Pregnancy in Month 9

It is the month when it is almost time to get prepared for the labor. The baby becomes pretty big by now. It has a constraint for space to move about freely. Thus it kicks less and rolls or squirms more and more. The hands and leg muscles become stronger. As it does not get enough space, thus it shapes itself in a curled posture with knees bent to the chest and chin resting on to the chest. The hands and the legs remain crossed over. The nails are also grown of the fingers as well as the toes. The size of the head of the baby increases and at this stage it has the maximum amount of brain growth. The secretion of amniotic fluid is at the highest level. Generally all the babies have an inverted position with the head on the vagina. It is around twenty one inches in length and weighs about around six pounds. The skin colour starts changes to pink from red. The mother has lots problem at this stage. They suffer from constipation, breathing trouble, trouble due to frequent contraction and relaxation of the uterine muscles and sleeplessness as well.
