You are now
With more and more fat layers being laid down, your baby is looking a little plumper every day, bless. Your baby's pretty active too as there's still room to kick around. There's also lots of brain development at this stage, increasing your baby's capacity to learn.

It's the 11th week before your baby's due - and your qualifying week for Statutory Maternity Pay, see Directgov for more info. You can take Additional Maternity Leave too, provided you've been with the same employer for a year, 11 weeks before you expect to give birth. Your antenatal classes will probably start about now and last for seven to eight weeks - you'll probably manage to complete the whole course before you give birth (not long now!).
If you're feeling tired of being pregnant, the end is in sight. You're well into the final trimester now, so there's really not long to go, but it's normal to wish it was all over - and to feel nervous. You may have noticed the start of Braxton Hicks, these are thought to be 'practice' contractions which don't usually hurt (but can feel a little intense at times).
