Have you ever wondered what happens to you and baby in Week 37 of pregnancy?

To read Week 36, please click here.

Here is a detailed list of Week 37 pregnancy facts:

  • Between weeks 36 and 38, the baby’s head is likely to engage.
  • This is when it settles downward deep in your pelvis, ready for the birth.
  • You should feel some relief from the pressure in your abdomen when this happens which is why it is sometimes referred to as lightening.
  • Breathing will be easier now as the baby is no longer putting pressure on your diaphragm and lungs.
  • The fine hair that covers your baby body is beginning to wear off now.
  • The fetus has started to produce a hormone called cortisone which will help the lungs to become fully matured and help with breathing at birth.
  • Baby is now 47 centimeters long and weighs 2.7 kilograms.
