Print - Week 42



Hello baby! Your birth is truly around the corner and we can't wait to meet you! At the 42 week mark, most midwives and doctors want you to give birth soon, but some may be ok with going a few days past if you pass another biophysical profile. As human beings we are not machines. Many people grow babies faster or slower and cook babies at different rates.

A post-date pregnancy doesn't automatically mean your baby will be enormous either, many babies are 7-8 pounds at 42 weeks. Some "guess" dates might be off as well since your cycle may have been longer or shorter than the average, or perhaps you ovulated on a different day. See more info on "due" dates.
