Pregnant, air bubbles in abdomen, foetus sticking to the right. Complications while conceiving?

I m 38 weeks pregnant with my first child.I m not dialated at all and was only 50% effaced as of a week ago. I just finished a large salad and feel full. The problem or question I have is that I am having air bubbles gurgling on my left side of the abdomen and the baby is sticking up mostly to my right. Is my baby goin to run out of fluid? Shes been large this whole pregnancy at a 31 week ultrasound she was 60% tile and 4.8 pounds according to the computer.

hi there, it is ok not to be fully effaced at 38 weeks you can safely wait till 40 weeks for the first stage of labour to commence. The gurgling sensation is beccause your stomach is pushed upwards by the gravid uterus.During ultra sound they do check the amniotic fluid index and if it was less they would have informed you, so do not worry about that. If you are suffering from gesstational diabetise then there is apossiblitey of having a large baby and so do visit your gynecologist and get your self evaluated again if you do have a large baby then they will assess the possibility of your having normal delivary or whether interventiuon will be required. If need be they might even plan to induce you depending on your clinical exam. So the best thing to do now would be to get yourself evaluated and act according to your obstretitians advise. Take care.
