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.

FYI Your gender prediction was correct. It is a boy!

I just wanted to say thank you! I'm so excited I'm in tears! I took your gender prediction test in August and it said I was having a girl...Since I was a little skeptical, I consulted with about 5 psychics since your gender prediction and they all said it was a boy...So I felt discouraged...Well, I had my ultrasound today and the tech said I was having a girl!!! I almost couldn't believe it, so I asked her to look again and it's definitely a girl...I saw it myself. This will be my last baby and I'm so grateful that it's the girl I wanted...Thanks to your gender prediction...I'm recommending your site to every new mother I see...Fortune Baby is AWESOME!!!

My husband and I decided to not find out the sex of our baby. But as the months went on I became anxious to know. I started looking online for old wives tales and different things that I could do, just to see what they said. I did the Chinese Calendar as well. Most things I did said girl, which was what I was thinking since this pregnancy is so different than with my son. I stumbled across your website and thought should I? I waited a few weeks and then finally caved in. You guys predicted that I would be having a girl. I wanted to let you guys that you were right! We had our baby girl on June 12th. I will recommend your website to anyone I know trying to conceive or pregnant! Thank you!

I took your gender prediction test in July 2009, and it came up with GIRL. I was a bit skeptical, and took a urine based test that clearly showed BOY. They will not tell you the gender on ultrasounds in our town, so I had to wait until November to find out, and it turns out I should have just gone on Fortune Baby's results after all--we had a girl! Thanks!
