The Mom:

If this is your first pregnancy, you and your spouse might want to plan a special evening together before becoming new parents. This will give you an opportunity to discuss your feelings and ensure these last few weeks are special for you both.

If you have other children, involve them in the preparations in these final weeks. Your children are probably very excited. Help them make a Welcome Baby banner for the nursery, or a card for them to give the baby one she arrives. If you expect a lot of visitors with baby gifts once the baby arrives, and you have a toddler or preschooler, you may want to prepare a basket of big sister/brother gifts. These could be just small books, crayons etc. This will help them from feeling left out when the new baby gets presents. It's not unusual for toddlers and preschoolers to experience some regression when a new sibling arrives. Make sure that you make time for them away from the new baby. You can also hold "Big Sister/ Big Brother Classes for them. You can give them diapers and let them practice diapering their dolls. Use dolls to help them learn how to hold the baby. Your hospital may provide a sibling class as well.

The Baby:
The vernix that your baby started developing earlier is getting quite thick now. His lungs are still not quite mature, but he is practicing breathing more and more each day. He weighs around 4.4 pounds, and is 19.4 inches long.
