31 Weeks Pregnant

Your Baby is the Size of a Coconut

The baby's range of motion has increased a lot by this point. It can turn its head, kick and somersault, and it may even feel like it is pedaling a little bicycle in there. All five of its senses have formed as well, and they will continue to develop for the next eight weeks or so until your baby is born. You may have also noticed more defined patterns of wakefulness and sleep, although these things may not be exactly in tune with yours!

Your Pregnancy

You may notice the muscles in your uterus tightening now and then. These painless and irregular "contractions" are normal, but more frequent or painful ones can be a sign of preterm labor. By the way, do you have a birthing plan yet? Speak to your doctor or your labor coach to discuss what the gameplan is.

Some babies suck their thumb so much while in the womb that they're born with a calloused thumb!
