Are you planning on breast feeding? If so, I would use this time to go to a breast feeding class. Your hospital may run them, or be able to suggest one.
I used my last few weeks to do a bit of research/reading on what to expect once bubs is born, and how to look after a baby as I had no clue!
And we also cooked lots of simple meals like spag bol and put them in the freezer so we had food.

Like a PP I would cook up a few meals and freeze or if you don't have the room stock the pantry with basic easy ingredients and nice tins of soup. MAke sure you have plenty of flour, herbs tin tomatoes, champignons, tomato paste, aprico nectar etc etc.
Also stock up on things you will need but have no expiry date - toilet paper (soft), washing powder, deodorant, socks, soap, pads ( normal night time and regular).
I would also make sure you have lots of 'snacky' things that are easy to eat but are also healthy. You could make a shopping list of things for your DP or family member to have waiting for you at home - milk, bread, fresh fruit and veg, english muffins.

If BF'ing, some breast massage to get your colostrum flowing. Express a drop or two from each nipple while showering.
I found it empowering and useful to express some colostrum for a day or two before I was induced, in case I was out for the count after the birth. This came in handy ~ I threw up for HOURS afterwards and the colostrum I'd supplied was indeed given to him in my absence (I knew I was having a premmie).
Have your support people organised, go through your birth plan, but remember things may go differently to how you've planned them.
Good luck to you!
