My Pregnancy Week 40

Pregnancy Week 40

Congratulations! You’ve reached, what will most likely be, the final week in your pregnancy (if you haven’t delivered already)! Your baby has probably reached her birth weight by this week in your pregnancy. Most babies weigh somewhere between six and eight pounds when they are born. Boys are usually longer and heavier than girls.

Not much has changed from last week, all his internal organs are ready to support him in the outside world, he’s developed healthy amounts of baby fat over the past week and his immune system is developing and will continue to develop after he is born.

      I know how you feel, my boy didn’t come until a week and a half past my due date and was delivered via c-section. Baby will be here before you know it. Best wishes!

    Today is my due date. As of yesterday I was 2 CM dilated. I was induced early with my first child due to preeclampsia, but this one and I are still healthy. Frustrated because I’ve been having a lot of nerve pain and I’m just ready to have this beautiful baby already. Been doing more walking and stairs today, so hoping we have some active contractions soon.

  6. Today is my due date , and still no labor i was induced with my first child and stayed pregnant for 10 1/2 months pregnant

    Im 40 weeks today! TODAY is my due date. Although at the moment I see no signs of my lil bundle of joy being born today. Last night I walked up and down 3 flights of stairs, I paddled on the exercise bike. Over the past few days, I have eaten 2 whole pineapples. I have tried everything spicy, including extra spicy jerk sauce. He’s just not ready to come out. At my appointment last friday I was 80% effaced, and have not dilated. My patience is really gone at this point. My Doctor really surprised me this morning. He called before 8:30 a.m. I am scheduled to be induced next Monday if my baby isn’t born before then. Until then, I will keep exercising, hoping my Son makes his grand entrance. Everyone say he will come on Christmas Day, which is 2 days from now! Let’s see.

  14. I will be 40 weeks this Friday November 22! I have had a couple labor scares but, my little jumping bean is just not ready to come out. I am so anxious to finally see her beautiful face!
    I have an appointment tomorrow to see if I have dilated any, I sure hope so!

    I’m 39 weeks now. I’m so tired & am not enjoying my sleep @ all. Gave birth the 1st time when as 38 weeks coz the Dr decided 2 induce me. I’m getting depressed over this waiting now.

    If I’m still having contractions they are painless, I hope he comes out either Monday or Wednesday afternoon so hubby can be there and also big brother and sister.

  20. Profile photo of Karen Karen says:

    I was due 8/16/13 and I’m still waiting. My contractions were 1 hour apart yesterday and this morning but have been 30 minutes apart (approx) since the afternoon, at this rate he should be here Monday or Tuesday.
