Every married woman wishes to become a mother in life. But she has to undergo a lot of pain. Sometimes the child or the mother dies. But modern day technologies have made childbirth quite simpler.

These rules have to be followed by her from the 1st day of pregnancy to the last week, till the child is born. So a proper pregnancy chart has to be followed. In fact this pregnancy chart is very useful to the mother.  Different pregnancy tests show how the child is growing. This is quite helpful because it shows whether the child is healthy or not. Moreover a proper diet chart is also to be maintained.


The Symptoms of Pregnancy Discomforts in 39th Week Pregnant Mother


Now the baby is fully grown in the mother’s womb. In the 39th week of pregnancy the average size of the baby is nearly 20.5 inches or 51 centimeters. The length is from top to the tip of the toe. The weight of the baby is nearly 3.4 kg. But the weight is an approximate weight. The weight varies from child to child. Sometimes the amniotic fluid comes out of the vagina. This may be the case in some women. It is nearly pale yellow in color. As the baby’s skin is properly formed so the color changes from pink to pale yellow. The nails are also well formed. The umbilical cord sometimes gets rounded by the neck. This is the time when it becomes quite difficult for the doctor to remove it, if it’s a cesarean operation. In case of normal delivery it is easily removed. The head of the baby gets perfectly placed near the opening. It gives a constant pressure on the opening. This is when the labor pain increases. If still there is problem in coming out, external pressure has to be applied from outside. 


The pain increases as time passes by. If the baby doesn’t come out of the opening it becomes more painful for the mother. But still she bears the pain for her child.

This helps the child to get smoothly out of the opening. After a few days it will return to its normal shape.
