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.

“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’!”

Your Fortune For Today
Saturday, September 20th, 2014

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.

Ideas for creative, artistic, or service-oriented work might be coming thick and fast, although you could be torn between different possibilities. All your ideas seem workable, yet you feel you should settle on one for the moment. It might be a good idea to ask the advice of others. Even if you don’t do exactly what they suggest, the advice might show you new options. Hang in there.

A rush of humanitarian spirit and a desire to do some real good might find you looking into various charities in order to find those you might want to help. However, money could be flowing out for other purposes a bit too quickly for your tastes. It perhaps would be best to find one group that suits you and give only to that one. Save other worthy causes for another time.

Favorable energy helps to calm the stormy emotional seas today. Creature comforts and financial security will be a major focus. Indulge in a special dessert or other sensual treat. This is a lucky day to start a relationship based on a mutual desire for financial gain. Stubbornness works against you.

You’re naturally cooperative and find it easy to do things that make people feel welcome. Today you have the power to help others who are nervous and afraid. Point out the flaws in their thinking and propose something practical to do together. It’s a lucky night for a romantic date.

Does your job have a good profit-sharing plan, or do you own company stock? If so, expect to hear that its value has skyrocketed beyond what anyone had hoped. This is worthy of celebration. You and your colleagues should do just that. A romantic interest might offer congratulations. This trend is likely to continue. You might be a millionaire some day.

Your romantic side is flying high today. The opposite sex in general and your own partner in particular are going to seem especially attractive to you. You could also see in an entirely different light someone you think of as a friend. An increasingly busy social life is in the air, so expect some invitations to parties or other social events.

Your advice will be needed today by a family of friend. However, they might not come outright and say it. Just make sure that if see someone in distress, offer a kind word and some support.

Friends or work colleagues could introduce you to a field of study that captures your interest. You’re ready for something new in your life, and the lecture series that has been suggested to you could turn out to provide just the stimulation that you need. Your creative juices are flowing and you’ll want to make good use of them. Writing, painting, and photography are all good choices for today.
