Description:You may feel ready to meet your baby, but your baby may not be ready to meet the world. Important developments occur throughout pregnancy—especially in the final months and weeks.
32 weeks pregnant It’s too early… Although your baby’s lungs are still developing, he or she can practice breathing.
35 weeks pregnant It’s still too early… Your baby’s brain develops the fastest at the end of your pregnancy.
37 weeks pregnant Almost there... Your baby is quickly adding weight. If your baby is born too small, he or she may need extra support to grow healthy.
39+ weeks pregnant You made it! Congratulations! If you have a healthy pregnancy, wait at least 39 weeks until delivery. Let your baby come naturally, on his or her own time.
