Pregnancy Week 36


Now is the time to get to know what the birth is all about and how it starts.

If you work, it is normal to stop working now. It is normal to give birth between weeks 38 and 42, so now you can give birth at any time. However, be prepared that it can still be a full month's wait.

Pregnancy Week 33-36

The fetus

It gets narrower and narrower in the uterus for each week. This often causes the child to seem calmer. But you should still feel movements as often as you have in recent weeks. The baby is not counted as premature if it is born now. It is now about 45 cm long and weighs 2,500 grams.

What does the birth look like?

There are several signs that the birth is approaching. The first sign of a normal birth is the contractions of the uterine muscles. Initially, these contractions are experienced as irregular outbreaks of general stomach or back pain. As the birth approaches, they become more regular and there is less time between them.

From now on, it is more common with frequent pregnancy checks. For more information about pregnancy and maternity fashion, please see BESTAAH.COM maternity nightwear. As the child slides further down the pelvis it becomes easier to breathe. But then you probably notice that the pressure on the bladder gets bigger and that you have to go to the toilet more often. If the child is not yet lying head down in the pelvis but in a seat invitation - or even more unusual, in a cross-invitation - you should undergo a check at the hospital so that you can plan how to give birth. The obstetricians may make a reversal attempt - that is, they try to turn on the child so that the head falls down.

The fetus

This week, the fat settles on the baby's cheeks. In addition, strong suction muscles help to make the face more ready. Despite your increased calcium intake, the baby's leg body is still so soft that the head often looks a little deformed immediately after birth. Take it easy. It is completely harmless and the head quickly returns to its normal shape. The fact that the head is a bit malleable also makes delivery easier.


Caesarean sections are now used much more often than before. 17% of all births in Sweden are now done with caesarean sections. As in the case of a normal delivery via the vagina, the child's father or any other person the woman wants to be present with during the procedure (in planned Caesarean sections). Milk production and all other hormonal processes in the mother's body also continue as usual, whether or not the baby is born with a caesarean.

Pregnancy Week 34


Now the uterus has reached its highest point. You probably notice that it is heavy and difficult to breathe properly. Many people have trouble sleeping. The stomach is large and heavy, and it is difficult to find a comfortable sleeping position. The child is perhaps worried, and you often have to go up and pee. Also, you may be awake and ponder over the birth and the time that follows. Even if you can't sleep, it is important that you try to rest as often as you can.

The fetus

In many firstborns, the fetus screws the head down into the pelvis - it is said that the head is fixed. The fetus is gaining weight by 250 grams per week and the immune system is preparing for life outside the womb. Antibodies are transmitted from you to the child via the placenta.

High head

The fetal head should normally attach to the pelvic entrance at least two weeks before delivery to the firstborn. If the head is still above the pelvic entrance after this time, it is called the high fetal head position. In grandmothers, the head often does not fix itself until early during childbirth itself.

Pregnancy Week 33


The body is constantly working on getting ready for childbirth. The prechargers become more common and perhaps a little more unpleasant. Do you make sure you get enough calcium? The fetus takes off your layers to build up the legs and make them hard. Thus, it is first and foremost you who can get a deficit of calcium, which results in weaker bones and teeth.

The fetus

The fetus can separate light from darkness and attract the foot if you tickle it. The heart beats at 120-160 beats per minute.

The fetus is now about 42 cm long and weighs 2 kilos.

Postpartum Depression

Postpartum depression is the most common birth complication. The condition can range from minor problems to severe depression. You must be afflicted for most of the day, more or less every day for at least two weeks, to be considered to have a birth depression.
