stop fixating on a number! 40 weeks is just an average, just like 28days (menstural cycle) is the average. That means some are shorter, some are longer. And- the 40 week stat is OLD, and in many proffessional opinions- outdated.

Whenever your baby is born will be exactly on time. Trust your body, your baby and your birth.
