Welcome to healthcaremagic,
Normal full term deliveries take place between 37 to 42 weeks. As you are in the 39th week of your pregnancy, it is a normal thing to happen. You labour pains may start in a week or two and you may deliver. In case you do not deliver by 42 weeks your doctor might induce labour pains and you will deliver.
You are absolutely normal now and have nothing to worry about. Hope that answers your question.
Regards, Dr.Ismail
