Third trimester of pregnancy
3rd Trimester Duration: Weeks 27 through Week 41
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.
Did you know that gender ultrasound is not always accurate? Double check the gender of my baby
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.Learn about the first or second trimester in my pregnancy
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).

I used your gender prediction test (and yes! you were right- it was a GIRL!) I wanted to put her prediction in her baby book.) Thanks so much
Dear Fortune Baby... I was a bit skeptical when I came across your site. But I decided to give it a try and subscribed to the 1 year subscription. According to your baby gender predictor testing, I would have a boy in July. I am pleased to announce that your baby gender predictor test results were accurate. My husband and I are expecting our second son, Jacob in July. Thank you!!!!!!
I just wanted to thank you for an accurate result!! This is my 4th SON!!! We had him in October 2006!! Now, we've done your 4 year planner and have realized why we're only having sons!! Thanks again!
Hi, I have been meaning to contact you guys for quite sometime but just haven't got around to it until a friend of mine mentioned that her and her husband are thinking about getting pregnant and I told her about you guys! After I convinced my husband for us to try one more time (we have 2 boys and I was DESPERATE for a girl), I found your website. I bought the test results and found out that my chances were slim to have a girl and if I was going to I need to do it in Feb. 2005! Well I went off the pill in Oct. 2004 after showing my husband your baby gender prediction test results, of course he doesn't believe in that stuff but hey! Anyway, I found out we were pregnant on March 27th, 2005! The first thing I did was got on your website and made sure it said girl, then I looked it see what the Chinese calendar had to say, it said BOY, so I was a little scared but still had that hope! Although we would have been happy with whatever we were given! So ultrasound time came along and I was so nervous, we had the whole family there (dad and big brothers). The baby was moving like crazy and the tech was having a really hard time getting the measurements she needed let alone get the sex of the baby. So then finally she thought she saw something, so she calls in another tech to confirm. At this point my husband was not in there because of there protocol to get what they need first. So she looks at me and says do you want to know now or wait until we get your husband in here....I didn't even think, I said I want to know NOW! So the words were....IT'S A GIRL!!! I couldn't believe it, I started crying on the table and both techs were crying too! My husband is still mad that I knew before him but I got to be the one to tell him and the big brothers!! So our little girl was born in November 2005 and she has totally completed our family in so many ways. Although people think I am crazy, I totally believe that little piece of paper that I printed off in 2004 that told me she was going to be a girl! And as for my friend, I am sending her your website address and if I have to purchase the results for her I will, that is how much I believe in this! Thanks for all your help and I don't know how you do it but it works!!
