The Mom:

You can check on your baby by keeping daily kick count charts. This is done by recording the first 10 movements you feel each day. If you notice that baby's movements are becoming less frequent or if they stop altogether, you should contact your doctor.

You are also probably experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions. There are practice contractions, that aren't painful, but can be uncomfortable. You acutally have these practice contractions throughout your pregnancy, but aren't aware of them ususally until the final weeks. These contractions also help draw up the cervix and thin it for labor.

The Baby:
While baby's lungs still aren't mature yet, most of his other body systems are completely developed. His nerve cells and connections are functioning, and he can feel pain. You can even make him move if you push on your abdomen. He's almost 18 inches long, and weighs almost 3.5 pounds.
