Find out what to expect from your postpartum recovery, and learn what life is like with Baby during his first week of life.
Your baby is just about ready to make an appearance. Here¿s what to expect during labor and a boost of encouragement for you to take into the delivery room.
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.
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.
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.
