39 Weeks Pregnant
At Week 39 baby is officially "Full Term" and ready to be born any time. Baby's weight gain continues - though at a slower rate.
You might notice changes as your body prepares for delivery - baby might be engaged in the pelvis and Braxton Hicks (mock/rehearsal) contractions might be stronger. You may experience noticeable loss of amniotic fluid or the mucous plug may come away. Labour can start any time so be familiar with the signs of labour and keep in contact with your health care provider.
Pregnancy To Do's for Week 39
Check if you have done everything you need to do before the birth. Continue to get rest. Keep in contact with your health care practitioner, particularly if you notice changes in baby's movements, or signs of labour.
