35 Weeks 8 months!

My baby doesn't have much room to maneuver now that she's over 18 inches long and weighs 5 1/4 pounds. Because it's so snug in my womb she isn't likely to be doing somersaults anymore, but the number of times she kicks should remain the about the same. Her kidney are fully developed, and her liver can process some waste products. Most of her basic physical development is now complete. She'll spend the next few weeks putting on weight. By this time my practitioner will see me every week. from 34-37 weeks the doctor do Group B streptococci (GBS) test. This is to check the vagina if there is a bacteria. If you're a GBS carrier, you'll get IV antibiotics during labor, which will greatly reduce your baby's risk of infection.
