Is the size of a MEERKAT
Baby can now swallow and is covered in lanugo. Which, is a fine hair they will lose most of right before birth. Has karate skills now and is kicking and flipping everywhere. Not only can you feel it, but you can see it now.
I think the best advice I could give you is DO NOT WATCH BIRTHING VIDEOS. Okay, that may be a little harsh, but a lot of times they do more harm than good. When I watched one, yeah I only watched one- I decided pregnancy was no longer for me and birthing this crotch goblin was out of the question.
But seriously, unless you know they are depicted of safe and healthy births, don’t do it. The wrong videos can scare you, make you tense, and stress. We don’t need that. The ideal video should inspire you and give you confidence. It should empower you to achieve a healthy birth. If it doesn’t, turn it off, immediately.
