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

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. 

Your Baby’s Development at Week 37

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.

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 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.

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.

Great Writer

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.

When asked to define great, he said, “I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!”

He now works for Microsoft writing error messages. continue reading...
