38 Weeks pregnant

Week 38 starts on day 266 and goes up to day 273. It is your thirty-ninth pregnancy week.


Length of your baby: 48 centimeter / 18.9 inches
Weight of your baby: 3200 grams / 7 lbs 1 ozs

Your pregnancy at 38 weeks 

 

What's happening with mum 

By now you are probably just waiting for signs that the birth is imminent. You might notice you have a lot more discharge than normal, perhaps a thick gloop appears. This is probably your mucus plug which gets released as your cervix prepares for labour. The mucus plug has insulated and protected your cervix for most of your pregnancy.

 

 

What's happening with baby

Around this time baby should weigh 7lbs and with all systems go, should be just as impatient as you for the birth. He has been practicing for months in anticipation.

All organs are fully formed and apart from eye color which will change after birth while pigment is still being formed. 

The nervous system and brain functions are still being fine tuned in preparation for all the new experiences he will be subject to after birth.

    I am 38wks pregnant with my third..had menstrual like cramps last night for about an hour..then they stopped. Lost my mucus plug this morning. At my checkup on tues, the doc said I was 5cm and 60% effaced. So hopefully a baby this week. If not, Doc is going to induce next week. Can`t wait to meet our little girl!!!

    38w,4d and still no baby Bailey. I`m not even a full centimeter yet, any advice?

  • MatthewsMommy

    My baby was due May 7th but my water ended up breaking April 23, didn`t have contractions until April 24 at 2 am I stayed home until 4pm because I wanted to do my best to avoid c-section & figured the less time I spend at the hospital the better chances I had. When I got to the hospital around 4:25 pm my midwife said I was 7cm dilated, about 6 hrs passed & when she checked me again I hadn`t dilated! So I was given a small amount of oxytocin to help me contract & by 1:32 am my baby was born. Oh & I was able to give birth w/out c-section or any pain meds. It was tough but possible!
