This week, sperm has met egg and, voilà! Your baby was created! While many people believe that the egg passively waits to meet the flood of sperm, recent research shows that eggs are actually quite picky. They choose which sperm to let in.

This is probably about the earliest you would be able to have a positive home pregnancy test. Your little embryo has now travelled to the uterus and implanted in the lush, fertile uterine wall.

As your baby nestles into its new home, you may start to notice more "pregnancy" symptoms including:

  • Mood swings

  • Nausea/morning sickness

  • Feeling bloated

  • Tender breasts

  • Feeling tired

Your baby's kidneys are starting to make urine and your baby is starting to grow peach-fuzz-like "fur" all over their body called lanugo. Lanugo helps to hold vernix on your baby's skin to protect them in their watery environment. Vernix is your baby's first "lotion:" A creamy, cheesy substance that helps keep your baby moisturized.

Hello baby! Around the 18th or 19th week of pregnancy you may feel the flutters and stirrings of your baby's movements. If you have an anterior placenta (a placenta that implants at the front of your uterus) you may have extra cushioning that makes it difficult to feel your baby's movements until later. Don't worry if you don't feel anything yet!

Your baby's heart is beating about double what yours is (120-160 beats per minute). Your baby's first "moisturizer," called vernix, is forming on your baby's skin to protect it and help them keep in body heat.

Congratulations! You've reached 20 weeks, roughly the half-point of your pregnancy. Your "due" date is calculated at the 40 week mark, but baby is considered full term at 37 weeks. A normal range for pregnancy is 37-42 weeks. That's a window of over a month that your baby could be born in! Don't get too attached to your "due" date (call it a "guess"date), it's not an expiration date! On average, people pregnant for the first time tend to go about 10 days past the "guess" date.

Often you will have a 20-week ultrasound that will check to make sure your baby is growing normally and all their organs and systems are where they are supposed to be.

Around this time you may have your glucose screening test to test for Gestational Diabetes. Typically, you are asked to fast (not eat) and then consume a set amount of sugar. Exactly one hour later, your midwife or doctor will draw your blood to check your glucose levels. If you "fail" your first test, try not to worry. The first test usually has a high false-positive, meaning you may test positive for Gestational Diabetes and not actually have it. This would mean you need to go in for a three-hour glucose test which is more accurate, but more inconvenient so they don't recommend every person do it.

At this point you are likely feeling lots of kicks and rolls as your baby explores their watery world. They are also learning which way is up and which is down and may babies will migrate towards a head-down position to prepare for birth. While most babies present head-first, some babies decide butt first is the way to go. This is called breech presentation. While there are different risk factors to consider with a breech baby, it is possible for baby to be born vaginally with a skilled care provider.

Breathe a sigh of relief! Although not ideal, babies born at this week or after have a pretty good survival rate, though it may require weeks in the NICU and other medical interventions. The longer your baby can stay in the womb up to 42 weeks the better!

By now all of your baby's organs are fully functioning, except the lungs which still need to develop a bit more as you tick closer to your birth.

If your baby were born now they would have an excellent chance of thriving with just a little medical help, but of course it's best for babies to cook at least until 37-42 weeks. Labor is usually started by a chain reaction of hormones started by the baby when the lungs develop, so it's best to let baby decide when to be born if there are no other complications.

Your baby's bones are now completely formed. The bones of your baby's skull aren't fused together yet. These plates form indentations in their skull called "fontanelles" or "sutures." This helps baby fit through the birth canal and is why many babies appear "cone-headed," but don't worry, their heads don't stay that way for long! The bones of the skull don't fuse until early adulthood when your kid's brain has stopped growing.

If your baby is male, the testicles have probably fully descended. If your baby is female her clitoris is fully formed.

If you have a boy you are also faced with the decision to either leave your son intact or perform a circumcision. A circumcision is a cosmetic procedure that peels back your baby's foreskin (which is attached to the head of the penis with the same tissue that attaches your fingers to your fingernails) then cuts it off. The forskin has many sexual and protective functions. It protects the head of the penis, keeping it soft and lubricated, and has more nerve endings than in the entire penis. There is also an issue of consent since a newborn can't decide what's best for them. Should a person, male or female, have a say in what happens to their body and what their body looks like if the situation is not life-threatening?

Your baby's sucking muscles are now strong, they are ready to nurse! Your baby is also swallowing amniotic fluid which will become meconium, your baby's first stool (poop). Meconium is brownish/blackish/greenish in color and has a tarry consistency. It is thought that meconium is sterile (does not contain beneficial or harmful microbes) because the baby hasn't been exposed to them through the vaginal canal or through breastmilk. Meconium is like a "placeholder," holding the bowels open as they develop.

Congratulations! Your baby is now considered "early term!" This means your baby is term (ready for birth) but still on the early side.

  • 37 and 38 weeks are "early term"

  • 39 and 40 weeks are "full term"

  • 41 weeks is "late term"

  • 42 weeks is "post term" (baby will likely need to be induced if you reach 42 weeks)

You can give birth anywhere from 37-42 weeks. That's a 5-week window! Sometimes it's best to just assume that baby will be late and be pleasantly surprised if not. Most first time pregnant people will go an average of 10 days past their "guess" dates. For more about dates, visit Evidence Based Birth's article.

Your baby's brain and muscles are functioning better every day! Babies that are born 39+ weeks have the best sucking reflexes. Your baby is actually hard-wired from birth to self-attach at the breast, isn't that cool? Letting your baby self-attach is a great way to imprint baby at the breast and stimulate your body to make milk. To see more, check out the "breast crawl."

Babies during this time period are growing at different rates. Normal weights for babies range from about 5.5-10 pounds (2.5-4.5 kg). Don't be alarmed! Your baby's body is made to mold and maneuver the birth canal. Your pelvis isn't made of cement. It's connected with flexible cartilage so you can change positions and allow baby to have lots of space to move down.

Remember to keep doing your Spinning Babies daily exercises as often as you can!

Congratulations, you've reached your "guess" date! As we've discussed before, this is not an expiration date. Many healthy births occur in the 40-42 week window, but of course many people feel very "done" at this point. Not being able to sleep, feeling uncomfortable… these all can make the last few weeks of your pregnancy drag on.

Try and practice some self care and relish the last few moments you have holding your baby inside your body. Sit in the sunshine, journal, take a bath, try and enjoy each moment as much as you can. Your baby will be in your arms soon!

Your baby looks exactly like a newborn. All the systems are in place and mature enough to work in the outside world. Now baby is just continuing to add fat stores to help them regulate their blood sugar and temperature after birth.

At this point you may be wondering "will this ever really happen?!" Don't worry! You are still in the normal range of time for birthing your baby. Your baby is also ready to meet you!

During this week you may have a 41 week biophysical profile, a test to check in with baby to make sure all is well on the inside. This test usually entails an ultrasound to check amniotic fluid levels and may include a nonstress test (hooking you up to a monitor to listen to baby for a while).

Hello baby! Your birth is truly around the corner and we can't wait to meet you! At the 42 week mark, most midwives and doctors want you to give birth soon, but some may be ok with going a few days past if you pass another biophysical profile. As human beings we are not machines. Many people grow babies faster or slower and cook babies at different rates.

A post-date pregnancy doesn't automatically mean your baby will be enormous either, many babies are 7-8 pounds at 42 weeks. Some "guess" dates might be off as well since your cycle may have been longer or shorter than the average, or perhaps you ovulated on a different day. See more info on "due" dates.
