Some babies seem eager to join the world and arrive at around 39 weeks pregnant, while others seem so happy and comfortable in the womb that they stick around for another 2 or 3 weeks. Which sort will yours be? Labor may start at any time – do you know how to recognize the earliest symptoms of labor?
The Pregnancy Symptoms Calendar
Exploring each of the pregnancy weeks
Pregnancy is a time of rapid physical change - both for your body and your growing baby - it can be hard to keep up with the stages of pregnancy week by week. But, don’t worry, we’re here to help!
Welcome to our handy calendar, where we’ll give you information on symptoms and your baby’s development, as well as helpful tips and checklists each week from the very first week of pregnancy through to when you’re finally ready to deliver.
Created by moms, for moms, we explain the different stages of pregnancy week by week and make sense of the doctor speak!
Simply click on any of the weeks below and we’ll do our very best to tell you all you need to know about pregnancy at that stage.
Congratulations! You’ve made it through the full 40 weeks of pregnancy. Now you just need to wait patiently (or impatiently!) for your baby to make an appearance! Don’t be too surprised if labor doesn’t kick off this week, though. Statistics show that nearly a third of pregnancies go beyond their estimated due date. Get as much rest as you can and reserve your strength for when labor finally starts.
