More tests or procedures? 38 weeks

I'm 38 weeks & I have an appointment tommorow I was wondering what my doctor may check for.
The last appointment I went to at 37 weeks they did a strep swab and they also asked me for urine.
Before I left me doctor told me to eat lots of oranges and drink a lot water for my appointment tommorow.
I didn't ask why & now I can't help but wonder. I haven't been checked for dilation yet could that be what she's going to be looking at?
I'm a first time mom & don't know what they will be doing to me any ideas on what they may do and is there any other check ups I should know about?
Because the step swab was a total surprise for me & I really don't want anymore surprises Lol

My OB informed me whenever she was going to do the strep b test. Next appointment your OB probably s going to check for dilation as many OB do that after 37weeks. She should aldo check for your baby's heart rate and check your urine to make sure you don't  have an UTI or protein in your urine. Other than that I don't know.
