Pregnancy Week 40

Week 40, marks the official end of your pregnancy.

Do not become alarmed if your due date should come and go without incident.

As discussed on the Pregnancy page, 40 weeks is just an estimate, with most babies being born somewhere between week 38 and week 42.

By the end of this week, your baby will be about 14 inches or 360 millimeters in length from crown to rump and weigh almost 7.5 pound or 3400 grams.

Remember however, that healthy babies come in all sizes.

Third trimester symptoms will persist.
