Week 37 - 38: Nearing The Finish Line
Congratulations! Your baby has reached full term. Your baby is ready to see the world!
With your baby about 2.7 kg, you are now burning a lot more calories and are prone to feeling hotter. At this stage, you might feel warmer in temperature as your baby is getting heavier. To cool off, use cold gel masks and drink lots of water.
Your breasts are also ready for breastfeeding. Colostrum, that thin yellow liquid, may start leaking from your breast. Control it using a breast pad.
Your partner in parenting,

Your baby now weighs anywhere between 6 ½ to 9 pounds and will gain half a pound each during this month.
