Quoting bbyblueAK:40wks is just an estimate it could be shorter could be longer. Sperm can live up to 7days
This! Ive never actually made it to 40 weeks but it is considered a full term pregnancy at 36-42 weeks
Correct. The 40 weeks begins the day you started your last period. So you're not really pregnant the first 2 weeks (approx).
Quoting pbirdie24:Ok so when you are really 40 weeks ur baby inside is 38 weeks? Im confused about the fetal age. When you are 2 weeks pregnant u really not pregnant?
I've heard sperm can live up to 5 day inside a woman.
Some women do make it to 40 weeks+ and some don't. It usually just depends on when the woman's body and the baby are ready to make the grand finale.
Up to 5 days and yes you are really pregnnat for 40 weeks, somtimes less and sometimes longer.
