Look who`s born! Show all comments
Week 36 starts on day 252 and goes up to day 259.
It is your 37e pregnancy week.

Length of your baby: 45 centimeter / 17.7 inches
Weight of your baby: 2900 gram / 6 lbs 6 ozs

The baby is nearly ready to come into this world and will probably have engaged in your pelvic cavity by now. It looks as if your bump is 'hanging' very low. Your baby can't change positions once he has engaged, He has less and less space to move in, and so you will feel less activity.

No airline will accept you as a passenger now. Logically enough, because the chance of your giving birth in flight is very real, and that is not something you'd be looking forward to either.

Overnight bag

Pack a case or overnight bag and keep it ready to take to hospital, even if you are planning to give birth at home. Then, if you do unexpectedly have to go to hospital, at least you'll have everything ready. You never know quite how the birth will go, after all. Pack what you'll need for yourself and the baby for one night in hospital. Then at least you'll have enough with you. This should include:

For you:
  • T-shirt or nightie to wear during labour
  • PJs or nightie to wear after the birth if they keep you in overnight
  • Socks (many women feel cold after the birth)
  • Plenty of underwear (pants maternity pads will fit in)
  • Toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, hairbrush, elastic bands for your hair, shampoo, soap etc.)
  • Sandals and/or slippers
  • Dressing gown (optional)
  • Clean clothes to go home in

For the baby:
  • At least 2 body suits and sleep suits or all-in-one suits
  • Hat
  • Socks (if the all-in-one suit doesn't have enclosed toes)
  • Cardigan/coat
  • Maxi-Cosi

Don't forget:
  • ID papers (if applicable)
  • Insurance card/papers
  • Appointment card
  • Mobile telephone and charger
  • Camera (Full battery and enough memory for lots of photos)
  • Video camera, if you have one

Some, but not all hospitals provide maternity pads, breast pads, nappies, bottles and formula. Check with your hospital in advance and if they are not provided, or if you are not sure, pack your own.

It's a good idea to have some nursing bras and loose fitting and/or front opening tops with you if you're planning to breastfeed.
