By 37 weeks, your baby is around 19 inches long and over 6 pounds. Its major organs are ready to work in the real world. The brain and lungs still need more time to fully mature, but if your baby is born today, chances are good that they would be just fine. Any guesses for what your child’s hair color might be? You’ll learn the answer soon, as many babies are born with locks that are an inch or longer.
And these Braxton-Hicks contractions might be kicking into high gear by now. In earlier pregnancy, Braxton-Hicks contractions likely didn’t produce much change in your body. Now, even at irregular intervals, they could be thinning out your cervix (called effacement) in preparation for delivery day.
Try changing positions, drinking water, or resting to help calm a particularly bad spell. If you can time the contractions or they get stronger, you might be in early labor.
Between all of your symptoms, give yourself extra time to get around. Ask for help if you have offers. Feeling uncomfortable and like you don’t have much control over your body can be disheartening, but you’re doing an important job.
