At 37 weeks, your due date is fast approaching but doctors do not agree that your baby is completely "full term" until 39 weeks.
Your baby’s lungs and brains gets to be fully matured as she spends the next two weeks in the womb. So if you are planning to have a repeat c-section, your doctor will schedule it for no earlier than 39 weeks unless there's a medical reason to intervene earlier.
Braxton Hicks contractions may be coming more frequently now and may last longer and be more uncomfortable.
You might also notice an increase in vaginal discharge. If you notice some "bloody show" (mucus stained with a tiny amount of blood) in the toilet or in your undies, labor is possibly a few days away or even less. Call your doctor if you have heavier spotting or bleeding.
Also be sure to ask your health-care provider about the results of your group B strep culture. That way, if the result isn't yet on your chart when you get to the hospital or birth center, you'll be able to inform the staff on time if you need antibiotics.
Getting a comfortable position to sleep well at night will likely be a huge challenge. If you can, rest enough during the day.
