Pregnancy Week 36: Baby Growth

Your baby is now a growth express! S/he is gaining almost 30 grams every day and is close to 18½ inches in length.

Her/his skin was covered with fine, downy hair called lanugo but now that is slowly beginning to shed. While most of the lanugo will have shed before your baby is born, some might still be visible. The remaining hair will be gone in the first few weeks after birth.

Your baby will swallow the lanugo as it mixes with the amniotic fluid and this will form a black, tar-like mix in the intestine which will be passed as bowel movements on the first day of life.
