baby in the tummy @ 37 weeks

15th Jan marks the official start of my maternity leave.. but then again to ease my rest further, I had decided to take leave today as well! hee.. quite bored at home facing the walls and do nothing as much, I had decided to post the below info so as to update you what has been going on in my tummy :D so here it is..

Your baby weighs close to 6.5 pounds / 2.8 kilograms and may be about 20 inches / 50 centimetres long from head to toe. Your baby's head is now cradled in your pelvic cavity -- surrounded and protected by your pelvic bones. This position clears some much-needed space for her growing legs and buttocks.

Many babies now have a full head of hair, with locks maybe around one inch / 2.5 centimetres long. But don't be surprised if her hair isn't the same colour as yours. Dark-haired couples are sometimes taken aback when their children are born with bright red or blond hair, and fair-haired couples likewise can produce babies with dark hair. And then, of course, some babies don't have any hair at all.
