" anything between 38 and 42 weeks is considered full term, you will be fine "
That is based on an average.
Plenty of women will have healthy pregnancies that deliver outside of that average (whether before or after the due period).
The average estimated due period is just a guesstimated timeframe. If you & baby are healthy and fine you might still be pregnant a month from now.
