37 Weeks Pregnant

37 Week Pregnant: Tip of the Week

If you own a pet, such as a dog, it may have been your first "baby." In order to help it with the transition of having a screaming baby around, bring home a hat that the baby wears in the hospital ahead of time. This will allow your pet to get used to the scent of your new bundle of joy!
 

37 Weeks Pregnant: A Pregnancy Myth

Myth: You can't get pregnant if you are breastfeeding.
 
There is no truth to this pregnancy myth. When you are breastfeeding, you usually do not get your period, and therefore do not ovulate right away. It could be a couple months until you get your period again or it could be the entire time you breastfeed -- it varies from woman to woman.
 
When you do resume your regular menstrual cycle for the first time, that first cycle begins with ovulation. This means that you will not know you have ovulated and have the ability to become pregnant.
 
Talk to your healthcare provider about the mini-pill or other methods of birth control, if you do not want to become pregnant again right away.
