Your pregnancy at 41 weeks 

 

What's happening with mum 

If baby still hasn't appeared by week 41, don't worry. In most pregnancies the due date is at best a guestimate. Only 5% of babies actually make their ETA with 10% deciding to stay where they are until week 41.

As long as you continue to monitor any pains you are having and watch out for your water breaking you can relax and make good use of these last few days before your baby is born.

If by the end of this week your body still shows no signs of going into labour your doctor or midwife might want to discuss induction or bringing on labour but this is usually not talked about until week 42.

 

 

What's happening with baby

41 Wochen schwanger

Although baby is already a fully functioning human being he will continue to grow and develop while awaiting his delivery into the world. Finger and toe nails continue to grow as well as hair, eyebrows and eyelashes.

Your midwife or doctor may suggest an ultrasound scan to check baby's development and make sure there is nothing hindering the onset of labour.

    Welcome to my son at 41 weeks

    Our birth story :-)... On February 19th I called hospital at 5:05 to make sure no emergencies came in as I was instructed to do. Was given the all clear to come in at 7:30 to be induced. After getting everything ready for my son to be watched for day, myself ready, and my mom who was attending this glorious event we left. We were both nervous and excited that it was finally happening... We got 15 minutes away from hospital and they called saying 4 women came in that I no longer had a room... possibly couldn`t get one till Friday 2/21 Anger/frustration/irritable/ridiculous/seriously? all words not even near explaining the emotions I was feeling. I was told if not called by 3 to call yet again in morning to see if there was a room on 2/20. Although I had all those feelings running through me, I was grateful because once I got home my son woke up sick and did not leave mommy`s lap all day! At about 10 pm I started feeling cramps but this happened for weeks so didn`t think anything of it and went to bed. Called hospital at 5:30 and again was told to come in but this time at 7:15 am on 2/20. Still had a little cramping but I drove because my mom hates snow. I noticed a tinge to my discharge that morning and mom said we will just let them know when we get there. We didn`t get excited this time though due to what happened day before. On drive over I was cramping quite a bit and coughed and thought I felt a pop in upper part of stomach after which a cramp got worse. In parking garage getting out of car I felt a gush of liquid between legs and said I think my water might have broke. Sure enough it had!!! Waiting for midwife to get there and contractions started getting worse. At 9:45 he checked me and said 3ish cm we will start pitocin. I said I would rather wait and see if labor progresses on it`s own. He said I had till noon to show signs. I hoped in shower and got out and said epidural now because contractions were horrible and I did not want to wait and end up at 9 and half like I did with my son. By 11 I had my epidural and felt great got checked by nurse and she said I felt like I was a 5 but needed my water broke on bottom it had broke on top. That Ray my midwife would be in after his lunch to do it. At about 12:30 he came in broke my water and said your 8 cm. At 1pm he checked again and it was time!!!!! At 1:26pm my beautiful girl arrived weighing in at 8 lbs 11.7 oz and 20 inches long. 41 weeks and 1 day over due. She waited till absolutely last sec to decide to do it all on her own and then sped thing up! That`s our story my lil Emma Leanne <3
