This week, your doctor may test you for group B streptococcus, a bacteria you may carry that can cause health problems in your baby. If you test positive, you'll get antibiotics during delivery to reduce the risk of passing it to baby.

What's happening to baby: Her lungs are nearly fully developed, and she may weigh up to 6 pounds by now! She's likely in position for delivery, too.

What's happening to Mom: As baby's arrival gets closer, you'll get some relief from your breathing problems as baby drops into your pelvis.

Lightening can also increase pressure on your bladder.
