Your baby’s development at 37-40 weeks of pregnancy. At 37 weeks, your pregnancy is considered full-term. Your baby’s gut (digestive system) now contains meconium – the sticky green substance that’ll form your baby’s first poo after birth.
When a baby is fully formed?
By 24 weeks your baby’s organs are fully formed. The baby now has the face of a newborn baby, although the eyes are rather prominent because fat pads are yet to build up in the baby’s cheeks. The eyelids are fused until weeks 25 to 26 when they open. The skin is wrinkled, red and thin with little underlying fat.
When a baby is engaged?
Generally speaking, first babies tend to engage from about 34 to 36 weeks. However, some babies only engage once labour starts. If your baby hasn’t engaged by the time you go into labour, it’s likely that the power of your contractions will soon push him down. Similarly, if your baby’s head engages early, don’t panic.
