  • 42 weeks. With that said, that is nature's 42 weeks, not a guestimate by an ultrasound tech. Unless you know the exact date of your last period, the due date (40 weeks) could be off by a few days to a few weeks. Babies know when they're due and the human race survived this long without mass amounts of mothers being induced. Every day the baby is growing and thriving inside of mommy, and they will come out when they're ready.
