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.

Just wanted to say that your gender predictor test was correct. I had an ultrasound at 20 weeks and they said it was a boy. When I switched providers they also gave me an ultrasound at 28 weeks and I could clearly see it was definitely a boy. I took you gender test for fun and it was right. I am so excited because I have a little girl and now I will also have a baby boy.

Just to let you know that were I live they won't tell you the sex of your baby at all. So I took you test a few months ago. You said it was a girl and you were right. I really wanted a girl as this was our last, we have 6 children now and I had 2 girls first then 3 boys. I was really praying for a girl. Thank you so much.

Just wanted to send an e-mail - to let you know that your gender predictors were correct. I still have a hard time believing it's true that I am having a girl after having three beautiful blonde haired boys ages 4, 2, and 1. When my prediction last month from Fortune Baby said I was having a girl - I was hopeful but thought in the back of my mind that this baby will probably be a boy as well. That would have been fine since all anyone can really ask for is a healthy child. Although, I have always longed for a daughter and knew this pregnancy would be my last since I just turned 37. So - I found out this week at my 18 week ultrasound that I am in fact having a baby girl. I am giddy and totally over the moon. This is the best birthday present I could ever ask for. Thank you so much Fortune Baby! I feel so completely blessed and happy!

Hello! I did your gender predictor test and so desperate for someone to tell me I am going to have a girl, since I have 2 boys already and three children is my limit, so you can see how important to me to have a girl! Your due date is right on the money (Dec 1st), of course it will sooner, I always give birth 2 weeks early and very fast labor and delivery( 1st one in 45 minutes, second son in 42 minutes. So doc said I can pick my date in December so I do not into labor and deliver on the highway (I am about 20 min. from hospital), the doc said SHE might come even faster! HA! I do not call it the oven, I call it the microwave...F_A_S_T!!! Of course she is not here yet, but at least I can start buying PINK, and NOT BLUE (sick of blue, LOL).... I will say my parents thought I was CRAZY to pay someone to tell me what they predict, well worth my money... I will be writing in again to let you know when SHE does arrive.......... I BELIEVE! I BELIEVE! I BELIEVE!!!!!! THANK YOU
