What happens in Month 9 of Pregnancy?
Your baby is completely developed. You are almost there, to deliver your baby. Ninth month is the final stage of your pregnancy. You can expect your little one to arrive at any time in the coming weeks. Now your baby might will weigh more than six pounds. Nervous system and the immune system are maturing, but still adding the body fat that he/she’ll need to regulate the body temperature. The brain is still making new neurons to make more connections. Your baby’s nails are fully grown and now reach the end of the finger and toes. His/her movements are restricted due to lack of space. Your baby starts to signal to produce more estrogen to induce labor pain. You might experience severe neck and back pain. Keep eating your food in small portions. This will make you feel better. If you experience pain or severe discomfort, visit the doctor to check the dilation to predict when labor will begin. If you are reaching forty-one or forty-two weeks, your doctor may use ultrasound to see if your baby has enough amniotic fluid. If your baby is fine, the doctor will schedule an induction of labor.
