38 Weeks Pregnant

.

Baby

Baby gains weight about 30 grams a day. Baby is peeing into the amniotic fluid and practicing breathing.

You

Moving can be difficult, because the baby’s head is against the pelvis. Even standing up from couch or the bed might be a challenge now. First turn on Your side, then sit up, and stand up only after that. You may feel tingling or numbness in your feet and pelvic area. This happens when the baby puts pressure on the pelvic nerves.

Ideas

  • Treat yourself! Get a haircut, manicure and pedicure. Also, a special prenatal massage will not do bad.
  • Be prepared for becoming a mom, and read as much as possible about the newborn baby care.
  • Enjoy the last peaceful moments with your partner. Spend quality time together. It is quite impossible to find time for that later.
