37 Weeks Pregnant

As you finish 36 weeks of pregnancy and enter the 37th, at the end of this week you will finally be called ‘full term’. That sounds good, right? So be happy. You will see your child any time now. In the meantime read through our short guide to managing pregnancy. 

Changes in Your Body at Week 37 Pregnancy

As you soon step into the 38th week of pregnancy, the baby uses your pelvis as cushion. So expect a lot of pressure on it. It is natural for you to feel exhausted now.

Your breasts will feel quite heavy now as they are full of milk and ready for feeding. Sometime the colostrum might even leak out.

You may notice some stretch marks around your breasts, waist and hips at 37 weeks of pregnancy. 

Your Baby’s Development at Week 37 Pregnancy

Although most babies born during this time do just fine, it is better if they make till the end of the 39th week. Hence doctors will try and induce labour or perform a Cesarean delivery before that unless it is medically required.

At 37 weeks of pregnancy the baby’s lungs are well developed at this time and it slowly gets into the rhythm of inhaling and exhaling.

The hair on the head has been growing all this while. And depending on the genetics he or she should have a full head of hair now.

Week 37 Pregnancy Tips and Advice

This week the doctor might do an examination of your pelvic region. He will check on:

  • If the cervix is soft or firm (it softens out during labour)
  • If the amniotic fluid is leaking
  • The position of the baby
  • How far he baby has moved to the birth canal
  • The shape of your pelvic bones

Knowing what to expect will reduce a lot of your tensions. So have your birthing plan ready. Also ask your doctor what you should do when your labour pain starts or your water breaks.

At 37 weeks of pregnancy keep your hospital bags ready and don’t panic. Keep all emergency numbers handy so that you know who to call. For example that of your spouse, close friend and your doctor.

Week 37 Fun

Go for a drive with your spouse and indulge in a hot chocolate fudge sundae.

Start with a yummy breakfast, read celeb gossip magazines, watch some cartoons on television and then go off to sleep. Enjoy the moment and try not to stress. 

Did you get a pelvic region examination done? Why did the doctor do it? Is nervousness creeping inside you? Join our due date club here and share your thoughts with other mums-to-be.

“I’m really worried,” exclaimed Nitin.

“Why?” Arjab asked.

“Well, my wife read ‘A Tale of Two Cities’ and we had twins. Later she read ‘The Three Musketeers’ and we had triplets. Now she’s reading ‘Birth of a Nation’!”

Who's the Boss?

A man goes into a pet shop to buy a parrot. The shop owner points to three identical looking parrots on a perch and says:

"The parrot to the left costs 500 dollars".

"Why does the parrot cost so much?" the customer asks.

The owner says, "Well, it knows how to use a computer."

The customer asks about the next parrot and is told "That one costs 1,000 dollars because it can do everything the other parrot can do plus it knows how to continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today

Stress might be getting the better of a household member today. This person feels emotionally volatile. The least irritation could set off a temper tantrum. Try to ease the pressure by staying out of the way. Don’t offer advice, however well intentioned it may be. This person needs to come to terms with whatever is bothering him or her. Distance yourself and do your own thing.

You could wake up this morning, look around, and decide you want to spend as much time as possible working on your home. You could be bored with the decor and want to make some changes. Spend the day coming up with ideas and then tonight try to analyze the situation and see what’s feasible now. Most likely you’ll be able to do some but not all of what you want.

Business or financial matters and anything requiring discipline will be easier if you have helpers. Consult with experts, but don’t trust everything you hear. Someone could accidentally steer you in the wrong direction. At the end of the day, trust your common sense and carefully make your own decisions.

When you are under stress, be your own best cheerleader. This continues to be a time when may have to do your best within limited circumstances. Friends are loyal, though relationships change in unanticipated ways. Complications and roadblocks can bring unexpected benefits. Indulge in health and beauty treatments. Do not just do things for others.

Upsets in the home could occur today. You and other members of your household are on edge and liable to snap at the least provocation. Someone could get all flustered over a minor problem and storm out. Don’t worry. At day’s end everyone should see events in their proper perspective and all be friends again. Hang in there.

This can be a day of powerful challenges. Pride or stubbornness can make things worse. If you’re feeling frustrated, do your best to keep your commitments and don’t take on anything new. Be as compassionate and helpful as possible toward people you meet. Don’t forget we’re all in this together.

You may be having a difficult time getting your opinions across to others. For some, your ideas may seem too self-centered. For others, you may come across as insensitive to the situation. Do your best to understand what others are telling you. Don’t be surprised if you don’t receive the loving strokes that you feel you deserve. This is a day for you to observe and learn.

You may spend much of your day trying to sort out financial matters for yourself, your job, or perhaps for a friend or relative. A lot of phone calls, and a lot of research, perhaps on the Internet, could be necessary in order to accomplish this. Whatever you decide to do, you’ll attack it with determination and feel a great deal of satisfaction when you’re done. Go to it!

You’re probably feeling especially sexy, and you might want to take a lover out for a romantic dinner. You would especially enjoy going all out, experimenting with a new outfit, scent, or hairstyle. On a more mundane note, investments of either time or money should pay off today, as could hard work performed in the past. Have a great day!
