36 Weeks Pregnant

Can eating this one food help you have a quicker & easier labor? Plus, a checklist of everything you need to do before the big day!

  • Baby at 36 Weeks Pregnant 🚼

    Baby’s still about 20 inches long (basically full-grown height), but she’s probably up to about 6 pounds in weight this week. Yep, still on that half-a-pound-a-week plan.

    And while baby will be here before you know it, the last several weeks are still so important in terms of baby's development, so don't rush your bun in the oven—she's busy! G-R-O-W-I-N-G.

    Speaking of which, did you know your uterus was about the size of a peach when this whole pregnancy thing began? And by full-term, it will be able to hold a watermelon? 🍉 Your amazing body also grew an entirely new organ, called the placenta, during these past 8 or so months.

    So while changes in baby are incredible, so are the changes in Y🙂U! You're such a good mama already, and baby isn't even born yet. By the way, your uterus will return to its pre-pregnancy peachy size by around 6–8 weeks postpartum. (Phew!)

    Eating Dates During Pregnancy 💡

    Ok, mama, I’ve got a tough assignment for you this week. It's gonna take determination. Persistence. Tenacity.

    I'm asking you to eat six dates a day until your delivery.

    I know, I know. It's a tough job. But you're gonna want to do it.

    You see, several studies showed that moms who ate six dates a day for the last four weeks of their pregnancies had better births.

    And I have to say that anecdotally, in our community, I've seen women swear by this tasty little trick!

    Here's more info on eating dates during pregnancy. 🤰
