Print - Week 40



Congratulations, you've reached your "guess" date! As we've discussed before, this is not an expiration date. Many healthy births occur in the 40-42 week window, but of course many people feel very "done" at this point. Not being able to sleep, feeling uncomfortable… these all can make the last few weeks of your pregnancy drag on.

Try and practice some self care and relish the last few moments you have holding your baby inside your body. Sit in the sunshine, journal, take a bath, try and enjoy each moment as much as you can. Your baby will be in your arms soon!

Your baby looks exactly like a newborn. All the systems are in place and mature enough to work in the outside world. Now baby is just continuing to add fat stores to help them regulate their blood sugar and temperature after birth.
