Week 42


If you’re reading this, you’re one of the rare mamas-to-be who makes it to 42 weeks. And while you might be feeling like you’re going a little crazy, rest assured that as long as your doc is monitoring baby closely, she’s seeing to it that baby’s doing just fine in there. Its super rare for a baby to be born after week 42, so you’ll get to meet baby really soon — we promise!
