Well there’s just no more room, so it’s a good job that your baby's growth slows down in the last two weeks!
Your baby’s bowels contain all the waste products built up in the past few weeks. Known as meconium, this is a black, tarry substance which usually comes out as a poo in the first days after birth.
Did you know that only 5% of babies are born on their due date? Most women go into labour between 38 and 42 weeks, so the big event could be happening any time now!
