37 weeks pregnant: your body

Do you have your hospital bag ready yet?

This is the thirty-seventh week of the third trimester of your pregnancy. From week 37 you need to start looking out for symptoms of labour. Braxton Hicks contractions can be easily confused with contractions, so make sure you can tell the difference. Have you felt your water break? Have you experienced a blood tinted vaginal discharge called the bloody show? It’s important to know if you are going into real labour, so you don’t have to face your midwife turning you away because you are not ready yet.

Pregnancy symptoms

  • Changes in baby movement
  • Cervical dilation
  • Bloody show (if you go into labour)

Remember: You should have your birth bag at the ready.
