The Mom:

Almost to the end, only 8 weeks to go! There are still a few unlikely, but potential complications you should be aware of. The first is placenta previa. Placenta previa is rare, but is more common in women who have had more than one child. In placenta previa, the placenta either blocks or partially blocks the cervix. The pressure of the baby on the placenta can cause painless bleeding during the last trimester. If the obstruction is complete, it may require a Cesarean Section. You OB will be able to tell if you have placenta previa with an ultrasound. Another condition is abruptio placenta, this is when part of the placenta separates from the wall of the uterus. This will cause some pain and bleeding. If you experience this, it's important to call your doctor right away. If the abruption is large, your baby could be at risk.

Your uterus is approximately 5 inches above your navel. You may be able to feel your baby's buttocks as he moves about.

The Baby:
Baby now weighs about almost 4 pounds and is about 18.9 inches long. She will soon be settling in head down, to get ready for birth.
