The third trimester is the last trimester of the pregnancy and at the end of it most babies are born. In the 3rd trimester the baby develops rapidly and most of the organs like brain, heart and lungs are developing at a very fast pace now. Simultaneously, the baby is also gaining weight very rapidly in the mother’s womb. The birth weight of the baby is determined in this trimester for a pregnant woman.
The 3rd trimester is generally calculated as the time period between the 28th week and the 36th week of gestation. So, this is generally speaking and if you want to calculate for your own purpose then you can use any online trimester calculator.
Most of the online calculators take details like the date of the last menstruation period and the general monthly cycle and then calculate an estimate date of the 3rd trimester. These calculators also give you an estimate birth date fro the baby. However, there is no guarantee as to when the baby will be born actually.
In this trimester, the baby is more active and also you will feel the baby kicking more often. You can feel its head clearly and some babies who are very active will let you know by constantly moving. Babies can hear others voices in this trimester even though they are in your womb. They respond to music and also touch. The 3rd trimester is usually considered the most beautiful phase of the pregnancy because everything seems so real during this period.
