Baby development

Blood circulation is fully functional and my immune system is as ready as it could ever be in my mother's belly.

Even my brain is fully grown and mature enough for life outside the womb. I am nestled in the pelvis and now waiting to see the light of day. It has become incredibly cramped in the womb and if my head is in place for delivery, that will limit my mobility. My movements are now largely restricted to pressing and sliding, although their frequency should remain the same. If my mother experiences a slowdown in my movements she should speak to a healthcare professional.
