Is the size of a COTTONTAIL RABBIT
Baby weighs 2 to 3 pounds now and measures 15 1/2 to 16 inches. They are pretty close to their birth length and will do a lot more growing weight wise in the next couple weeks.
Braxton Hicks Contractions are little fake contractions that aren’t really fake but aren’t the real deal either. They are your uterus tensing up in random spots to get all of its muscles ready for the big day.
To settle these you can walk, move, change positions, take a shower, or try yoga. Avoid unnecessary interventions. Just don’t push, you may set yourself into early labor. We don’t want that.
Letting labor begin on its own is a big deal. I wasn’t very good at this, because at week 38 I was done. So, I walked and stretched, and ate all the spicy foods, and tried sex and everything else Google threw at me. Don’t be like me, don’t try to rush your baby.
