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’!”

The Boss is always Right

When you take a long time, you're slow.
When your boss takes a long time, he's thorough.

When you don't do it, you're lazy.

When doing something without being told, you're overstepping your authority.

Your Fortune For Today
Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

Relax more and think about the sort of life you want to create for yourself. This is a good day to be more calm and optimistic. A spiritual energy at work supports health and healing. It may take some time for your dreams to be realized, but perseverance will bring results.

Today you could be faced with a bunch of people from out of town that you’ve never met before. You’re likely to find this exciting and stimulating, but you could also feel a bit flustered. You might also not be at your most outgoing right now. This could be a better day to listen than to try to talk. Sometimes that impresses people more than anything you might say.

This is a good day to make a list and work through it. Try to stay organized. Contact with people should be pleasant and productive. You’ll be sociable and relaxed. Someone who is more withdrawn and perhaps going through a hard time can benefit from your kindness and encouragement.

You may be looking forward to talking on the phone with someone dear who lives far away, but circumstances beyond your control could get in the way. Perhaps you keep missing each other, or problems with computers or phones throw a monkey wrench into the works. Don’t let this dim your enthusiasm. Once you reach your friend, expect to have an exciting and emotionally gratifying conversation.

You may have been wishing for some recognition and appreciation lately. Perhaps you had your eye on a promotion at work. The day ahead will show you which path will be the most productive. In order to succeed, you have to plan everything carefully and focus on one goal. You should be sure you have support for that goal. There’s a long, hard climb ahead, but you’re bound to make it!

Your friendly and persuasive nature is strong today. It will be easy to talk people around to your point of view. Enthusiasm and good humour make you a very desirable team player. Do be somewhat cautious about saying everything you are thinking. Some people do not appreciate the unvarnished truth.

Do your best to relax more even if you have to work. This will help keep things in perspective. You may be in the grip of an idea you can’t shake. This can be memories of the past. You will feel better if you express your feelings through creative outlets.

Today, you need to pay attention to what your intuition is telling you. Events today may make you realize that there is more than what meets the eye and a lot lies below the surface. Try to find useful things to do which make you feel enthusiastic and optimistic.

The energy today supports hard work and diplomacy. You can easily and gracefully cope with all types of people. Do your best to find practical solutions and don’t let anything discourage your efforts. Especially avoid being overly self-critical. Just stay organized and do your best with whatever you encounter.
