Days to go



Pregnancy Symptoms

Few of the symptoms which you may notice at 39 weeks are:

Water Breaks

As you get closer to your deilvery, it becomes vital to understand the signs of a water break and the right signs which indicate when you must rush to the hospital for delivery. Through your pregnancy, your little bean is cushioned within a little sack filled with amniotic fluid. As your body get near to delivering, the sack ruptures, releasing the fluids. For some women, water breaks can be in small amounts, while for others it can be a full gush.

Cervical Dilation

You will delivery any time now, and cervial dialation will indicate when the time is right. Once you admit yourself for delivery, your OBGYN will check when the time is right depending on how dilated you are. In the weeks approaching delivery your dilation will measure at about 6 cm, when you are in active labor, it can be 7 to 8 cms, and moments before delivery you will dilate to about 10 cms.


Again, growing uterus is responsible for causing back pain in some pregnant women. As your uterus grows and stretches, the centre of gravity shifts causing pain on your lower back. In addition, the expanding uterus can also sometimes put pressure on a nerve resulting in back pain.

Vaginal Gush

If you experience discharge during late pregnancy that looks like boogers, you might be losing your mucus plug. Sometimes it comes out in one blob, but often it comes out in bits and pieces. This could indicate you're going into labor
