Week 41 | Month 10 (9 months and 1 week)

Baby’s Growth

Your baby crossed the due date? It is perfectly normal, as most babies decide to come out after the end of week 40. In fact, only 5% of the babies are delivered on their actual due date. If your baby is thinking of a late check out, let it be; there is still room for baby’s growth and perfect health.

Baby's Weight

The ideal weight of the baby is estimated to be approximately 3.6 kg (7.93 pounds).

Mother's Heath

By week 41, your body is all geared up for the delivery of the little one. There is still time for naturally induced labour so do not worry about the baby’s overdue, yet. Most post term deliveries aren’t late but just a miscalculation of the date of conception.

Pregnancy Symptoms

Diarrhea is a good symptom to indicate that the delivery is nearing apart from the contractions. So sit back and let your sweet pea send you the signal. Pregnant women may also suffer from symptoms like more frequent urination, bloody show, pelvic pain, haemorrhoids, cervical dilation and effacement.

Pregnancy Tips
  • Read magazines, interact with your family members and spouse, meditate or just have a warm bath to feel stress-free and clear your mind.
  • As per your gynecologist’s suggestion, take a walk which may help to dilate the cervix for easy delivery.
  • If you feel a sudden burst of energy due to nesting instinct, do not involve in any wok. You can save this surge of energy for the big day.
