Pregnancy of 41 weeks

As you may have found out by now every pregnancy is unique and the due date is never set in stone with the exception of the cases you choose or have to opt for a C-section. Keep in mind that being 41 weeks pregnant does not mean you have passed the delivery term but rather that there is a slight chance you and your doctor miscalculated the delivery date. During the 41th pregnancy week, your baby is fully developed, most likely positioned head first and engaged in the pelvic area.
Remember that your baby is not necessarily delayed and focus on the positive side of being 41 weeks pregnant. Your baby cannot be rushed to come into the world and you should know that over 50% of the babies choose to come later than 40 weeks.


Pelvic pressure is extremely common during this week and so are the hemorrhoids related issues.
At 41 weeks pregnant, a bit over 20 inches long, your baby has continued to grow and may now weigh almost 8 pounds. This week can be quite challenging for your nerves not to mention the nerves of everyone around you.
Most practitioners won’t let you wait more than two weeks past your due date to give birth because it puts you and your baby at increased risk for complications. About 5 to 6 percent of women have prolonged pregnancies that extend three or more weeks beyond their estimated due dates.


Babies born at 42 weeks and beyond can have dry parchment-like skin and are often overweight.
