Your Body at Week 38
As your placenta is pumping out pregnancy hormones, another common change you might see is more increased vaginal discharge, which may look slightly brown or pink. This can occur especially if you have had sex recently to get things moving down there.
It’s normally nothing to worry about and is just a sign that your cervix has become softer as a result of increased blood supply.
However, any bright red bleeding is occurring down there followed by abdominal pain, you should report this immediately to your midwife or GP.
Your Baby At Week 38
As your baby continues to grow right up until birth, the movements should still be frequent. Meaning a kick to the ribs or a sudden punch to your abdomen wall. You will need to keep alert of your baby’s activities and if for some reason, you feel as though they have slowed down, you will need to notify your midwife or GP right away. A change in your baby’s movement can mean they need help.
