39 Weeks Pregnant

Baby's Development

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.

Your Developments

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. Labor can start any time so be familiar with the signs of labor 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 labor.
