If Baby still hasn't arrived yet, find out why, and discover options for speeding up labor and delivery.
At long last, you're about to meet your son or daughter! Watch the miraculous journey your baby will go through as he (or she) exits your uterus and enters the world.
Still pregnant? That's okay. Babies come to term anywhere between 38 and 42 weeks -- your 40-week due date simply marks the midpoint of this period.
As amazing as it is to meet your baby for the first time, don't be alarmed if she's not exactly, um, as good-looking as you imagined she would be. Those delivered vaginally tend to have temporarily misshapen heads and puffy eyes.
When you think about what labor and delivery might be like, odds are you're not exactly fantasizing about having a C-section. (It is major surgery, after all.) So you may feel upset or disappointed if your doctor recommends one.
