Which week?

Week 39

You might not believe this now, but you will recognize the onset of labor right away. Try to sleep at night instead of worrying about what you will do if the time comes in the middle of the night. You will know for sure when you have to leave for the hospital.

The expectant mother

Your weight gain has stopped, and you might have even lost a few kilograms. Yet if the scale still shows an increase in your weight, it must be due to water retention.

The baby

The little one is 48-50 centimeters long and his weight has reached 3 kilograms. Now he turns toward the light and tries to hold with his hands.

Doctor’s advice

Many women lose their mucus plug during the course of this week. It is a brownish secretion responsible for shutting off the cervix from the outside world to protect the baby from infections. Losing the plug does not necessarily mean that labor will start right away, but it signifies cervical dilation. From now on, you should settle for having showers instead of taking baths.

Lifestyle

You should double check whether you have everything you will need during the following weeks. Wash and iron the baby clothes, let your nesting instinct set in.
