My Pregnancy Week 38

Brought to you by
Pregnancy Week 38

Congratulations! You've reached the final weeks in your pregnancy (if you haven't delivered already)! Your baby has probably reached his birth weight by now. Most babies weigh somewhere between six to eight pounds when they are born. Boys are usually longer and heavier than girls. All of his internal organs are ready to support him in the outside world. She has also developed healthy amounts of baby fat over the past week, and her immune system is developing, and will continue to develop after she is born. Her fingernails and toenails have reached the end of her fingers and toes, and might even need a trim after she is born!

Not much has changed from last week, all his internal organs are ready to support him in the outside world, he's developed healthy amounts of baby fat over the past week and his immune system is developing and will continue to develop after he is born.

    I’m 38 weeks pregnant today and I have another doctors apt tommorw. Last week however I hadn’t dilated and and my cervix was still closed. I’m so ready to meet my baby boy and becoming more anxious. Besides I’m ready to be a mom and not a pregnant lady.

    I am 38 weeks and 3 days! At my last appointment I was dilated to a 3 I’m really hoping it will be any time now. I have been super uncomfortable today and have these brief stabbing pains in my left side but it’s definitely not contractions. Can’t wait until my new baby girl arrives.

  10. Profile photo of Teela Teela says:

    I’m exactly 38 weeks today, but for the last 3 days I’ve had a stabbing pain right above my vagina. It hurts and is very uncomfortable and occurs at night. Is it Braxton Hicks contractions or am I dilating? I’ve also noticed that my baby has dropped overnight. Are these signs that I could be going into labor early? I’m scheduled to get induced this thursday but with these symptoms could I possibly go in early. I’m a first time mom so any advice from experienced moms would help me out a lot

  23. Profile photo of Stephanie Stephanie says:

    Please come out!! I enjoyed being pregnant until the past 2 weeks. I am so tired, no energy, and stretch marks appeared out of nowhere! I loved carrying him and letting him mature inside of me, but I am ready to take care of him face-to-face. Crossing my fingers he comes before his due date (January 18).
