42 Weeks pregnant

Week 42 starts on day 294 and goes up to day 301. It is your pregnancy week.


Length of your baby: 52 centimeter / 20.5 inches
Weight of your baby: 3600 grams / 7 lbs 15 ozs

Your pregnancy at 42 weeks 

 

What's happening with mum 

Delivery date has been and gone and you are still pregnant. This is nothing to worry about although it is frustrating and perhaps more painful as baby is still continuing to grow and press down on on your pelvis.

As there are some complications which can arise when a birth is a couple of weeks overdue such as low amniotic fluid and a pinched umbilical chord, provided you keep monitoring movement and look out for any signs of blood spotting, abdominal pain or unusual discharge, late labour is normal.

Around this time your midwife or doctor will dicuss the possibility of inducing labour. This can be done several ways from introducing hormones to the cervix to relax it and make it softer to an amniotomy which involves the amniotic sac being deliberately broken.

Your midwife will advise which of the many treatments are best for you, if any. Providing you and your baby are in good health they may decide to let things take their natura course.

 

 

What's happening with baby

Although baby still continues to grow, this growth is hampered by the lack of space now available for him to expand into. His skin may also start to dry out and wrinkle as the protective layers of lanugo and vernix which kept him oiled and protected will mostly now have been shed.
