your baby grows in our week by week image gallery.
Your big day is almost here... it won't be long before your newborn baby's in your arms. But if you're still waiting come the end of the week, don't worry, only a small percentage of babies arrive on their due date. If you're getting impatient - it's understandable! Try to take your mind off things by filling your time with activities instead of counting down the days/hours/minutes/!
