Your Body at Week 40
Finally, you have made it to week 40! If your baby hasn't already made an appearance, chances are this is the last week of your pregnancy.
For some it will be a very emotional saying goodbye to your bump, if you have loved watching it grow bigger each week but for others who may not have had an enjoyable pregnancy, will be relieved that the time has finally come to welcome their baby into the big wide world.
You may notice that your waters have broken and that you are going into labour naturally. Others on the other hand, your midwife might have suggested an ultrasound, just to see how the baby is doing and see if you need to be induced to wriggle things along.
Your Baby At Week 40
The time has nearly come to care for your baby on the outside world. Your body has worked so hard for the past 9 months to give all the nutrients and support to develop them into the healthy and lovely little human they will be.
By the time they are born they will weigh anywhere between 7 and 8 pounds possibly even more. As your baby has stayed in a little longer, they may present more alert when born. They could also have more hair than normal.
From all of us here at BABYGO®, we just want to wish you all the best and the safe arrival of your little one.
