At 38 weeks pregnant, your baby is the size of a small pumpkin. Their nails are still growing and may reach past their fingertips.

You’re nearing your due date, you might have anxious thoughts. You may have trouble sleeping or weird dreams.

You’ll have another prenatal visit this week. Your doctor will likely check you for signs of labor, including changes to the cervix.

Try to relax, even though it may be hard! One thing you can do is to practice the breathing exercises you learned in childbirth class. You can also try meditation to relieve stress.
