36 st week of pregnancy: waiting for labour?

At 36 weeks of pregnancy, your baby has almost reached its final height and weight.

At this stage, your baby may weigh around 3.3 kg and measure 50 cm. You can go into labour at any time. You should know that for the time being, the mechanism for the onset of labour is still somewhat mysterious.

A biochemical dialogue between the placenta and the foetus is said to take place, resulting in the release of the contraction hormone oxytocin.
