Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Avoid doing heavy work, avoid sex, Sleep on left hand side lateral position. Do watch for regular baby movements. Take adequate rest and a high protein diet.Regular B.P. chekup is needed. If pains do not start by 38 weeks then go for weekly bio physical profile.
