HI Kruti, labour can start post 38 weeks as well. Till 40 weeks, it is fine. The doctor needs to do weekly check-ups with you and you will also have to be more vigilant as to baby's movements, water breaking and pain. the baby's head can get engaged as late as just before labour so would advise you to wait and watch.

Thanks Dr. Neha D. khodke
