Learn about the stages of your pregnancy with our detailed week-by-week guide, detailing how your body is changing, plus the growth and development of your baby.
At 39 weeks, your baby’s neck muscles have strengthened and he can hold his head away from the chest wall. That buoyancy is helped by the amniotic fluid.
It's go time! At 40 weeks, you'll be prepping to give birth at any time now.
At 41 weeks, your baby’s eyebrows, eyelashes and fingernails are all in place, and his organs are developed to sustain him in the “real world."
At 42 weeks, the only job remaining for you is to have the baby. Congratulations!
