Third trimester of pregnancy


3rd Trimester Duration: Weeks 27 through Week 41
fetal development

During the third trimester, you will probably see your doctor more often as it is a time of rapid growth. However, the time is soon arriving so be prepared. Week 27 and 28 will bring further development for the baby's brain and lungs. Your own body will experience breathlessness as the baby grows and your abdomen pushes into your lungs. At this time, the baby will also be able to hear sounds from within the womb.

fetal development

By week 31, a baby may be born prematurely and survive. Take a sigh of relief. Most of its body organs are complete, and it will now only be gaining weight and size in order to be strong and healthy. The baby will shed its layer of hair, blink, and prepare for its entrance into the world. The rest of the trimester tests your physical capacities. The baby continues to increase in size and weight, and he/she puts pressure on your abdomen, back and your lungs. You will urinate more frequently and experience fatigue. Psychologically, you may become cranky.

Sex during third trimester
It's absolutely ok to have sex during pregnancy third trimester. Some doctors even recommend to have sex close to your due date to make your labor start sooner. Since because of the extra weight, you might feel uncomfortable, try to experiment to find which position works best.
Vomiting in third trimester
Vomiting and nausea in third trimester could be a sign of labor. If you think you are in labor call your doctor. However, some women still have morning sickness during their third trimester as well as during their first trimester.
Third trimester ultrasound
Most doctors will do at least one ultrasound during the third trimester to measure the baby, and check the development to make sure everything is normal. You might also get one at 36 weeks if the baby is in the head-down position (breech).

Fortune Baby Gender Predictor Reviews


Thousands of happy moms around the world successfully used Fortunebaby gender prediction test. We are delighted to share their gender prediction reviews about their experience with Fortune Baby.

My husband and I decided that we would always have three children. So far we have two girls that we love but I knew how much it would mean to him to also have a little boy. One of my co-workers told me that her sister-in-law knew of a website named FortuneBaby.com that worked for her and eight of her friends. She actually planned all three of her children with the Fortune Baby website (which worked each time). So I figured I would give it a chance. Everyone I work with and I were on pins and needles wondering if the website worked. Well when I went for my twenty-week sonogram the results were that IT WAS A BOY!!!! My husband was thrilled and I was in shock that the website worked. Thank you so much for helping me give my husband a son.

Just wanted to let you guys know that this website is great! i have two boys already and very much wanted a little girl. I tried your site when i was about 2 months pregnant. You guys predicted it was a girl. I was very skeptical because everything else i did said it was another boy. I went for my 19th week ultrasound appointment today and you guys were right, I'm having a girl! I'm so happy i can't contain myself! THANKS!!!!!!!

I took your baby gender predictor test in December when I was about 10 weeks pregnant and your gender predictor said that I was having a girl which is what I wanted. I just got my results from my amniocentesis this morning and SHE is normal. Thank you sooooo much. I told my pregnant co-worker about this site and she is going to try it. She wants a girl too.

I just wanted to let you know that I tried your baby gender predictor test to find out when I would be able to conceive a boy not thinking it would actually work. I did the four year prediction. And I conceived in September 2008 and due in June 2009. According to my test results I am having a boy and Guess what Got an Ultrasound on the 12th of February . I am Most definitely having a boy.. Thank you so much.. Your baby gender predictor test works and I have recommended your site to several friends thanks again!
