Watch Your Baby's Growth

Growing Big: Weeks 31 to 34 of Pregnancy
Growing Big: Weeks 31 to 34 of Pregnancy

Your baby now weighs about three pounds, roughly the size of a melon. Get the scoop on how much more she'll grow before she's born--and what new developments she's making right now.

Your Changing Body

Your baby may be putting more pressure on your internal organs now as he or she grows in the uterus. This can cause heartburn, incontinence, and shortness of breath in the final months of your pregnancy, all of which are uncomfortable, but normal.

Your Developing Baby

Baby's lungs need some time to develop and mature completely, but they're getting stronger day by day.

Your Pregnancy

Good news! If your baby is born at week 32 or later, she or he has an almost perfect shot at both survival and a normal, healthy life. That said, you may want to familiarize yourself with signs of early labor, which you should go over with your doctor.
