Your Body at Week 36
Welcome to week 36, that means there's only 4 weeks until your official due date!
From here on in, your baby will begin preparing for labour. They will have, if not soon begin to move down the birth canal. This means the head will be engaged in the pelvis, probably allowing yourself to breathe easier as everything won’t be so compacted upwards anymore.
Your pelvic ligaments and joints will continue to prepare for birth, which can lead to aches and pains in your pelvic area and an increasingly sore abdomen. Now may be a good time to jump on your BABYGO birthing ball to release any pressure you have down there.
Your Baby At Week 36
As mentioned before, your baby is getting ready for labour and to enter this world. At this point, their head is a lot smaller than earlier on in your pregnancy. However, by full term your baby’s head still remains the largest part of their body.
I bet your thinking, how in the world am I going to be able to give birth? Well, your baby’s skull is not fully fused together until much later on until after they are born. The brain is still protected by much softer bones, allowing the head followed by the rest of their little body to travel safely to the outside world.
