It's difficult to believe that the baby is so big that it is impossible to observe the whole body during the USG examination. The average weight is around 1400 g and by the end of the pregnancy the weight may be doubled. There is less space in the uterus, so it is more likely that you will feel rather pushing than kicking. The amount of the amniotic fluid won't be increasing.
Now you provide your child not only with nutrients but also with antibodies through the umbilical cord. The baby will be more safe just after delivery.
