Stages of Pregnancy Week by Week
Pregnancy Week 42
Find out what to expect from your postpartum recovery, and learn what life is like with Baby during his first week of life.
Watch Your Baby's Growth
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.
Your Changing Body
Baby's not here yet? Sit tight. Only 5 percent of newborns arrive on their actual due dates, but over 80 percent are born within two weeks of it. Most babies will be perfectly safe and healthy hanging out in your womb until 42 weeks.
Your Developing Baby
You're probably wondering what that stubborn little bugger could still possibly be doing in your womb! Most likely he's still happily moving about in your belly, and you should keep counting fetal kicks to be sure.
Tip of the Week
Waiting beyond your due date can give you lots of time for thinking and stressing about everything that could go wrong. Keep your mind occupied by reading up on baby care instead.
