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.

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).

"Thanks for the awesome result! I used your online baby gender predictor and the result was a Boy. Few weeks later, our scan confirmed that we are having a baby Boy. We are excited and very happy! I will recommend your site to everyone."
"A GREAT BIG THANK YOU! We are having a girl as you predicted when I requested a four year gender selection test. We are so excited as we have 2 boys and they are looking forward to the arrival of a beautiful baby sister to love and cherish. Your gender predictor was also correct for my second child." read more...
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
I just wanted to say I was so hopeful after your gender predictor test because I am pregnant with my last child and I have already 2 girls. I had a 3D ultrasound done yesterday and I have a perfect picture of a little boy! Thank you so much
Hi, I just wanted to say thank you! I just got the results of my CVS test (similar to Amnio, but done earlier in pregnancy) and you were right! It's a girl!!! I can't believe it because I was sure it was a boy due how close to ovulation I conceived. I'm so thrilled because not only are we assured now that the baby has no chromosomal problems, (I was worried because I'm 40 now) but we were hoping for a girl....I can't believe you were right! I will definitely tell my friends about your service! I know you basically have a 50/50 chance of being right, but how do you really do it!? I'm amazed!
I did your baby gender prediction test early and amnio results confirmed that FortuneBaby was correct 100%. Thank you.
