Your Body at Week 37
Be prepared for a change in your hormones this week. The pregnancy hormones released by your placenta will see further changes in your body, although some women do not experience any change at this time.
If you are experience change, you may have noticed that your breasts have started to swell and may even be leaking small quantities of milk at random times.
Some women actually never see colostrum until their baby has arrived, which is all completely normal because every woman is different.
Your Baby At Week 37
Your baby is now ready to start accepting liquid foods, which means the digestive system is fully developed.
This week, your baby will ingest this dark green sticky substance called meconium. This will normally pass through a few days after delivery, however if your baby becomes stressed before delivery, he may pass it through in the amniotic fluid. If this does happen, your baby will need to be closely monitored during labour.
