    At 38 weeks you are well advanced and ready for delivery so no worries.what you might be seeing might be pressure from the bladder if full and this is due to reduced capacity from pressing baby or your amniotic fluid might be leaking please get your physician to see you. Depending on how long a scan can be done to estimate the amniotic fluid content in your tommy to see if it is adequate. But try and do that as soon as possible.
