Pregnancy Week 38

In pregnancy week 38, your little one weighs 6.8 pounds and is 19.6" long. If your baby is a boy, his testes would have completely descended into the scrotum, and if your young one is a girl her labia will be developed fully. From now until birth, there will be not much change in the length but your baby will still increase in weight although less than before.

In pregnancy week 38, it will be good for you to know that after delivery, the doctor will get the Agpar test carried out for your newborn baby. This makes it easy for the doctor to make an overall evaluation of your baby's overall health. The test is given a minute after your little one is born and it is repeated again after five minutes. They take into account your baby's color that is whether the color is healthy or whether there is a bluish tinge to the skin; your little one's heartbeat rate; your baby's reflexes; your baby's muscle tone and the baby's respiration. At one minute, the test tells how well your little one managed the birth. A high score of eight to ten, means the baby will be okay during the postnatal time, and a low score means the baby is put under observation or additional tests conducted. After five minutes, the test that is given is to see how your newborn baby is doing in the brand new surroundings outside the womb.

In pregnancy week 38, you will notice that the uterus is lower than before as your little one's head has dropped even more into the pelvis. This week you must pack a bag that you can take to the hospital for your delivery. Some of the things that you may want to pack are slippers and warm socks; clothes for you to come back home in; camera to take the first shots of your baby; watch with a second hand to see how many contractions you are having; magazine or books to read; nursing bras and breast pads; period pads; your usual toiletries, baby's toiletries and clothes; snacks and drinks.

In pregnancy week 38, you can take it slow this week and until your delivery. If you can take off from work, you must do so. Enjoy your last few weeks with your little one in your tummy, but I think you have come to a stage where you want to deliver as fast as possible and hold your little one in your arms.

Write down the names of friends and relatives, other than family who can help you out when you just deliver. Let the members of the family who you are thinking of inviting to the delivery room, know way in advance. Meet your doctor, have a thorough discussion on the options for delivery, and decide on the method of delivery if you have not done so. If you are going to have a natural delivery, go through the breathing exercises, so that you will be able to remember to do it during delivery. Get your partner to go through the breathing with you so that he can support you during the delivery.
