My Baby - Week by Week Pregnancy

Week 37 - Getting into Position

Your baby is considered full term, even though the 40-week mark is still three weeks away!

He or she is almost 6.5 pounds and measures just over 19 inches in length, and has developed enough coordination so that he or she can grasp an object with his or her fingers, called the palmar grasp reflex.

This is a good time to consider how extensively you want your baby screened for diseases and conditions. The number of conditions a baby is tested for varies by state; however, every state screens for at least two. Expanded newborn screening is available through private companies and screens for up to 40 disorders.
