Best Answer

You are considered full term at 37+ weeks (after your last period) and may go into labor anytime. If you are still pregnant at 40 weeks your doctor will assess you and decide if they think you will need to be induced. Some women are pregnant for 42 weeks and have to be induced.

The average pregnancy goes 40 weeks after the last period, or 38 weeks after conception.
