The important questions to ask are about the onset of labor. What to expect? What to do? When to call the doctor/midwife? How to differentiate false labor and true labor? These are some of the key question to discuss at 36 weeks of pregnancy.

Around the 36th week of pregnancy, doctors usually recommend expecting mothers to visit them weekly instead of every two weeks. It is important to make sure you get checked for bacterial infections as well as fluctuating levels of amniotic fluid. Talk to your doctor about these risks so you can be sure you are healthy for the upcoming weeks. You should also discuss your plans for the day of delivery, such as pain management methods or who you want in the room with you. Your doctor can also help you prepare for delivery by teaching you the tell-tale signs of labor. This will help you know when to make that long-awaited trip to the hospital.
