  • a normal pregnancy should last 38 weeks if you count from the day of conception. However, the day of conception is not always easy to determine, especially in the ancient past. Therefore, people then have used 40 weeks from the first day of the last menstrual period, on the assumption that women have 28 day cycles and they conceive 14 days after the start of their menses.This traditional way of counting has been in use till now.

    Therefore, when we say you are 10 weeks pregnant, you have actually conceived 8 weeks ago. Based on this type of calculation, a pregnancy will have the expected date of delivery at 40 completed weeks but a pregnancy that has completed 37 weeks is considered full term already

  • Once you reach week 37 in your pregnancy, if you were to begin labour your health care practitioner would not try to stop it at all and let you progress naturally until you gave birth. At 37 weeks, your little one’s body is complete and ready to function outside of the womb.
