  • they consider 40 weeks full term, but are not worried if you have the baby at 37 weeks. they prefer 38 weeks.

  • 38-42 wks is considered a "normal" pregnancy.
    My daughter was a scheduled Csection at 37 wks. w/o any testing of her lungs or anything before delivery. Weighed nearly 8 lbs.

  • Full term is anywhere between 37 and 42 weeks but your due date is calculated at 40 weeks from the first day of your last period
